I have still some manicures to post that I did during summer and didn't have time to post them then. I did this mani mainly because I wanted to play with the four Dance Legend Top Aquarelle polishes that I own. Also, Marta from ChitChatNails posted her gorgeous Essie Silk Watercolor manicure on June and I wanted to do something similar.
I used two coats of Essie Blanc as my base color. Then I applied two black flowery water decals on each nail and topped them with a coat of top coat. Finally I just painted with the Top Aquarelle polishes on top of the white base. I tried to use a tiny amount of each polish and short brush strokes to achieve that watercolor look, but I did these in a bit of a hurry and I honestly the final outcome wasn't really what I was going after. I think I just used a bit too much of each Aquarelle polish, so the brush strokes and the watercolor feel isn't that visible.
Nevertheless, this was great colorful look and pretty perfect for summer! The four Top Aquarelles that I used are: Chagall (purple), Matisse (orange), Monet (pink) and Sisley (turquoise).
I have to say that I really love this watercolor nail polish trend, they are really fun to play with and there are numerous possibilities that you can use them for! Though I might have gotten a bit carried away and ordered the whole Essie Silk Watercolor collection...
