veiled nails with Tonic Polish Caliente, Sinful Colors Diamond Blogs, Sinful Colors Out in Space, B Squared Lacquer Plur, China Glaze Liquid Leather | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I don’t know how many people have seen this veil technique but this is now the second or third time I’ve done a mani with it and it’s so fun. I first saw this through nail_muse on instagram but I saw this variation and had to try my hand at it. I tried to do an accent nail with Tonic Polish Caliente with the veil technique but I don’t think it worked. :/ (It’s come to my attention that perfect10customnails is perhaps the originator of the veil neil technique. Just gotta give credit where it is due!) Continue reading

Current mani here! I’ve been wanting to use Bolide from Turtle Tootsie Polishes since I bought it but everything I tried just didn’t click. I finally forced myself to sit down with it and come up with other complementary colors and a technique. And yes, I know you’ve seen a similar technique earlier this week. This technique was one I saw from yagala on instagram.
