GOT Polish Challenge - DIstressed Blue

Hello everyone! We're already on to the third week of the GOT polish challenge and the theme for this week is blue! I'm lucky that blue is one of my favourite polish colours so I have some going way back into my polish stash! I also needed to find a design that wasn't going to take too long but wanted to try something new, so I had a quick look through my inspiration boards and decided to have a go at Chalkboard Nails' Distressed look (click here for the tutorial). I didn't work from the tutorial but followed the basic instructions of using nearly dry polish brushes to create the distressed effect.

I started with three coats of Ciate Power Dressing and waited for that to dry. Then I used wiped brushes of Models Own Feeling Blue and Color Club Take Me To Your Chateau to create the distressed effect. I topped with Seche Vite to finish.

I am definitely going to do this look again! The technique is so simple and the options with regard to colour and coverage mean that it is so versatile! I'll be back with a "dotty" GOT Mani for you next Thursday, and in the meantime, check out all the other fabulous blue manis using the links below :)
