I had the idea for this nail art one day when I was removing some neon polish, as I had a white layer under the neon and as I removed it you could see both layers and I thought it looked really cool....and then I forgot about it.
I remembered it though a few weeks later and quickly drew it into my new nail art folder/sketchbook thing (I'll show it you when I've got a few more ideas down!) which I got the idea for from @attitudenails on instagram :). I finally did the nail art after my birthday using one of the polishes my bestie got me :) - Rimmel Sun Downer which is a gorgeous red orange, two coats and it was glossy and smooth :O.
I did two coats of sun downer and then a coat of topcoat, then when that dried I did a quick layer of white and then a layer of SpaRituals Dreamsicle...as you can imagine all those layers took a while to dry but this is the easiest nail art I've done recently so it was quite nice to just sit around and wait for my nails to dry as once they were dry it literally took 5 minutes to achieve the look on both hands haha!

All I did was did a cotton bud (q-tip) into nail polish remover and then I just made like I was removing my polish but in a more precise way and voilà jagged, edgy nail art was born :p.
I chose not to topcoat as I thought it would make it look too, well, glossy :p when this look is about looking undone and grungy :).
I was influenced by my phone case too I think, I mean look at it!! £20 and it's just wearing away....but to be fair I do like how it looks haha
The weird thing is that my favourite blogger Lizzy recently posted a very similar look but she used a different method, great minds think alike eh ;) you can see her wonderful creation here :D
I'm moving back to uni this weekend woohooooo but don't fear I have a couple of posts written and scheduled :O I know I'm actually organised for once in my life :P!
I'd love to know where you get nailspiration from, the weirder the better ;)
