February Challenge: Watercolor

Another day, another manicure that kicked my butt. Watercolor. Bah. I tried putting blobs of color on my nails and blending them by placing a plastic baggie over them. Fail. I put blobs of color on my nails and used a makeup brush with polish remover on it to thin the blobs out. Yet again, another fail. So I turned to the tried and true sponging method to save myself from chucking all of my polish out the window. 

Ok, ok, I would never do that. :) Anyways, I used China Glaze Agro, Square Hue Wartime Romance, and Square Hue High School Crush to emulate a watercolor mani the best I could after two fails and a lot of frustration. I was going for a Monet-esque Water Lilies thing with the pinks representing the flowers and the green for the lily pads. Anyways, this is what I ended up with. Not 100% a watercolor, but close enough! Enjoy! :)
