    Paint a bright and fun base color (or your favorite color!). I used Julep's Robin and applied a fast dry top coat to create a smooth canvas.

    Paint tiny scallops in a straight line along your cuticle. The size of your nail will determine how many you'll be able to fit. I used OPI's My Vampire is Buff.

    Step 4

    Using your brush or a dotting tool, add 2-3 dots extending off the tip of the triangle. Add more dots along the edge of the triangles to fill in your look.

    **Note** Don't worry if your nail art polish is thick/textured on your nail. Adding a top coat when you're done will create a smooth nail surface.

    Step 5

    Add your favorite top coat and that's it! You'll have a bright and unique manicure that is sure to turn heads.

    You can also mix things up a bit by flipping the design - have the scallops start along the tip of your nail instead!
