Once again this nail challenge is pushing me to try a new technique and this time it’s watercolour nails! I was a little bit scared at first (as always!), but after seeing a couple of picture and watching a few videos, I was ready!
I started off with three coats of my new favourite white polish, OPI-My Boyfriend Scales Walls (how could I not have owned this before??). I then dabbed on two small drops of China Glaze-Too Yacht to Handle and diluted it with acetone. I did the same thing with China Glaze-Beauty Within and F21 Love & Beauty – Blue until the watercolour effect was complete. I found three colours to be the perfect balance. A helpful tip is to apply topcoat right after your base colour as you do not want the acetone to start dissolving your base colour! The extra layer of topcoat gives you a bit of cushion in case you go crazy with the acetone!
This is my favourite new technique so far and is perfect for spring! Be sure to check out the other wonderful ladies also participating in this challenge!
