Dry Brush Nail Art with KBShimmer!

Press Samples

Good evening, readers! I haven't had a chance to show you this mani yet, but I wore it a few weekends ago. I used the grunge/dry brush technique as shown in one of my favorite tutorials by Chalkboard Nails. To switch it up a bit, I did the brush strokes from cuticle to tip and from side to side. I used all KBShimmer creme polishes for this look. There were so many colors used that no nail was the same while using this technique and I love it! It almost has the look of fabric.

  •  I started out with two coats of KBShimmer How You Dune?
  • Then, wiping almost everything off of the brush, I gently dragged the brushes across the nails following the tutorial linked above using the following KBShimmers: Low And Be Bold, Honeydew List, Hugs And Wishes, Radiant Orchid, Let's Not Coral, and You're So Shellfish.
  • I topped it off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

What do you think of this look? I can see myself wearing this over and over in different color combos! Thanks so much for reading!

  1. So cool! I love the dry-brush technique because of the different abstract results!

  2. I love how this looks with the side to side brushing, too! So cute!

  3. Those colors are amazing together! I have got to try this!
