Step 1: Paint a clear base coat on your nails so we can protect our nails and so the nail polish can last longer. Let your nails dry afterwards

First apply blue then red a bit further from the blue and mix them on the blue side to create purple. Add yellow and proceed to create orange and green with the yellow’s neighbors, blue and red
