Decided to get all floral for Easter week (or octave, technically) so I bought a couple of acrylic paints and drew on watercolour flowers onto my nails. This is the 1st time I’m trying this out and I’m quite pleased with the results. I need more paintbrushes though and I do need to thin the paint down a little more.
A lot of YouTube tutorial videos recommend using a brush to soak up the excess water so as to get that watercolour effect. I’ve found that using a cottonbud gives you the same effect AND you need not resoak your brush into paint for the next flower.
I did my highlight nails in 1 coat of Ciate’s Peppermint followed by 1 coat of OPI’s What’s With The Cattitude. Why did I do this? Well…I wanted to get a Tiffany blue. Anyway, back to the whole nail design. I’m really happy with it and I will get a tinge of sadness next week when it’s time to do another design. Nonetheless, it’s always fun to have several designs so do stay tuned!
