New 31 Day Challenge: Day 15 - Watercolor

Can I just say that I am so glad that this is not "watermarble"!  I was not ready to tackle that drawn out process again..maybe just one nail! :)

I have only ever done a watercolor design once, when it was a pretty new technique.  I used polish that was too light, so the color did not show up that well.  This time, I got the polish right but I had another issue.

I started with 2 coats of Milani White on the Spot.  I also added 1 coat of HK Girl, as protection against the acetone.

For the watercoloring I used Barry M Raspberry, Blackberry and Watermelon.  It started out much better than last time, however I should have had more patience.  By going back over the same spot I ate through the polish. :(

I do think it looks cool, I just need to work on this technique.


  1. omg thats so cool! I want to try this!

  2. I love your ring finger! So delicate and pretty. I like the colours you used too

  3. I love these 31 day challenges, and it's fun to see what you come up with. I really like the colors you chose to use. I am going to have to try this as I really like the end effect, and it DOES look like watercolors. Pretty.

  4. Awww...this is so pretty. I really love what you did here with your mani. Love the color combos. Great job!

  5. Just lovely - I really like the acetone/watercolor technique. Picking the colors is so important so they don't end up turning muddy when they meet each other.

  6. This turned out so pretty! I love the soft colors.
