OPI Nail Art - Watercolour Nails

Hi Goddesses

And welcome to the final post featuring the 3 OPI polishes I was sent for review - My Vampire is Buff, Suzi's Hungary Again and Vant To Bite My Neck.

I hope you like that you've seen 5 nail art looks rather than just 3 swatches, but let me know - I'd love to know your thoughts.

Watercolour nails are great and fit right into the splodger category.  You really can't go wrong with them, even if you DO go wrong lol.   I've been asked for a tutorial on them, and I will .... soon.   There's a lot of different hitting the blog soon, and Tutorials are very high on that menu.

This started with 2 coats of Buff and a coat of Poshe.  You need the top coat as a barrier for the next step.  I then dotted on some of the darkest colour and then blobbed acetone on top of it to dilute it and used a smallish nail art brush to move it around.

Once that's dry you can add your second colour, and repeat.   If you're not happy with your colour balance, just keep fiddling til you get the look you're after.  I added a bit more pink to some of these nails and a bit more purple to others. The joy of this look is that random = more :)

If you're in the UK, you can buy these polishes HERE.

I hope you've enjoyed this week :) xx
