Twinsie Tuesday: Grunge Nails

Hi there! This week's Twinsie theme is "grunge nails".  For my manicure, I layered polishes (Zoya Hudson (purple) & Cole (peach) on sections of each nail, then I topped everything with black (OPI Onyx). Then taking a small brush dipped in acetone, I gently brushed off bits of the black polish to reveal the colors underneath. Here's what I ended up with:

I will try this again with brighter "undies" next time I think!  Overall, I think it's a pretty cool look. Be sure to check out the other 'Twinsies' grunge nails!

  1. This is nice! I think a couple of nail studs could totally pull it altogether and make it look like a distressed jacket or something.
