Ok for those who wanted to know how to do them, here are the distructions.......... :D :D :D ........................

They are acrylic colour powders, I used EZflow Gemstone colours.(will use creative when i have done their training) 8)
I used clear tips, prepped the nails and applied the tips in the usual way.Slightly buff the clear tips the arcylic will stay on better, so I found lol
Then the fun started, selected all my favorite colours. :D
Then starting from the free edge upwards, applied the coloured powders in a random fashion, colours slightly overlapping each other.
Then lightly buffed the colours with a soft 240 file or white buffing block, this is what gives it the smudged look. Applied a layer of crystal clear Acrylic powder to seal it, shape and buffed them to a nice shine, with solar oil(oh how i love that stuff) .
Not rocket science just a play about with some sticky stuff and colours. If I can do it anyone can. I am still learning the acrylic stuff, but having a great time doing it lol

So give it a go, you will love the result.


love Ruth xxxxxx
