Our Ops Team is basically the coolest group of girls around. Each and every day, they inspire the rest of the staff with their positive attitudes—and their superb sense of style. I consistently turn to various members of their team for tips, and at a meeting yesterday, Whitney’s nails caught my eye.

It was obvious at first glance that her superb nail art had to be shared with the rest of the beauty world. So post-meeting, I snapped these pics and asked her to share the step-by-step process.
Step 1: Apply a base coat of Butter London’s new Trout Pout and wait for it to dry completely.
Step 2: Get out some toothpicks and put dabs of your various colors on a Post-it.
Step 3: Take one toothpick and make the center of the flower using Orly’s Iron Butterfly. Take a different toothpick, dip it into China Glaze’s new Sunshine Pop, and create the petals by pulling them out from the center. Take a third toothpick and use China Glaze’s Gaga for Green to draw the stem.
Step 4: Use the toothpicks to add polka dots to the rest of your nails.
