Paint solid yellow on your thumb and ring finger.  Solid blue on all the others.  Let it dry.

Using nail art striping tape (I bought mine at the bornprettystore.com)  Section your yellow nails into 3 parts (depending on the length)
Using a striping brush paint 4 diagonal lines & alternating directions.

Fill in your diagonal lines with solid white.

Step 4
Carefully remove the nail art tape and apply 1 coat of your favorite clear top coat!

Blue Nail Design
1. Using the striping brush create diagonal lines varying in thickness.  Uneven lines are perfect so to mimic the pattern in the bikini top.
2. Using your dotting tool after the black has dried take your blue polish and apply dots to the thickest lines.
3. Follow it up with your favorite Quick Dry Top Coat
