This was an experiment that turned out well. Could have been better but as you can see I started with the pinkie and by the time I reached my thumb I think I got it right. A side note about using elmer's only use it if your not planning on keeping your polish on for more then a day or 2.
First applied elmer's
then a coat of lightest polish
after polish dried I applied the 3 coats using a makeup sponge
clear top coat
