Acid Wash


So tonight I tried a technique called acid washing... it is relatively straight forward, you layer your choice of colors (I used 4) then you take a brush dipped in acetone and remove the colors in splotches and layers until you get the effect you want. I really like the look of this effect and really wanna try it in all neon:)!!! So for this mani I started with a base coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On”, followed by China Glaze “Pink Voltage”, and Zoya “Myrta”, and finished with Sinful Colors “Hot Spot”. Completed the look with a coat of Gelous and SV to even the dips out. I do think that the end result would have turned out better if I had waited for each layer to dry before adding the next one... Oh well there is always next time:)

  1. I like that! Did you use pure acetone or just regular polish remover?

    1. I used pure Acetone, but regular polish remover would probably work just as well:)
