How To Get The Look 

Shape nails and paint on a  thin base coat with A La Carte Ridge Filler (1)

Paint 2 coats of OPI Need Sunglasses (2) and leave to dry

Using a striper brush, paint a curved line using OPI Fly (3) to the top of the nail

Clean the striper brush in between colour and paint another thick, curved line with Models Own Bubblegum (4) under the blue shade.

Continue to paint another thick, curved line with Models Own Pukka Purple (5)

Dot a spot of Seche Vite Topcoat (6) where you want to place gems. Using Mo You Nail Art Rhinestones (7) place a large gem in the corner of the nail. Using tweezers can make this step less fiddely. Scatter smaller gems with heart and star shapes on each colour strip to create a playful feel.

Finish with a coat of Seche Vite (6) for a high shine finish and to set the rhinestones in place.
