Hello lovelies! Happy Monday? Has anyone figured out if you can actually have a happy Monday yet? All I know is that I’m exhausted and this week is going to be a rough one haha. Anyways! Nail polish. This past Friday, the Nail Crazies Unite posted their watercolor inspired nails. I’m a little behind on sharing mine, but I have them ready for you now!

Here is what I used:

Also, my nails are just downright nubby at the moment and I am so not happy about it. I somehow managed to give myself a pretty bad break on my index finger in my sleep. I’m really sure how I did it, but yeah it happened, so bear with me while my nails grow back. But moving on! This nail art was inspired by this painting created by Amanda Michele.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Did You Ear About Van Gogh?
  2. Then apply liquid latex all around your nails.
  3. Water down Brick SidewalkMallory and Darcy with some acetone and dab it on with a fluffy brush.
  4. Peel off the latex / clean up.
  5. Add a layer of Always over top.
  6. When the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  7. Clean up again if necessary.
  8. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam (not pictured.)

And that’s a wrap! It’s been a while since I’ve broken out the watercolor technique, and I completely forgot how much I love it. The colors used here mixed together a bit oddly, but I’m still digging it! This look will be one that I have to remember to recreate when my nails get longer, because I hate my nubs. But, make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!
