A Wash!

Hi All!

How is every ones weekend going! Mine so busy in fact should be working to finish a project! I couldn't help myself!

Have you ever used a dry erase board? I you have you know how sometimes when you erase the marker doesn't always wipe away! Well that where my head was with this mani!

I used NYC - French White Tip For my base. Then acrylic for the rest. I then with black just drew messy lines.  Then with Witch Hazel (because it not as strong as alcohol) and wiped the black away till I like the look. How fast it removes really depend on the color used. But I wanted the smudged faded look but still kept the shape. Then I did a purple acrylic (messy lines) let it dry and wiped it away then a blue. I took the same purple I used and added a french tip to each nail to class it up! 
I really loved how this turned out! It is really more defines and detailed then what it look like with just the eye! Got to love magnification! But it has more of smudge blurry look to the eye. I love it ! But what do you guy's think?
