Just at the right time as I was ready to do my nails, I spotted Musical House's mani photo on Instagram. After reading her blog post on the Acid washed nails, I thought I give it a go as it sounded really simple to create.
First I used China Glaze First Mate as the base colour, I applied two coats until it was opaque.
After the blue was completely dried, I used OPI Bride's Bouquet and applied one layer on top.
Then using a cotton bud, I dipped it in nail varnish remover and lightly cleaned the white polish off. You have to be patient and do it slowly and with a light hand, otherwise you will completely remove both colours. You don't want to complete remove the white, the messier the effect the better it looks.
I really want to try a multi-colour acid wash nail look next and experiment with a whole bunch of colours :D
