Dry Brush Technique & Video Tutorial

I seen @SpilledMilkNails doing a dry brush manicure on Instagram earlier this week and I just fell in love with the colours she used.  It was gold and very rustic looking, so I decided to recreate it, with a video tutorial for you guys.

Polishes Used:
Models Own - Bronze Rage (Pictured)
Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
nails inc - Chelsea Bridge Road
OPI - All Sparkly And Gold
OPI - PURE 18K White Gold And Silver Top Coat
Revlon - Really Rosy
nails inc - George Street
nails inc - Mulberry Walk
Seche Vite

I started off by painting my index, middle and pinkie fingers with Snow Me White and my ring finger I painted with Chelsea Bridge Road.  Once the Snow Me White was completely dry, I wiped the excess polish of Bronze Rage onto a cotton pad so there was little to none left on the brush.

Next, I started added random strokes to my nail in all different directions.

I did the exact same thing, wiping the excess polish onto a cotton pad then adding random strokes to my nail with each polish in the following order: George Street, Really Rosy and Mulberry Walk.  I finished off with a final coat of Bronze Rage. 

Once everything was dry, I added a coat of 18K Pure White And Silver Top Coat - which is little pieces of solid gold and attached a stud to the top of my nail.

To finish off my ring finger, I added a coat of All Sparkly And Gold and a final coat of 18K White Gold And Silver Top Coat.  All nails were then topped off with Seche Vite.

Be sure to watch my 15 second video tutorial below, but remember these clips are made for Instagram - so be sure to check me out on there to see them at their best.  You can find my Instagram account by clicking here.
