1. Paint your nails a base color.
2. Using a small nail art striping brush, make five thin lines in the places where you want the starfish arms to be.
3. Connect the outer points of the arms with wide, draping lines.
4. Fill in the body of the starfish.
5. Add small dots in a contrasting color to represent the starfishes’ bumpy skin. I used the same small striper brush for this part, to make the dots extra small.
6. Topcoat once the design is completely dry!
