NOTD: Watercolor Nails!
Sorry for my absence this week, my days off were pretty hectic and I could hardly find time to paint my nails or blog for that matter! And Wednesday I chose to participate in the web-wide Blackout to protest SOPA/PIPA, both bills which could spell the end for beauty bloggers like myself and others. If you’re still confused on what these two bills are, you can find out more info and sign the petition to stop them in their tracks [HERE].
I come back offering you one of my NOTD looks from last week, watercolor nails! After seeing the great manis done by Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and Rebecca from Rebecca Likes Nails I just had to try this technique for myself! Also, why does Blogger auto load to the bottom of the page now? Annoying.
But I digress, let’s get to the pictures shall we?
Sally Hansen – White On (base color)
China Glaze – Poinsettia
Finger Paints – Curdor-Orange
Cult Nails – Feel Me Up
Sally Hansen – Thinking of Blue
At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the way my watercolor manicure had turned out. But the more I looked at it the more I ended up really liking it. Though next time I want to use brighter colors because I think the blue I used is a little overpowering.
This mani reminds me of a Monet painting, especially my ring finger! This look was relatively easy to create. Though it can be easy to eat straight through the top coat with the acetone if you linger in one spot for too long. You can view/read tutorials on how to create this look on both Sarah and Rebecca’s posts that I linked at the top of the page. ^_^
That’s it for today! I also entered this manicure into the Cult Nails Nail Art contest. You can view it on their Facebook Fan Page and vote for yours truly if the mood strikes you.
