NOTD - Mythical Watercolour Nails

Hey there lovely readers!

Pretty nails always helps make me feel better & I'm excited to share this mani with you lovelies as I think its one of my favourites in quite a while with its mythical vibes & involves the 'watercolour' method using Sally Hansen sheer jellies!

What do you think? I was so happy when I found the Sally Hansen Triple Shine Jellies in my most coveted of polish hunting grounds...PoundWorld! 

You may recall OPI releasing their Sheer Tints a while back & whilst these aren't exact dupes they can be used in the same manner which is this watercolour effect.

I managed to find four shades from the range, Sea Through (green), Ice Tint (Blue), Grape Jelly (purple) & Jell-ous? (Red). The formula for these is VERY sheer, so unfortunately used alone or even for jelly sandwiches is a no go as you'll be applying at least 8 coats of polish for an opaque finish!

Using these babies on top of another shade however & its another story & I'm keen to experiment in more ways I can use these sheer jellies! For this Mythical Watercolour manicure I decided to use both a silver & white base, here I've applied one coat of silver polish, before adding a random triangle pattern design using a nail art brush.

I then grabbed one polish at a time & added one drop of each coloured jelly, not having too much on the brush though, otherwise it would overflow. I kept on adding each colour until they merged together nicely to create the watercolour effect. Because of the sheer quality of the formula, the polishes mix together beautifully.

Before finishing I added a pretty crystal rhinestone & sealed with topcoat. I'm so in love with this technique, the finished result is so pretty & for some reason just brings unicorns, mermaids, fairies & all other manner of mythical creatures to mind! I've still seen the Sally Hansen Triple Shine jellies in PoundWorld FYI so I definitely recommend picking them up!

Thanks as always for reading lovelies!

Lotsa love to ya!
