Antique Nails

Today I have a nail technique that is very simple and pretty neat. I originally saw is on Chelsea's Get Nailed, and I recreated it during my 31 Day Challenge Metallic Nails. Although at the time of the challenge I had already done these. The look is antique nails. When I think of antique nails I picture old worn wallpaper.
For this manicure you first start with a base color. Then you take another color, I think metallic polish looks best, and try to get as much polish off of the brush as possible. With whats remaining, roughly paint your nails. 
On my right hand the base is China Glaze Purr-Fect Plum, with Essie Good As Gold on top. My left hand is Essie Go Overboard with Xtreme Wear Pink Satin.
