Day 20/21 water marble inspired by a color

I always complain about water marbling, but this time I actually tried to make it look good and although it took a really long time (probably about an hour) I think I’m pretty happy with my results. I also really like three colors that I used. these colors are really cool together and I’m pretty happy overall.

Interview

I had a job interview on friday and i wore a shirt with a bluish watercolor kind of design on it so i tried watercolor nails to go with it. Honestly, i dont like how they turned out and they came off soon after. i wouldve liked it better i think if i didnt use white. i really dont like white manicures, i just dont think it looks good. it reminds me of the liquid paper manicures everyone would give themselves in middle school and i always thought that looked terrible and disgusting so i guess that feeling carried over to white manicures!

anyway, to get this look i painted a line of blue on the tip and then used acetone and a paintbrush and painted strokes going down. i really like the watercolor effect, just not so much the colors i used. i guess there was just too much white for me to handle!

BTW, the blue is Julep Michelle, and the white is NYC french white tip. 

 

Fun Fact: NYC french white tip is the only white brand name nail polish i have ever had…i dont know why, i dont particularly like it, it just happens to be cheap and at the store whenever i need a new white polish! 

 

which is not very often.

 

 

Catch ya later! 🙂
