Basically it's a way of getting some really cool watercolor- like art onto your nails with really minimal effort! So here we go:
Cover your nail in a coat or two of your base color. This is NYC East Village which is a very opalescent blue/green. Loved it but it needs three or more coats to wipe out the VNL(visible nail line). However, since I was adding more polish it didn't matter :)
Add top coat of choice- I used Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat
Take a strip of plastic wrap and bunch it up til it looks like this and paint a little of your first color right onto the plastic. Using another surface (like a paper plate) dab a little paint off, and then dab directly onto your nails. Repeat with each color until you achieve the desired effect.
Repeat your top coat. Et Voila!
Colors I used were:
NYC East Village
Milani Sail Away which is navy with silver foil and is gorgeous!
Wet n' Wild Deadly Dose- a lighter gold metallic
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls which is the off-white perfection :)
Are you going to give this trend a try? You will be pleased with the result I promise!
