2. Create horizontal, imperfect stripes. "Using a paint or striper brush — you can get either one at any art store — create horizontal, crooked and straight mini lines up the center of your nail, leaving space in between each," she explained. Model India Jewel Jackson used Ciaté's lavender polish called Spinning Teacup.
3. Now use a pink polish to make mini dashes. Remember to be haphazard in the way you draw them on — they're not supposed to look perfect. India used Ciaté's Suncatcher bright pink Raspberry Collins here.
4. Swipe on some more stripes with dark purple. India used Ciaté's Talent Scout, the deep purple shown above.
5. Keep drawing tiny lines with a kelly green polish. Here, India painted on Ciaté's Palm Tree polish.
6. Outline the sides of your nail in purple. "Use the brush that comes with the polish to create the lines that run along the multicolored center stripes," Whitehill said. "The center craziness reminded me of the girls walking the runway and the purple represented the audience — that was my inspiration for the Emerson show."
7. Clean off your striper or paint brush and use it to perfect the sides. "You're not a pro, so your side lines might be wobbly," she added. "Take your tiny-tipped striper or paint brush and clean up any squiggly lines you might want to straighten up along the sides of the multicolored polish."
8. Werk this wicked look. Apply a top coat and you're good to go.
