A quick video on how I got the background of my graveyard nails. 👻
1. Start with a dark grey base. I used two coats of @chinaglazeofficial Black Diamond which has a bit of shimmer of it.
2. Make a mixture of white or light green acrylic paint and water. You want it to be really watery, but still have color.
3. “Wash” the paint and water mixture onto the nail. Because it’s a glossy surface, the water makes the paint kind of group together with itself so you don’t cover the entire nail.
4. When it’s dry you’ll have the smokey look. Finish with the design, or just use a matte top coat!
💡TIP: if the paint wash is covering too much of the nail, you can easily just wipe it off and adjust your paint/water mixture and try again as long as the nail polish is completely dry!
