Hey, everyone! I'm back with a new nail art in the summer nail art series. I know I started the summer nail art series and it's already monsoon. I have been so caught up with work off late that I am not being regular with my posts. But I will make sure I post time to time and have been keeping track on what's happening at Diva Likes. So today I will be sharing the Acid Wash Nail Art Tutorial. Acid wash and distressed effects have become very popular recently. If you happened to watch PK movie, you must have noticed how Anushka Sharma rocked the acid wash and distressed effect denim. I have become such a fan of this look. It looks so raw yet uber cool. So I tried the acid wash nail art and it turned out pretty well. I am sharing the same with you all!

Things Needed:
  • Dark blue nail polish.
  • White nail polish.
  • Top coat.
  • Some Q-tips.
  • Nail polish remover.


Start off by applying a coat of blue polish. Apply a top coat over it and let it dry.

Paint a layer of white polish over the blue polish. Let it dry completely before proceeding.

Dip a Q-tip in nail polish remover and lightly rub away the white polish. Rub it lightly without any pressure otherwise the blue polish will be removed.

Keep rubbing off until you get the acid washed look.

Finish off by applying a layer of top coat. Your cool and chick acid wash nails are ready.

Sport it along with a tee, distressed denim and a pair of flip flops. Rock your way through the next pool party by sporting this acid wash nail art look.
