If you like having all 10 of your fingers look like mahjong tiles, draw Chinese characters on some fingers and the pictures or patterns on mahjong tiles on your other fingers.

Sometimes, drawing such intricate nail designs can be very challenging so purchasing mahjong nail stickers to stick onto your nails works! There are many designs online to choose from too.

Use a glossy top coat for a shiny and glistening look just like what the real mahjong tiles look like.
