STEP ONE: Prep nails with CLEANSE Nail Cleanser.
STEP TWO: Apply PRIME Base Coat and let it dry for two minutes.
STEP THREE: Paint two coats of Singularity, a matte-metallic lavender gray, to each nail and let dry for two minutes.
STEP FOUR: Dip a makeup sponge into a drop of Prophecy, a matte-metallic cobalt blue, and randomly dab onto nails.
STEP FIVE: Repeat step four with Spectacle, a matte-metallic raspberry, and Destiny, a shade-shifting sky blue, to create a blended effect.
STEP SIX: Paint White Matter, a paper white, from the side of the nail to the tip with a thin eyeliner brush.
STEP SEVEN: Repeat step six with a second white line, parallel to the first.
STEP EIGHT: Starting from the opposite side of the nail, repeat step seven, intersecting the two lines.
STEP NINE: With an eyeliner brush, apply topcoat over only the three white lines for a subtle sheen.
