Yaz`s Attempt at quotWatercoloringquot

5 years ago

Im sure you all know who /member/PixiePolish here on Luuux is. She always has the best manicure posts and nail polish hauls. She recently created a water color look that was gorgeous /viz/notd-lisa-frank-watercolors! I just knew I had to attempt to recreate it. I tried this manicure over and over again and I was NOT getting it!!! I was actually getting very frustrated. I kept reading Lyndsays post over and over and knew I wasnt doing anything wrong. Right when I was about to give uplight bulbI clicked on the link where she got the idea from. Duh Yaz! Lol. I went to the blog, http://rebeccalikesnails.blogspot.com/, and sure enough it was there and guess whatI was doing it wrong. Haha! After finally getting the technique down, I saw how easy it was! You paint your nails with your base color, then add a top coat, let that dry, make a few dots with your first color, take a brush and soak it acetone, dab some off, pat onto the nail, making the color you just dotted to get the water/marble effect. Once youre done with the fist color continue doing the same with whatever other colors you choose to use. The only problem I came across was with the acetone, on my left hand I used too much so the colors are really light and more watery looking. On my right hand I used less acetone so the colors look a little more blochy. I need to find my happy medium so both hands can look somewhat similar lol. This is a nail look you can totally customize, you can use any colors, use as many colors as you need, use a lot of acetone, use a little bit of acetone, the combinations with this look are endless. What I chose to use for this look were
---> Milani Smoothe Base Coat ---> Sally Hansen InstaDri Whirlwind White ---> OPI Nicki Minaj collection in the color Fly ---> Color Club All Over Pink ---> Sally Hansen Xreme Wear Mello Yellow ---> Seche Vite You have to go check out /viz/notd-lisa-frank-watercolors, it is so pretty! Thank you Lyndsay for always posting such great looks! Hope you dont mind me trying to recreate your looks. They NEVER look as good as hers, but its ok, I have my own twist to them (even if it is a messy one haha). I hope everyone is having a great weekend. *Photo and content are my own.
