highspiritsss asked: how did you do that nail accent!?

Hi!  For those accent nails, I applied my base color and let it dry, then used the technique shown in this Youtube tutorial by The Polish Well to create strings of polish on my nails.  Next, I swiped topcoat horizontally on each nail a number of times to soften the strings and blend the colors together (the brush will pick up some of the color, so I suggest using an old topcoat or wiping your brush off thoroughly with a paper towel after you’re done).  To finish it off, I applied one more layer of topcoat normally to smooth everything out.

I really hope this makes sense!  If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask! :)
