Mani Thursdays 3: Watercolor Nails

Hi everyone!

Thursday has come again, and for this Mani Thursday I’ve decided to do watercolor nails! I used the method with acetone; the plastic-wrap method didn’t work so great for me.  Basically, you just put dots of nail polish on your nail (painted with a base coat, base color, and top coat) and use a brush wetted with acetone to make the polish watercolor-y (rebecca likes nails has a nice tutorial). A lot of people doing this tutorial used bright colors, but I prefer a more pastel, laid-back blue-green look.

I used: Sally Hansen White On (white) & Mint Sorbet (pale green); Sephora by O.P.I. Read My Palm (darker green); and Jin Soon Blue Iris (blue).

Well, that’s it for today!  What should I do for the next mani Thursday? I hope my striping tape arrives by then 🙂

Argyle Nails

Today (actually yesterday) Buddy came over and let me do her nails! I tried argyle nails with my new brushes. They came out all right, not the best, but passable (it took FOREVER though!)Image 

ImageI used: Sally Hansen White On (white) and Mint Sorbet (light green); Jin Soon Blue Iris (dark blue) and Poppy Blue (light blue); and Sephora by O.P.I. Read my Palm (dark green).

This design is pretty self-explanatory, but Cutepolish has a great tutorial on it.
