Nail Crazies Unite - Pastel Watercolor

Hey there!  Today's Nail Crazies Unite theme is a pretty one (I know this because I've already checked out a couple of the manis that ladies have done for it).  We're doing pastel watercolours.  There's so many ways to do watercolor nails and, honestly, I think they're all beautiful.  I personally wend with just thinning out polish with acetone (and making sure I have lots of top coat on my base so I didn't eat right through it).  It's so quick and easy and creates pretty results.  And you can control how bright or pale you want the color!

I used all Rica polishes for these.  I started with 2 coats of White Out and a healthy layer of top coat.  Then I did the watercolor effect with  acetone-thinned Mellow Yellow, Ain’t It Peachy, Summer Mint, Pinky Promise, Sugar Plum Wings and Robin’s Egg Blue. 

Then I did the stamping with Messy Mansion MM31 and MM42 with Rica Blackout and finished with Tonic top coat.  Easy!   

That's really about all I can say about these.  I do love this technique.  Tonight I'm hoping to do another watercolour-style look but with jelly polishes.  Cross your fingers for me that it turns out!  I've had no nail time lately and need some good results!  

'Til next time...
