To begin, I chose China Glaze White on White as my base color. After 2 coats, I sealed it with a coat of Seche Vite.
Next, I dripped 3-4 dots of CG Lighthouse to each nail (I liked the glimmery look to the yellow).
Then I took a clean paintbrush (one that is fuller than my normal detailing brush), dipped it into acetone, and very lightly spread the Lighthouse dots around my nail. This is how I get them to turn into a "super soft" washed sort of effect.
I repeated the step, using Zoya Pippa because I wanted the yellow to stand out a bit more.
Next I added 3 drops of CG Sky High-Top.
I quickly used acetone to lightly create the washed effect again.
And I sealed off the watercolor wash with a quick coat of Seche Vite.
I LOVE this style of manicure and I have so much fun playing with it! It's like watercolor painting on 10 tiny canvas boards. *.* Have you all tried this yet? Did my pics help explain it better? If you haven't tried this, I highly recommend it! =) Just remember to use the brush lightly...I always tend to smudge my left ring finger. >.<
Have a fantastic day & as always, Happy Lacquering! =)
