Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? Are you ready for the weekend? What fun things do you have planned? I'm looking forward to my phone call night – Fridays are my weekly catch up night with my sister which is always nice. I think I'll be having a swatchy-kind of weekend too so I have plenty of posts to share with you once I am in England! Today I have a water colour manicure to show you. I was actually inspired by HGNailDesign so please be sure to check out her blog, she has a wonderful tutorial for 'Bokeh' nail art. This was my first time using watered down acrylics and I really loved the out come!
On all my nails I began with two coats of Barry M's 'Pearl' (My favourite white with a silk finish)
Once this was dry I began to dab on some very watery acrylic paint with a cotton bud. I then used a wet cotton bud to go back over the colour which left a very pretty whimsical coloured pattern. I then decided I need more! More, more, more! I added a half border to my nails with black and added some dots and alternated with purple and aqua gems. I finished it all off with a top coat.
What do you think of this manicure? Have you tried the water colour technique before?
Have a fantastic weekend, my friends!
