Step 1 Apply Grey Nail Polish On Thumb and Ring
Apply a light grey nail polish on your thumb and ring nails. If this is your first attempt in painting your own nails, then the rule of thumb is to do the 3 strokes.
Step 2 Apply Teal Blue On The Rest Of Nails
For your index, middle and pinky nails, Paint ’em with a teal blue nail polish. Remember, you can apply two coats if necessary.
Step 3 Draw Metallic Gold Lines
Using a thin brush and a metallic gold nail polish, draw one vertical line and horizontal line on your thumb and ring nails.
Step 4 Draw Teal Blue Lines
Using the same thin brush, you outline the gold lines with a teal blue nail polish. As you can see, it brings out the metallic gold color. In case you want to try out other color combinations, you can experiment by pairing up colors to identify which one compliments the other.

Step 5 Draw Burgundy Lines
Add one vertical line and one horizontal line using a burgundy nail polish. Will you agree that the burgundy color is a perfect contrast with teal, grey, and metallic gold. It is also expected that your fingers will mess up with your nail polishes, so clean up using a flat nail art brush dipped in a nail polish remover.
Step 6 Apply fast drying top coat
Finish it off by applying a layer of fast drying top coat. A Quick dry top coat gives that smooth and shiny look of your nail polish.
And you’re all done!
See? You can pull off those straight lines with just a brush. You just have to hold your breath. *wink*
