Vetical Watercolor Mani!

I have a trendy mani for you today: the watercolor! I've been wanting to try this since I saw Jen do it HERE. I started with Dr.'s Remedy Healing (a gray creme), then with an art brush, I used (if I remember correctly) Milani Yellow Whiz, Fast Fuchsia and the blue I think was Bettina Over Dyed. Sorry for the non-exact colors, I didn't expect this to turn out so well. After I painted stripes with the art brush, I dipped a fan brush in acetone and just dragged it over to blend the lines and thin it out. Then I added some new glitter... Girly Bits Hippity Hop (which I'll show you in a separate post later). I like how the gray shows through on this mani, it looks very old faded colored jeans to me. What do you think, a win or fail? I kinda like it. I have more with watercoloring coming up for you as well. 


  1. ooooooooooooh, I like this!!! I think I am going to do something similar!!! just different colors. I wanna do lines.

  2. Love it! And once again here comes Hippty Hoop which I am totally nuts over since you showed it over pastels recently. I have to use one of my cheap fan brushes and try this technique.

  3. This is really unique! I love that you took a trendy style and put your own spin on it! Turned out beautifully :)
