The stripes I attempted here are made using the “acid wash” technique. This is where you paint you nails in a bright color (or whatever your choice) as the base. Top coat that color. Add a neutral color over that. Wait until that dries. Then take a small paint/nail brush, dipped in acetone, and remove parts of the top layer of polish, showing the base color underneath.
Must add a (non-paid!!) product endorsement here. Alischia of Lacquerhead Polish sent along a cuticle oil with the polishes I will be including in the “Indies Only! Blogathon” (starting in about a week!!)
This oil not only smells YUMMMMMY it works extremely well. My cuticles have been taking a beating lately with all of the polish swatching I’ve been doing. So, I started using the oil Alischia sent me, and it is really making a fantastic difference.
