A is for....

Hi guys! As I mentioned before I am taking part in the ABC challenge hosted by Kimbers Lacquer Korner. Todays letter is A. I chose to use Zoyas Aurora from the Ornate Collection.  I love this shade of purple. It is absolutely gorgeous.

I have a bit of a nail fail to show you guys today. When I first saw this challenge the first thing I thought of for the letter "A" was Acid Wash Nails. There is a great tutorial Here. So I'm looking at this tutorial and I say to myself this looks super easy. Paint a layer of blue, let it dry, paint a layer of white, let it dry then take a Q-tip soaked in acetone and lightly rub the white off until you get the look you are going for. SIMPLE right? Welllllll here's what I got.

*Sigh* I don't know what happened!  It definitely wasn't what I was going for.  I'll have to redo this one in the future. Until then me and Acid Wash are on a break from each other. ;)

I've got an idea for "B" next week. Hope it goes a bit smoother than "A"!!

  1. Zoya Aurora is gorgeous! And such a shame for the Acid Wash, can't it be done with the saran wrap method instead?

    1. You know I didn't even consider using saran wrap. That's a great idea! Thanks!

  2. Zoya makes such gorgeous polishes :)

    Come and join our challenge FB group if you want :)

  3. I really need to get Aurora! Blaze and Storm are on my wish list too! Zoya did a good job with these ones!
