Step Three;
Make sure the polish caps are unscrewed. In the cup of warm water, put one drop of nail polish. The polish should spread out a lot. If it does not try a different color. Good quality polish works best, I used Sephora and Essie. Put in drops alternating colors.

Step Four;
Quickly take a toothpick and make a swirling design.
