Distressed Nails

21 Feb

There’s a few techniques I’ve been wanting to try out for a while, and this distressed technique from Chalkboard Nails is one of them.  I finally got round to trying it! It’s really simple and a very forgiving technique!!  I left the gold polish until last as I figured it was the lightest but it totally swamped the rest of the design, but it was so easily recoverable by just going back over with a couple of the other colours.

What do you think?  I’m looking forward to playing around with this technique and different colours!

Polishes used:

  • w7 – Sunstone
  • Barry M – Navy
  • Barry M – Guava
  • Nails Inc – Lanesborough Place
