DIY Acid Wash Denim Nails
It's been a while since I've uploaded a nail design so here is my latest creation! I figured out how to do this acid wash tie-dye effect when I was removing a few layers of nail polish the other day. I realised how easy it was to create such a unique effect and I chose blues to match my latest Tie Dye Jeans. It looks really striking and can be achieved with a whole range of colours. If you follow me on Instagram (thisfashionismine) you may have spotted a sneak preview of these already!
All you need is two nail polishes, a pale one to begin with and a dark one on top. I'm using Barry M's Pale Blue and Navy. You also need nail varnish remover and a cotton ball or pad.
And there you have it! Four simple steps to achieve this DIY Nail Design. Don't worry about each nail being perfect this style requires a random mottled effect on each nail. Just be careful with your remover, you only need to add a little amount to the cotton ball and stroke it gently over each nail. You can always take away more polish here and there where it's necessary. Be sure to let each layer of polish completely dry.
I'm going to give this a go with two clashing colours like bright pink and turquoise!
