  3. Use a toothpick to add blue detail across the grey and white sections. Use a new toothpick and grey polish to draw two thin lines down the side of the white section.

  4. Add a dot of red polish and a dot of black polish to R2-D2’s face. Finish with a top coat

  5. For your other nails, apply basecoat. Paint non accent nails a bright blue. Place some loose white glitter on a piece of wax paper

  6. Paint a thin strip of clear polish down the middle of your nail

  7. Dip the end of a toothpick in water. Pick up the glitter one piece at a time and place down the middle of the nail. Repeat process on each side until nail is covered.

  8. Lock the glitter pieces in place with a brush of top coat.
