Put on your apron and grab a brush—for today’s nail tutorial we’re painting a masterpiece. We’ve decided that watercolor nails are the grown-up alternative to one of our favorite childhood pastimes. The best part is, kindergarten rules still apply—there are no mistakes! Get ready to unleash your inner artiste…
A small paintbrush or old eyeliner brush
An assortment of nail polishes (we stayed within the pink family for our manicure)
A paper plate
Raid your polish supply and pick your favorites.
Paint a pale base. A light colored base allows you easily to paint darker colors on top. We used essie Guchi Muchi Puchi.
Create your artist’s palette. Pouring out a little polish onto a paper plate makes for easy application (plus, it’s more fun this way).
