Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today I have some watercolour nails to show you. I saw a tutorial by Spektor's Nails recently and I decided I needed to try it out myself. I was very pleased with the outcome and it was so easy! I was having lighting issues with my photos so they are a bit yellowy and dark :( so apologies for that. But you can still get the idea of what they looked like.
For these I painted my nails with a white base.
Once the base was dry I blobbed on a thick layer of white leaving a few gaps. In the gaps I added blobs of Sally Hansen - Fairy Teal.
To get the water colour effect I pressed a square of sandwich bag on top of the wet polish which mixed all the colours together (if that makes any sense).
To finish I cleaned up around the edges and added a top coat. If my explanation made no sense check out Spektor's Nails' post as she has a video on there (link at the top of the post).
I tried it on the other hand with pink! (Barry M - Dragonfruit). This photo was taken on my phone, for some reason the lighting looked a lot better.
I really did love these, they were so much easier than I expected.
Have any of you tried this technique? How did you find it?
Thanks for stopping by!
