Watercolor bubbles

Hello ladies

How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful, and I will show you at the end of this post a few pictures I made, but first my nails. I was in the mood for a playful design, so I thought to use acrylic colors and the new watercolor technique. I saw a lot of great manicures made in this style, mine is not so well done, but I will share it with you. 

I used: 
Coral Milano M03, Sally Hansen - Lavender Cloud, acrylic colors and a small brush.


Last week I bought the cream looking Coral Milano polish, because it seemed to be a great one in the bottle, but after applying it was a disaster. I put it on my pinky and pointer finger in three layers, because in one coat the cream effect can not be seen at all. This polish contains small white and blue glitters and medium sized red and blue hex glitters. These glitter are not smooth on the nail surface even after I applied a generous top coat they caught in the hair and clothes. If I will use it again, I will apply it as a top!


The watercolor bubble technique is really easy. Mix acrylic paint with water and make irregular drips on your nails, after it take a dry brush and touch the bubble, the water should absorb and it  leaves a ring. 





Now, about my weekend. From last Friday for a week my city is celebrating town days - Zilele Clujului, so we went and had some fun looking at different exhibitions, concerts and multicultural events. So, I warn you this part is picture heavy!


















I hope you enjoyed these colorful pictures, I would love to read your oppinion about them!

I wish you all a great week begin!

  9. Beautiful manicure! I absolutely love this technique and I think I'm going to do a similar manicure soon. But I'm still unsure, I don't know if I'm going to use watercolours or nail polish.

    1. I don't know how it work with polishes, but I think in that case you can diluate it with polish remover. I think that with acrylic's it is more easy because it does not dry so fast as the polishes. I am very curious what way you will choose and how your mani will look!

  10. I love your manicure and the pictures.
    I have to be honest, I didn't like that Coral Milano polish either. It looks a lot like It's a Trap-Eze by China Glaze (formula wise) and I just hated that polish.
    As for the pictures, they're great. I love colourful thinks and fell in love with that Hello Kitty beetle.
    Wish you a great week as well sweetie! :*

    1. I am happy that we have the same opinion about the polish. I was very excited to try it, and it really was a big disappointment. But, that's it I move on to a next one :)
      That Hello Kitty beetle was a big hit, everyone wanted to take a picture with it!
