Watercolor Technique



To do this, I started out with a 2 coats of Revlon Guava and 2 coats of top coat.  Then I took the other colors I used (ask if interested) and put them on a plastic bag in their own designated area.  I then filled the cap of my acetone nail polish remover about half way.  I took a small dollop of the first color that I wanted to use and then dipped the nail art brush into the acetone to water the polish down. I made random splotches all over the nail.  I wasn't happy with how distinct each color looked so I then dipped the brush in acetone and just worked on each nail until I was happy with how it turned out.  You want to be careful because too much acetone and you get to your base color.  You can see that happened on a few nails but it wasn't so bad that it ruined the look.
