Acid Wash










































barry m: matte white & bright purple

A while back Vicky posted her acid wash nails here, and I've wanted to do it to ever since- basically you paint your nails one colour, then go over it with another once that's dry. Then, with a cotton bud and nail polish remover you rub off sections of the top layer. This design definitely looks better in real life, didn't get a chance to photograph these in the daylight to show them off properly but I'm sure I'll do them again. I'll try and get a picture of my new tattoo soon, I'm so happy with it even if my right leg is currently at least 2 dress sizes bigger than the other because of the swelling aha.

  12. Such a cool idea, I'm a sucker for nail art although I'm sure it would look horrible on me! I love the berry colours you chose <3
