DIY Watercolor Nails

So I came across this nail art idea and gave it a try the other night. Mind you mine did not come out as good as this person but I’m hoping with practice I can do it better. Also I want to try with some different colors.

Here is the tutorial by Rebecca Likes Nails and this picture is how it was supposed to look:

I found that brushing the acetone on was trickier than I anticipated, if you brushed too much in a certain way it took away all the color you just put as a drop on your nail but if you used too little it smudged it more than made it look like water color. Still, I think my nails look kind of cool and I’ll definitely do this again. My left hand came out better than my right hand.

Right hand, definitely not as good, plus now I realize this nail has a few chips in it. Damn.
