Grunge Nails | Twinsie Tuesday

« This post contains affiliate links »

Happy Tuesday, loves! I can't believe it's already March! I feel like every year passes more quickly than the last!

For this week's Twinsie Tuesday posts we were to create grunge nails. I thought this was exciting because I've been wanting to try the dry brush technique where you paint the polish on in small strokes with barely any polish on the brush. This was the perfect opportunity to try this out!


I started out with a white base coat, applied little strokes of Lime Crime's Lavendairy, Parfait Day, Peaches ♥ Cream, and Once In A Blue Mouse, and then topped everything with strokes of Nars' Back Room. The colors became very faint after applying the black, but I guess it gives it more of that grunge look. What do you think?

Please visit the lovely Twinsie Tuesday ladies to see their grunge creations:
