All I did was pick 2 nail polish colors to create a colorblocked effect. You could also use one solid color or try 3-5 shades and make into a pattern. I decided on OPI (Bullish on OPI & Chocolate Moose) with Sally Hansen White On around the edges. Though I picked more muted colors, this would also be fun with bright neons. Here is the finished product:

|In my stack (no flash)|
How to do it:
*Carefully paint over each individual stone in a single stroke (You can also go around the edges, like I did to give it some added dimension).
*Let the first coat dry completely before adding a second coat.
*Allow the 2nd coat to dry before adding a clear topcoat. This helps protect it from chipping (just like your nails). If you don't want the shine, try a matte topcoat instead.
*Make sure to use a creme polish that covers well - sheer & perle colors will not be as effective.
