    apply base coat, let dry.
    paint two coats of the white and pink on what ever fingers you want. let dry either 100% or almost 100%

    Step 3

    I didn't have a striper so I just used a black sharpie to draw some random lines to make the bandages. Fill in a small box shape for the eyes and add two white dots, then a smaller pink dot and a tiny black dot, I used a pen. [optional.] top coat if you used a striper [top coat smears the sharpie, you can try it but BE CAREFUL]

    I haven't decided what to do on my pink nails, I'll probably just leave them pink. And I kind of use the pink for Breast Cancer.
