When I first heard about this challenge, I knew I wanted to try this.
This is a technique called acid wash. You layer several polishes and then use a brush or q-tip to remove several layers of the polish with polish remover.
I learned a lot during this. For one, q-tips work better than a nail brush. I did my thumb, index and middle finger with a brush; ring and pinkie with a q-tip. Secondly, the polish I want to show the most should be added to the bottom coat, not the second to the last. I really wanted the blued lavender to show the most, Julep Joanna
Here's what I used, in order from bottom coat to top.
- Sally Hansen Lightening
- Models Own Edamame
- Sally Hansen White On
- Julep Joanna
- Julep Blakely
