Peach Dry Brush Nail Art & Tutorial

Hey Y'all!!  Well here we go, Spring in Georgia!  77 degrees yesterday, 65 and windy today, 28 tomorrow night.  It's amazing we don't all have pneumonia!  But, I'm ignoring the weather again and have another Spring mani for you using the dry brush technique:
I Used:
Barielle- Pillow Talk (nude, pink leaning crème)
Sinful Colors- Cream Soda (pastel peach crème)
Sinful Colors- Sunburnt (bright peach/salmon crème)
Zoya- Dhara (orange glass fleck textured polish)

To start this mani, paint your nails with two coats of the lightest color, in this case, Barielle Pillow Talk:
Then you're going to use each color, going from lightest to darkest, the same way.  I used Sinful Colors Cream Soda first.  Using the brush that came with the polish, scrape off as much as the polish as you can.  You want the brush as dry as possible (he he, hence the name).  Be careful of all the polish between the brush and the cap dripping down.  Then, starting at the tip of your nail, brush towards the cuticle:
Be sure to go only 3/4 of the way.  Just lift the brush as you go.  Then use the next color.  In this case, Sinful Colors Sunburnt.  This time going only 1/2 the way up the nail.
Then use the last color, Zoya Dhara, only going 1/4 of the way up your nail.  Use this color to wrap your nails.  And yes!  Everyone, natural and acrylic ladies, need to wrap their nails!!
Be sure to protect your work with a good top coat!!

I really love this look.  It gives your nails so much detail and interest and it's so easy to do! 

Hope y'all enjoyed today's nail art and tutorial!  Have a fabulous Wednesday and Happy Polishing!!
