Layering #2

Okay, So I had to try the layering technique again! But this time I used black and vibrant colors. I did this design the exact same way as the one using fall colors. I'm not sure if I like this color combination better than the design with fall colors. What do you think? I think they are both different in their own way.
I did learn one thing from trying this technique another time. When picking the order to paint your polishes, make sure the colors do not look similar. I paired them going yellow, blue, orange, pink, green, purple and black. If I had painted yellow and orange or pink and purple close together the colors would have not popped as much. Of course you can pair them however, you want but this is how I think it looks best.

Colors I Used:
All Nails in order: "Fierce N' Tangy" from Maybelline, "Blue Collar" from ORLY, "Sun Worshiper" from China Glaze, "Flirt Alert" from Pure Ice, "Neon Green" from Kleancolor, "Dream" from Sinful Colors and "Black Leather" from Sally Hansen

This is the picture that gave me inspiration for the layering technique.

Layering Technique

I saw an awesome nail design technique on pinterest and I thought I would give it a whirl. Here is the technique.

The way you do this technique is to layer the nail polish in thick coats. You can layer them dark to light or light to dark that choice is up to you. Once the polish is completely dry, you take a paint brush socked in acetone and slowly remove some of the layers of nail polish reveling the different layers. Just make sure you don't go all the way to your natural nail because then you will have to fix it. Over all this is a super easy design. The technique I saw on pinterest used black and vibrant color polishes, but I'm still addicted to all fall colors. So of course I went with oranges, reds, yellows and browns. Over all I thought this technique was really neat. I think it would look better with bright colors and black but I still like the fall colors.

Colors I Used: (in order I painted them)
Index, Middle and Pinkie: "Lemon Fizz" from China Glaze, "Sunny Side Up" from Wet N' Wild, "350 Big Night Out" from Rimmel, and "228 Chelsea" from NYC
Thumb and Ring: "Lemon Fizz" from China Glaze, "Sunny Side Up" from Wet N' Wild, "350 Big Night Out" from Rimmel, "228 Chelsea" from NYC and "Hot for Chocolate"  from Revlon

What do you think of this technique??
