More Distressed Nails!

Hi guys! I loved doing the distressed manicure I showed you 2 weeks ago. It was so fun and easy to do, and you guys seemed to like it too! So I thought I would try again :D This time I went for a pink mix with 4 polishes.

 Let's check it out!
For this manicure I used a pink (China glaze - Dance baby), orange (Essence - Get the fever), purple (Zoya - Mira) and berry (Zoya - Stacy) polish. I did exactly the same as last time, starting with a white base (OPI - Alpine snow) and wiping most of the polish from the brushes. After the 4 colors had dried I went over them with black (Wet n wild - Black creme) and sealed everything with topcoat (Poshé).

I like how this combination of colors turned out, but I think I could have done it a bit neater. I forgot to wrap my tips in black and I left a bit too much white around the edges for my taste. But that's ok, practise makes perfect!  I hope you guys like it, and see you next week!
