Nails of the Week #75: Distressed Nails

Remember that nail art inspiration post I made awhile ago? Well I finally go around to trying out one of the looks and I must say they results are delightfully artistic. Actually I really surprised myself with how well it turned out. I followed this tutorial from Chalkboard Nails to get these really easy distressed nails. Like it's really easy and quick to the point where I need to come up with some more color combinations and do this all the time. It took no time at all to do and drying time was 5 seconds, I swear, so there's really no excuses here.

The basics of this manicure is to get your nail brush basically dry by scraping the polish off in the bottle and then using easy pressure to make quick strokes across your nail for the streaky effect. There are some places where I definitely didn't get enough of the color off but overall the effect works and I'm satisfied with it. Here are the colors I used: Essie in Private Weekend (white), Essie in Bikini So Teeny (blue), Essie in First Timer (green), Essie in In Stitches (pink), and Rimmel London in Black Satin.
