Patch Up Your Nails Tutorial

Here's what you'll need: A top coat (I use Sally Hansen's Top Coat), base color, "patch" colors (I used 4 colors), nail art pen/polish/ or polish with toothpick/dotting tool for the stitches.

First, prep for your manicure, to make it last longer. Remove your old polish, if any, and soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. Trim your nails and push back your cuticles but don't cut them. Do not use lotions or oils on your hands before you start, it may make the dry time longer.
Start by applying your base color, I used 2 coats of a french white tip white. 
This look is also pretty cool on a nude nail if you feel like skipping the base coat.
Make 3 dots on your nail leaving some white along the bottom, mix up the colors on each nail.
With your "stitch" polish make a few stitches completely around each dot.
Continue until each patch has been properly stitched in :)
 Apply your top coat and you are done!

Thanks for taking a peek, hope you enjoyed.
If you give it a try feel free to come back and share!
