Steps :-

  1. Apply base coat.
  2. Apply yellow nail polish as base, this NYC nail polish I used is very sheer had to use 4-5 coats for opaque color.
  3. Apply golden color on accent nail (ring finger) 
  4. Apply 2 black dots on yellow nail polish on all fingers except accent nail. One big and one small dot, as shown in picture . After it dries add golden dot on top of black dot as shown.
  5. On accent nail / ring finger draw three rows of dots as shown. You can use doting tool or just booby pin like I used. After black dots are dry completely add small yellow dots on top of them. You have to apply at least twice as yellow is very sheer, if your nail polish is not that sheer once will be enough.
  6. Let it dry completely, and apply top coat to secure manicure.
