Water Color Nail Art - Rainbow Rain

Hi friends, today I'm sharing a recent nail art I did for the September nail art challenge in the STNChallenges. This month is all about learning new techniques. I have never done water color nails before and it was fun to create these rainbow nails.

Water color nail art is a technique where you thin out polish with acetone and apply it on your nails and before it dries out you lift off most of the color using a brush or a Q-tip (ear-bud). This leaves a ring of color with a pale hint inside. Depending on how you apply the thinned out polish you can get various results on your nails.

In my case I used thinned out acrylic paints instead of polish to create a rainbow effect on my nails.


And later on I stamped over it using Mo You London Suki plate to create a rain effect.

The base is a new KB Shimmer polish that has finally landed in my hands. I ordered it from an international website through a group order with my nail art buddies. I will share my new KB Shimmer polishes in a separate post very soon.

I hope you liked my interpretation of water color nails. This is my first time with a rainbow effect as well. Such colorful nails are a good way of bringing in color into your life on a dull gloomy day!
