The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Wallpaper - Old Wallpaper

For my second NCC Wallpaper design I decided to go with something vintage.  I was thinking old, ruined vintage wallpaper.  I think I ended up with just old! 

I started with How You Dune?.  I knew that I was going to distress my wallpaper so this was going to be my plaster. 

I added a coat of What Wizardry Is This?.  

Next, I used the Saran Wrap technique with Emotions.

I used Black Swift to add an image from MoYou London Fashionista 07.  It is very hard to see but I promise it is there!
Then the distressing began!  I used a nail art brush and acetone.

I realize that this looks more like holes dug in the ground but I'm standing behind it!  Think crazy old, broke down house!  


  1. It looks like a burned house. Kind of creepy! :)

  2. I'm thinking it looks like charred planks on an old wooden house!

  3. I would have never thought to do something like this. Its so different and it looks realistic too. Almost like burnt old wallpaper.

  4. Love the creativity in this manicure! I'm thinking house that had a little fire accident :)
