Turquoise Acetone Wash Nails

28 Jan

Another acetone wash?  Yes!  I’ve been wanting to do this combination for a while.  I know it’s not technically the color of a turquoise stone, but isn’t that what it looks like?  I love it!

With my past acetone washes, I’ve used non-acetone polish remover.  This time, just to see what would happen, I tried acetone polish remover and 100% pure acetone.  Pure acetone eats through a little too fast, but is good for going in with a brush to get some fine lines.  Non-acetone just takes too long.  My pick is an acetone based remover.  You just have to take care not to rub through all the layers of polish.

For this design I used 2 coats of Color Club Nouveau Vintage then layered 2 coats of China Glaze For Audrey on top.  Once it had had some time to dry, I went to work.  I topped it off with Jordana Quick Shine top coat.  I seriously heart this mani.  I think these colors are fabulous together.

    Oh my goodness!!! I subscribe to Paint My Nails at Midnight, and I found your blog because she did a mani based on your post here. So, of course, I came over to your “house”, and I’ve been browsing and drooling to my heart’s content!

    Of all the awesomeness you have at your blog, I think that this is my favorite. I am still a novice, but one day I will attempt this and wear some jewelry I own that will complement it exactly!

    Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂 I am loving your blog!
