After, I peeled the stickers off I dotted on four silver dots using my doting tool. The sliver is "Silver Mercedes" from Pure Ice. After the dots dry I used one or two coats of clear coat just to protect my nails. For my thumb nail, I hand painted a design using a paint brush, and then used my dotting tool to apply more silver dots. Over all this manicure was fairly easy and I loved the way it turned out.
