1. What’s our primal required step?! Always prep the nails and apply base coat. The base coat will serve as a protective barrier between polish and nail plate while helping the color adhere flawlessly.

Use your cream color as the base for all nails.

2. Paint half of your nails with the pastel orange polish.

3. While your orange polish is still wet, lightly paint on the cream polish creating a brush stroke/gradient effect on the nail.

4. Using your white polish brush, create a blob shape which will be your egg white. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

5. Create your egg yolk by dotting your yellow polish brush onto the egg white. Apply your top coat to seal in your look.
