Bright Watercolor

Today's design is one of those I paint out of nothing, no plan. I thought I would paint a delicate pattern of some sort, but I ended up with abstract watercolour.

Keep reading to find out how I did this!

The Process:
The base is Rimmel 703 White Hot Love, my favourite white polish.
To get the watercolour effect I thinned the acrylic paint with a lot of water so it actually worked like watercolour. I used round brush with a bit of the paint and very lightly stroked my nails in different directions. To get the colour thicker for highlights I added a bit of the thick acrylic paint to my watercolour paint.

This technique has a lot of upsides, it isn't very time consuming and it's really easy to do with your non-dominant hand.
I'm not the best when it comes to watercolour on paper, but I really enjoy it on nails. It's great, give it a try yourself!
Bye bye!


  1. I have today on my nails a watercolor design too, but it looks not as good as your I may add :) Love the bright colors you used, they together are very eye catching!
