Water Color Nails Mani

Hey guys! So very excited about today's post! I just LOVE how it came out!!
I first saw Water color nails HERE at
And I was really intrigued, but it kind of fell off my radar because I am forgetful
and didn't get around to write it into my Nail notebook (where I keep ideas for future mani's, sketches etc :P)
But then I came along these three other epic water color mani's!

For those unaware of this method/technique, basically you add a color at a time (or more if you want)
by placing droplets of polish onto your base color. Then you use a nail brush that is damp with acetone and kind of swirl it around. Rebecca did a awesome picture by picture tutorial to show you in the above post :)
The result is really pretty but actually very simple!

So first I started with two coats of Zoya-Purity, a white creme. Then added a coat of Seche vite.
Once it was completely dry I started with the yellow, Finger Paints-Catwalk Queen.
After yellow I used Zoya-Shawn, my absolute favorite Zoya green & possibly green period!
The green was followed by Zoya-Cynthia & Zoya-Breezi, then another coat of topcoat when I was finished!

The bottle is wet from acetone (oops!) hehe Pictured holding Zoya-Breezi

  16. This is awesome. I've had the technique down in my "nail notebook" for a while, though I haven't gotten around to it yet (primarily because I don't have any straight acetone at the moment, and Walmart was out of it when I was there earlier this week.) This, however, is the first execution of it I've seen that doesn't come out looking pastel! GREAT JOB! I especially like it because that's a color palette I'd happily use on my own nails, and it makes me look forward to trying this even more. After Valentine's, I think, since I'm planning on doing something pink for that week. (I rarely wear pink; I think I can handle it one week out of the year. :P )

  17. First time I hear about this, thanks for sharing!!

    And those colours are gorgeous!
