On another note, I have a fun new technique on display today. I have been trying to find the best way to do a tie dye type nail recently and I stumbled across this tutorial from Copy That Copy Cat - she has fantastic nail art!
The trick, as she notes, is to use a jelly polish as your colored layer. Once both layers are dry you rub a Q-tip across the nail to take off just the top layer and smudge the edges a bit. The tough part is not to take the white off as well. I found this a little time-consuming but if you do it slowly and take your time it really comes out cool!
I used Wet N Wild French White Creme for the base and then I made Nyx Sepia into a jelly by mixing it half and half with a clear polish. It came out surprisingly well! My accent nail is Essie Camera (you know I am addicted to this polish...)
I like it! I am glad I finally realized I can make my own jelly polishes from cremes I have in my collection. Jellies are more versatile I think and I don't mind that you need extra coats.
What do you think of the tie dye nails? Have you tried any other type of "tie dye" technique like dry marbling? (Next on my list...)
