Step 1: Paint all your nails with a base coat and then one to two coats of your favorite nude polish. The one shown here is Spoiled Show Me Some Skin.
Step 2: Using a sandy brown color and a dotting tool place some non-uniform dots on your nails. Not too many as you still want space to paint around them. This is China Glaze Kalahari Kiss.
Step 3: If you choose- you can make an accent nail using a glitzy brown polish on one nail. I chose Spoiled Cougar Attack, and I applied it in the same manner as that in Step 2.
Step 4: Finally, taking your black polish (Milani Black Swift shown here) you make "C" and "bracket" shapes around your brown spots. Fill in any extra space with smallish black spots as well.
Step 5: Finish with your top coat (I finally tried Seche Vite and I am amazed at it's non-smudging compared to my other fast-drying top coats! No complaints thus far) and you're all set.
I hope you try this and let me know how it went. Happy Painting!
