Using their skin tone color, draw an outline of the characters.
Outline and fill in each area with the correct base color. These will be the middle shade and the other shapes will be darker or lighter.

Start with a light color for the backgrounds. Use varying darker shades to create more shapes until the whole nail is full. I swapped the girls colors around for the backgrounds.

Seal everything with a matte topcoat and you're done!
