Watercolor Rainbow Trees

May 9, 2017 Lisa 2

The prompt for this week’s Nail Crazies Unite was watercolor. I decided I wanted to use actual watercolors since I have seen Robin Moses use them before. She has a great tutorial on youtube and so I decided to follow it. Her lines are, of course, much better than mine, Read More

Ugh! I just haven’t had much time or energy to paint my nails lately since I’ve been focusing on getting a few craft projects out before Christmas arrives. Hopefully I will be able to write a post about that soon. So many intentions. So little time to follow through. With Read More

Choosing “Dracula” for my book was definitely low-hanging fruit. Now I kinda wish I’d picked Twilight and abused glitter. Oh, wait. I abused glitter anyway! I’ve really been loving Sinful Color’s Luxe Fragments line. I even have a few more manicures planned using them. The jelly and glitter fragment combo Read More

I started with the base colors in a gradient (except for the black) so that I wouldn’t have to worry too much about full coverage with the glitter. Then I dabbed on the glitters with a sponge and top coated. And then top coated a couple more times (at some Read More

My new Ejibaus plate arrived so I really wanted to play with it. I grabbed colors that looked pretty summer-y and started splashing them around. As fun and glittery as it was, this just wasn’t a favorite. None of the patterns really felt like they meshed. I feel like I Read More
