NOTD April 20th: Water Color Nail Art

Bonjour tout le monde!
Like I said, I want to do a little more nail art again, and for my next design I picked the Water Color Nail Art which I saw here on Chalkboardnails *click*. I really like what it looks like on her nails and decided to recreate it!
Since I didn't have any pure acetone I just went for plain nail polish remover that contains acetone, and it worked fine. What you wanna do for this mani is paint your nails a nude background color, I did 2 coats of Manhattan's 95E. Then you want to do 2 coats of topcoat. Yes, make sure you double up on top coat so the acetone/polish remover won't ruin your background! Now pour some colorful polishes onto a piece of paper, and use a nail art brush dipped into polish remover to apply little smudged dots of the polishes onto your nails. Due to the acetone they will wash out a little and blend together, which looks like water color paintings!
I really like this technique, and the result is fun, since it's rather random and not made to be perfect!
Let me tell you one thing, though: don't do this on your bed! I did, stupid as I am. I do most things on my bed, since it's so comfy, and I didn't think about what could happen. Well, silly me knocked over the little bowl containing polish remover, and it was all on my bed! That can happen when you don't think ;) The scent was really gross, but after changing my bedding right away it worked, luckily :D Be smarter than I am and do this at a table ;)
What do you think of this mani?

  1. I bet your sheets or duvet will unfortunately get damaged forever.
    I always did most of my studying on the carpet, not sitting down on a chair like most normal people.

    1. yes, it looks like that...but it's okay, it was just a normal plain white sheet, I won't miss it that much ;)
      Haha, I can also never sit down at a table ;)

  2. Wow! Cool effect! You did a good job!

  3. No topcoat? This is so cute!

    1. I think I did seal it with top coat in the end :)
      Thank you! :)
