Start off with a base coat, I used Nicole by OPI’s “3-in-1 Base, Top Coat & Strengthener.”

IMG_2128.JPGChoose a color that you want your camouflage pattern to be, I went with the classic green so I applied a medium shade of green polish. I used a Sally Girl mini nail polish that I don’t have the name for.

Then with a sandy green color (or a color that goes along with your chosen color) apply uneven lines coming from the sides using the nail polish brush. This is a little hard to explain in words but hopefully the pictures will help. I used MAC’s “Before Dawn.”

Repeat this step with a tan/beige color and a dark green (or with colors that go along with your color scheme). I used Revlon’s “Elegant” for the tan/beige color and Apple Barrel’s “Christmas Green” acrylic paint and applied it with a thick MASH brush.

Then, go back with any of those colors, using the same technique, if needed.

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Nicole by OPI’s “High Shine Top Coat+”. I actually think this design would look better with a matte top coat so I will apply one later using OPI’s “Matte Top Coat”. It is better to apply a glossy top coat, let it dry, and then apply a matte top coat.
