31 day challenge..day 15....watercolour

Yay....day 15 and after yesterdays not so stellar performance from me i am bringing you today a water colour effect manicure i am quite proud of.
 

First up, i don't usually like doing water colour....its messy to do...time consuming and not really an effect i like to much...but today...a break through...i love it!!!

I got the inspiration foe this mani from the amazingly talented Robin Moses.  I wanted something a bit different and i saw this kind of design on her blog.....so i drew inspiration from her manicure and added my own spin on it.

I taped my nails up good and proper (only allowing my tips to be exposed to the water) after i applied my base colour (and allowed to thoroughly dry) then dipped them into the water.  They dry uber quick with this method so i then removed the tape and added my swirls further up my nails...then i added a very fine glitter to my tip area and added little blue gems randomly.


For this mani i used China Glaze Manhunt, Aquadelic, Icicle and Picture Polish Cosmos (oh and the fine glitter is China Glaze Fairy Dust)  I hope you guys like this manicure as much as i do....check out the other lovelies taking part and see you day 16! xxx
