Outlined Watercolor Nails + Watercolor Video Tutorial

Today's design started out as another attempt to make the most of the Essie Neons and they ended up as outlined Watercolor Nails. First I used two coats of Essie - Blanc to create an even, thick base for my watercoloring. Then I used Essie - Bottle Service and Essie - DJ Play That Song to create the watercolor nails. I filmed the process on one nail, so there's a short tutorial in the middle of this post!
I wanted to wear them like this first so I added one coat of BTGN Top Sealer. Somehow I managed to get a lot of tip wear in just a day, so that's why I used the technique of outlining once again, hoping to get better results this time. And I really like them so much more on round nails! And with a thinner line. Success! :) I used white acrylic paint and then another coat of BTGN Top Sealer to finish.

    1. They are free handed with white acrylic paint and a small nail art brush. :)

  7. a while back I loved this manicure so much that I had to re-do it and when you left a comment at one of my posts (''High on Pink Tie Dye''), I was wondering, whether you saw my version of your awesome design, I'm afraid not and I guess you could be interested (?) so, I'm leaving a totally related link, hope that's okay, I'm sorry if not :D


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post, I appreciate it a lot!
