Black and white watercolor manicure

For today’s nail art Sunday at Lelack I have a new type of nail art to show you (at least for me :D), watercolor nails! I’ve seen this technique for a couple of days ago at My Polish Stash and I was sold! The polish spots look really like I’ve been using watercolors and the combinations of colors could be endless! I ended up with black and white though because I love the contrast between the black and the white. In the picture I’ve used OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls as a base color and the black Nordic Cap NP12 for the spots. Look out for more watercolor manicures in the future because I‘m in love with the watercolor effect!

    Jättesnyggt! Jag älskar att göra sådana här manikyrer, speciellt i vitt och någon neon. Den rökiga känslan är så häftig. :)

    This watercolor design in black and white looks very elegant and much better than mine. I need to try this again, but with less colors. Thanks for linking my blog, I’ve had tons of visits via your site :D
