I can't believe I'm already half way through the nail challenge! This was the first time I've ever done a watercolor mani and it may be my last. It just took a long time for results that I liked but didn't love.
I started out with two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Wet Suit, with a layer of NYC Grand Central Station over it. Wet Suit is a limited edition shade, out this summer. It comes out darker on the nail than it looks in the bottle but it is a fabulous, creamy two coater. This was a great formula and it was so photogenic, I had to include two swatch photos. So shiny and pretty!
Then I used The Nailasaurus water color Nimbus tutorial but mine didn't come out nearly as pretty as hers do! I still liked the final look I got though, especially the mix of blues and greens. In order, I dabbed on: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue, Sally Hansen Insta Dri Mint Sprint, and Sinful Colors Mint Apple.
I also added another layer of NYC Grand Central Station after I was done with all my Q-tip/acetone dabbing.
