…just add Water! As in water, I actually mean Watercolour.
So 20/20 hindsight is one hell of a talent – especially for a
maniac manic-ure-fanatic, like myself. After recovering some normality in my sleep pattern following my glow-ilicious talons, these bad-boys are a tall drink of water. Gurl, I is still thirsty~ uhhmm hmmm.
After a few remarkably OOTT (outlandishly over the top) posts – which is my Strawberry Jam – I feel the need to water-it-down. You know, really wash-away all the insane amount of detail and features. Lol, puns. Even though I’m still feeling a little somethin-somethin‘ for neons but not recovered enough to go FULL glow in the dark – I’m impractical… not entirely compromised.
One of my favourite watercolour memories – was as a child, flipping the hell out, because the super vibrant colours I was using for a watercolour painting kept dulling when dried. Weird right, never happened before at home when I would paint with my siblings. Then I was like *ping – genius epiphany* just layer more colour! Like
slap make-up; if the face you’ve slapped applied over yours still looks rubbish – just add more. Dem brows, lips, eyes, cheekbones – all or go home!
Fast forward a few hours; I had this f$%&ing brown monstrosity of a watercolour painting and was arguing so hard with my teacher that it “Wasn’t ok” that get this, full blown breakdown, I worked myself into hyperventilating mess. Think Real Housewives, less botox, higher pitched screeching and more cussing – ahh to be young again. Although it turns out the reason the colours didn’t pop, as such, is because this basic b!tch bought in $1-Shop coloured ink (in bulk) and NOT EVEN REAL WATERCOLOUR PAINT… from that day this why A.) We can’t have nice things
at least for the remainder of that year and B.) I trust no one.
Nuts and bolts on this look – black feature talon with gold holo-stripe, this can be matte or gloss. All other talons, build a purely white opaque base. Select your neon hues; I used green, orange yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue – just a few. Blot them onto the white base, and then using your finger, a plastic film like cling wrap or aluminium foil – press down enough to push the neons into one another. Not so much like a dragging brush movement, but gentle nudging over a greater area. Careful not to be too hard
that’s what she said, to push the colours off the white base and into your cuticles. Clean the perimeter of the nail and finish with top coat.
I love, love, love this look – the amount of comments as to whether or not it’s a nail sticker
or transfer of whatever the hell those things are called. No; they’re real, Yes; I applied them, No; I wouldn’t like to go to your van for candy. Oh, you have a puppy… that’s a game changer! Excuse me Darlings… something’s come up. Be good and don’t talk to strangers.
So what you think, Darling?
Share your experiences with watercolour shenanigans or arguing with teachers during a psychosomatic breakdown – I tend to go for the throat really early on… don’t argue with me about colours Miss. You will not win.
