Watercolor Mani + Pic Tutorial + Holo + Pegasus!

So, tonight I whipped up a nice little mani that I wanted to share!

This is my first attempt at a water-less water marble, also called the Water Color Mani, so please be nice :)

For this look, I used HK Girl Base and Topcoat, ButterLondon Fruit Machine, ButterLondon Miolly Coddled, Zoya Pippa, and Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing. My base was Confetti Wedding White.

Here is the "method," which I read through and took most ideas from the fabulous Chalkboard Nails.

First, paint your nails with a base and then basecoat. Add your topcoat, too, and really let dry. You dont want to drag the bottom layer up later.

Second, grab 3-4 of your fave colors, and start with a few blobs. I started with Pippa, by Zoya:

Third, while the polish is still went, grab a cheap painbrush, dip into acetone, and smear around!  It's OK if it's imperfect. Your clear coat will blend it altogether later.

Wait for a few mins...and repeat with the next few colors!  butterLONDON Fruit Machine:

Smear that around, too:

Next up was Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing, then Molly Coddled by butterLONDON.  I think I should've chosen a lighter green, the Sinful Colors is a little to prominent:

And here is the finished product:

I added Kawaii lacquer's holo top coat and a Pegasus decal. What do you think?

I am not sure anyone can get this "wrong" because it's nail art and it's fine!
