Nails of the Week – Day Dream… Watercolor Nails

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I haven’t done much nail art in what seems like forever… and even if I did do nail art before, what I can do is pretty limited to a small amount of creativity. lol  Watercolor nails are fun to do and a technique I have always loved.  Yesterday while getting ready to paint my nails, I was stumped as to what nail polish I wanted to choose… so I ended up choosing them all.  Now – I’m not “nail art” designer… and I’m constantly learning new techniques if I have the chance, but I always love how these turn out and since it’s summer – I know I’ll be having some fun with my nail polish utilizing this technique.water color nails

To create this nail look I started off with Rainbow Honey’s All Your Base as my base coat and then topped Zoya’s Adel over that – using two coats so that it was a bit more opaque then one coat would offer.  I then took Zoya’s Perrie and dropped a few drops of polish on each nail.  To create the marbleized / water color look, I dipped my nail brush into my nail polish remover and painted over Perrie (the purple shade) so that it kind of mixed in and blended in till I wanted it to be.  Then I dropped on Wet n Wild’s I need a Refresh-mint over the purple, doing the same technique with the nail brush and nail polish remover.  Once I finished with that – I then did the same technique with Cameo from Rainbow Honey.  Once I got it to the look I wanted, I topped my nails with Ciate’s Speed Coat Pro fast dry top coat and let my nails dry.

I will be having a nail polish tutorial coming up with this design on my YouTube channel  It is much easier than people think it is and faster too.

If you are looking for ways to add a little color to your nails but certain colors may not mesh well with your skin tone or your liking, this is also a great way to be able to use those colors.

  1. Yassss! This looks like art. I wish I was as skilled but girl no…I make a hot mess out of marbling.

  2. Love this nail art look! So pretty, and like a good company supper – it looks great and impressive, but is really easy and quick to do!

  3. thank you – I was debating of doing a different nail a different color until a light bulb went on in my brain and decided to mix them together 😉

    I love that look. I’m not sure I followed the technique so I will definitely check out your YT tutorial. It sounds much easier than the traditional method

    • it’s really easy and I know I was all over the place in my words. As soon as it’s up – I’ll post it here… gotta wait for a tripod for my phone since that is what I film on 😉

        I use my phone too, and the little tripod made such a difference. I’ll be on the lookout for your video

    • thanks. This technique is more of a water color painting like… so easy. I hope to film the tutorial once I get a tripod for my phone… since that is what I film my vids on. lol Then I’ll do a water marbling tutorial next. I wish I had more time to do nail stuff… those are my favs.
