App Inspired Nails - Tutorial.

1. Start with a base coat.

2. Then, paint all your nails white. This causes the other colors to show up brighter.

3. Paint your forefinger a light blue.

4. Paint your middle finger and thumb green.

5. Paint your ring finger orange.

Base colors all done.

6. Now for the design. Draw a white rhombus on your forefinger. Sorry, I have no picture because I just realized the picture is blurry.

7. Next, paint an 'S' in light blue. This is the finished 'Skype' app nail.

8. Next we will do the 'Phone' app nail. Pain the shape of a phone on your thumb. Simplest way to do so - first paint a short diagonal line. Then, draw two squares on either end.

9. Paint a red dot on the top right corner of your thumb.

10. Draw the number "1" in the center of the red circle. (Forgot to take a picture of it - sorry.) This is the finished 'Phone' app nail.

11. Make a large oval on your middle finger. Draw little line from the bottom left side, pointing left.

12. Red dot and the number '1'. This is the finished 'Messages' app nail.

13. Draw an ipod on your ring finger.
- Draw the outline of a rectangle.
- Draw a smaller rectangle inside it, at the top.
- Draw the outline of a circle below that.
- Fill in the gaps, leaving the circle and small rectangle orange.
- Make a smaller white circle inside the orange circle.
This is the finished ipod nail!

14. Paint the top bit of your pinky nail red. Paint only 1/3 red, not half.

15. Write 'Mon' on the red area in white, and write the number '5' on the white area in black. This is the finished 'Calender' app nail. (I'm sorry it's so blurry. My camera was refusing to focus!)

16. Add a top coat to protect your nail design from chipping and to add a glossy shine, and you're all done!

Here are the finished nails:
