Water Colour Elephants

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today?I'm gearing up for some big changes here on the blog! Make under!

This manicure was made the last time I was back home in England visiting family - look how long my posts get delayed for various reasons, haha!

Today's nail art is something I've had floating in my head for a while in various forms. I didn't quite know how I wanted it to be...but it had to have rainbows. Hi Autumn, I'm wearing Summer! Anyway, these nails are seriously simple. I do think though...it looks like the elephants are making a journey to find water, so is it cruel I used the water colour technique?

For this manicure I used Barry M's White and created a water colour effect using acrylic paint. I really enjoy doing this kind of nail art, its messy but fun! Next I created some very simple elephant shapes (I was in no mood for some real serious detail but I also thought it would fit the manicure better) Next I sealed it all together with Catrice's gel effect top coat.

What do you think of my rainbow elephants? Have you done a water colour manicure before?

Have a great day!
