Aquarelle Floral Mani

Hello guys, 
I am very excited to show you the mani which I created few days back. For this particular mani I have used water colors!!! So, first of all lemme show the mani I created 
I dunno how so many ladies create wonders using acrylic colors but I personally find it little bit difficult to use them. I have worked with acrylic colors in the past and I have noticed that once they dry up on your nails and you don't find the design so appealing and want to remove it,  then its hard to remove them with water (though it can be easily removed with water when it is wet). The second thing I encountered was that they do not mix well, I mean if you want two colors to have a blended kinda look then I find it difficult to achieve it (I may be encountering all these problems coz I don't use them regularly and not well versed with their use but these are my personal opinions). I wanted the colors to have a blended look and easy to work with and I have used water colors during my school and college days for art so I find the water colors easy to use but when I used then over a nail polish they did not stick well so I thought that these might not work over polish but then I came across some tuts on you tube as to how to use them over polish. So the first method is to first apply an acrylic color over polish and then working with water colors over it. White acrylic color as it will bring out the colors of water colors used over it. But then I thought it will just limit my use of other nail polishes as it won't matter what color polish I wear as I will have to cover it with white acrylic paint and moreover what if I have to design some small patterns???? So searched more on you tube and there I found the answer. The first option is to cover the polish with matte polish and then you can work with water colors and the second option is to layer the polish with clear polish and let it dry and then buff it slightly. The reason for these being that the water colors work well on etched surface and thus when you buff your nails or apply a matte top coat, it creates a rough surface and water colors can stick well on that. The plus pint with water colors is that they can be easily removed with water even after they dry up on the nails.
So, for creating the design for today's mani I applied a matte top coat over the polish and worked with water colors and they did work nicely and I was happy with the outcome.
So, enough said, here is the mani once again. The base color used is China Glaze's 'All Wrapped Up' form CG Holiglaze collection.

I hope you all liked it and if you try this then do lemme know.

My Christams Manis

Hi guys, so Christmas is over and I had participated in the Indian Lacquer Group's Christmas challenge and these are the manis which I created for the same.
Candy, Gifts, Angel, Christmas tree and wreath
The above design I did using water colors and it was not so good coz I came to know that these colors don't work well on a glossy surface but now I  learnt how to make them work over a polish and I have made a design using water colors which I will be posting soon. The image on the thumb is stamped using the image on MJ tester plate.
Ginger Bread Man
The above design is a simple design and I drew gingerbread man using acrylic color and the polka dots using polish in golden yellow and red over a green polish.
I felt so lethargic that I just changed the pattern on my ring finger and drew a reindeer on a glitter base and inside red polka dot I added green colored polka dots
Wrapping paper
I had bought some nail foils recently and I thought of using them for the challenge. Some foils worked very well and some didn't, well over all this was an experiment and a way to find out which all foils work well.
All that Glitters
I had purchased China Glaze Holiglaze collection from ebay and it arrived well in time and during the challenge, so I thought of using them for the challenge and I am so happy to own this collection. All the polishes are so glittery and I specially loved the chunky glitter polish having a mix of purple, blue, silver and white glitters.

So guys, these are the manis I created for the Christmas, I hope you liked them..
