I painted my nails with a pale base colour, and then followed the instructions.
I chose the 2 Avon shades because I love green and purple together and I thought it would be good to see how well they merged. I love both these shades although I would rarely wear them alone, they are great as a base for indies, or underneath a glitter, excellent quality, good coverage with 2 coats and they dry well. I've had these for years, way before my nail varnish interest really started but they are still an important part of my collection. I will admit, I did chose my Avons as they are older and less precious than some of my other brands, as I feared this was going to be a real waste of polish!
I have to say, the instructions on the tutorial are great. I was very impressed with how this mani turned out, but clean up took forever! I did take the precaution of painting my fingers with PVA glue, but I don't think I used enough as it did not peel off easily.
Anyway, here is the finished result. I think for a first attempt, I am very proud of this! I do think the colours go well together, and I am truly amazed at what can be achieved with a couple of polishes and a bit of sponge. I will certainly be trying this again!
