I’ve had this watercolor nail art on my Pinterest board for a little bit & I decided to give it a try yesterday
It seems fairly easy & the instructions are straightforward enough. It looked easier than water marbling, which I can pull off but I tend to get polish all over the place when I do it & fail 1 nail out of 3, leading to far too much redoing.
Base coat, dots of the polish you want, put a piece of plastic over it, press down & spread it out a little.
What could possibly go wrong?
I gave my nails a base coat of white
& lined up a couple other colors
Then I put dots on them and pressed the plastic over them.
Somehow though I did not end up with the same results.
The polish smeared and left big clear spots where the undercoat was carried off by the new polish on the first nail.
So I thought, ok, press more gently on the next nail.
No. More smears and spots.
I did 4 nails and this is what I ended up with
In the words of Craftfail – NAILED IT!
Have you tried any Pinterest inspired projects and failed as miserably as I have?
