Watercolor bubble flowers


I'm still really frustrated with not being able to do my normal watermark :@ It's making me not really want to do blog posts.... I think I might just uninstall and reinstall Photoshop if I don't get any help in the Photoshop forum :(

Anyway here is a mani I attempted inspired by my coworker's shirt from H&M. Here is the shirt

I used diluted acrylic paint to try and get that watercolor effect. Since it was so watery though it was hard to control where the paint went. I had to change the flowers to 5 petal flowers or they would just look like blobs of paint. I used a small nail art brush and made flowers MrCandiipants style. I used the bubble nails technique to absorb the excess water and try to create a watercolor look. 

These didn't really turn out looking like the inspiration, but I think they turned out OK... not super thrilled with them or anything though. What do you girls think?

  1. They look good. I think you probably should have diluted the acrylic paint a bit more since they seem to still look pretty opague. I hope you can solve that issue your having with Photoshop too!

    Oh man, that sucks that no one was able to help you with your watermark issues. You'll get it sorted in the end. :-)

  3. Super cute manicure! I think it looks great - Don't worry about how your watermark is in the picture, it doesn't take away from your beautiful nail art :) I hope you get it fixed so you can be happy with it though xx
