I recently stumbled upon a beautiful tutorial by Karine from Nailderella on how to paint watercolor flowers with acrylic paint. I've tried using real watercolors for nail art before, but it didn't work as desired. Karine suggests to use a matte top coat on top of the base color so that the diluted acrylic paint would adhere to the nail. This is actually really important, the color will not even slightly adhere to a non matte finish. So I used Flormar - 400 as my base and then added a thin coat of Essie - Matte About You. I added the flowers with white, pink and green acrylic paint and then finished with a coat of BTGN Top Sealer. This might actually be my nail art goodbye to summer! It's getting colder every day now and I've already seen a lot of fall inspired manicures popping up, which I really love. This is definitely my season! What about you, did you say goodbye to summer yet?
