  4. Paint half of  your nail in your desired color of choice.
  5. Apply dry fast top coat and allow to dry
  6. Using your dotting tool and your first color of choice place some dots randomly as done above 
  7. Using the smaller end of your dotting tool or just a smaller sized dotting tool in general (can also be done using a toothpick), create c's around the dots that were previously made using black 
  8. Add some smaller dots in between the larger dots that are currently there
  9. Clean up any excess polish from around your cuticles using a brush lightly dipped in pure acetone
