Smoke & Flowers

Directions:

  1. Apply base coat and wait until dry.
  2. Apply two - three coats of Calypso. Wait until dry.
  3. Apply top coat to prevent acetone from smudging the base color. Wait until dry.
  4. Take Blanc and place three dots anywhere on the nail
  5. Dip your paint brush in acetone and gently press against the dots to create muddy, white puddles. Wait until the puddle evaporates to see the smoke effect.
  6. Take your purple polish and place your flower petal dots anywhere you choose. Use steps in #5 to complete the flowers. 
  7. Take a yellow or gold polish and make a dot in the middle of the petals, and use steps in #5 to finish look. 
  8. Use your favorite top coat to seal the deal! :) My go-to top coat is Sally Hansen's Instadri Top Coat.
