Week Two Watercolor | #busygirlnails

» This post contains affiliate links «

Week two's theme for the Summer edition of the Busy Girl Nails Challenge is watercolor.  For this bright watercolor design, I used Essie's Serial Shopper, Vices Versa, and Too Taboo, all from Essie's 2014 Neon collection.


To achieve this look I started out with a white base coat and, painting one nail at a time, I dabbed a couple dots of each color and used a small brush dipped in acetone to liquify the dots.
