    You must be patient and let the first coat dry or everything will be a mess

    Seche Vite is your BEST friend for things like this! Also, don’t paint all the way down to your cuticles, stop just before you get to them and it will look much more professional, I promise. 🙂

    I can see where you’ve gone wrong with this – you want to do the white on the ring finger first – then the heart, and then the blue stripes so it appears the stripes go behind the heart.
    Do your nails in a round, so you’re doing 1 layer on 10 fingers, then 2 layers on 10 fingers so your nails have time to dry 🙂 Thin layers as well!
    Have to agree with Rochelle that Seche Vite is any nail art girl’s best mate!
