Valentine’s Day Themed Watercolor Art 2013

Hello everyone. I'm back today with another manicure from many years ago, that I actually didn't even originally create for Valentine's Day, haha.

I thought these could easily go for a Valentine's Day type of manicure...

This manicure was done sometime in early September of 2013, so it's almost 10 years old!

To execute the watercolor technique, I used Sally Hansen's Right Said Red as the base, white acrylic paint for the watercolor design, and I used Sally Hansen's Sparkling Rose on various random parts of every nail for some extra sparkle.

To create the watercolor spots, I used a striper brush, acrylic paint, and water; I would dot a very small dot of the acrylic paint on the nail using the brush, then I would dip the brush in water and spread it as far as I wanted the watercolor spot to go. Using the same brush I placed spots of Sparkling Rose over various parts of each nail.

Although this manicure was created around Fall time, I think it's very Valentine's Day-appropriate, and it looks like it could have been created specifically for the holiday! I like these quite a bit

I have no link for Sally Hansen Sparkling Rose because it's a very old and now discontinued rare nail polish and I couldn't find it anywhere.
