So, so pleased with the way today's violet nails turned out. I wasn't sure if I would be able to mimic the watercolor look I had in my mind, but I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome! This manicure used a mix of a splatter technique, the watercolor technique, and freehanding.
I began by painting my nails white, and then I added a coat of quick dry topcoat to protect the base while I watercolored.
Using a palette made of tin foil and working one color at a time, I mixed the purples with acetone. I filled a larger nail art brush with the acetone and polish mixture, and then loosely dabbed it on to my nail. The final touch was to fill the brush again, and then use my finger to flick the bristles over my nail, creating a type of splatter effect.
