Acid Wash Nails

I was just going to post more photos of my Acid Wash manicure on Facebook, but I've gotten a lot of compliments on it so far so I thought I'd blog about it as well.

I absolutely love this manicure because the technique is so easy, you get different results with each nail which is something I love, it's something which doesn't take long to do at all (way under an hour with quick dry top coat). PLUS I can definitely see myself doing this a lot in the future to cover up old manicures. Quick and simple alternative to the crackle polish, I suppose.

It's funny, when I told my boyfriend I was going to use these two polishes together in a manicure, he made a comment about the colors not really going together. Oh yeah, Mr. Artist? I showed him! ;)

In certain light, the colors almost blend together. Eva on it's own reminds me of candy, but the combination of the two really has the same effect.

So what do you think? I love these polishes, love this manicure and love this technique. I'm definitely trying it out again sometime, and soon.


  1. Thats pretty cool. I have never tried this before, I wonder why?

    1. Oh you definitely should try it out! It's so easy. I really do love this technique.
