Tortoise Shells

Hi everyone! I have my take on a tortoise shell look today!

I started with two coats of OPI Bubble Bath, followed by one coat of SV.

Next, I used Sharpies to colors splotches all over my nail.  The colors I picked were yellow, black, brown, and grey.  After coloring the entire nail, I used a detail brush dipped in alcohol and lightly blotted it across the nail to bleed the colors.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I love the end result!  I may be a little addicted to the Sharpie technique now!!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
