Thanks to a BH comp where you submit a chosen colour scheme each week, I thought I'd try this new design for the orange and red theme.
I decided to use orange for my base colour, Models Prefer "Trendy" is such a lovely shade. My fingers look oily, that is because I slathered them in Vaseline, to make it easier to remove the nail polish from my skin. Keep reading and you'll see why )
Using a cup of water, I then used my red of choice, Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine "Dazzling", and allowed drops of polish to cover the water's surface.
I then sprayed perfume above the polish.
Spraying an alcohol based product separates the polish, putting holes in it. The hair spray that I used didn't work for me, but the perfume seemed to do the trick.
It is a rather messy technique, tape around the nails is a great way to prevent a lot of polish transfer on the fingers.
