Today I declared Spring on my nails! I am now totally sick of being ill and feeling like it's still winter. So I decided I was going to at least pretend it was spring when I looked at my nails!
I decided to pick out two shades that instantly make me think of spring when put together - a bright fuchsia and a pastel but bright turquoise using China Glaze Wicked Style and Color Club Blue-Ming and I also picked out a lighter pink with Models Own Strawberry Tart which is such a lovely pastel shade. I actually used two similar shades for some Cherry Blossom nail art last year (here) and loved the effect. They are just two colours that go really nicely together.
I also decided to use a non-messy watercolour technique as it always looks so pretty. There are quite a few ways to achieve a watercolour effect on the nails so I think I will do a post this coming week on 3 ways you can do it without creating a mess! I can tell you however that the technique I used here was just using a plastic sandwich bag over my nails to smooch all the colours together. Really so simple, but I will explain it better with a tutorial and photos when I write the post on watercolour nails and try out some other colour combinations.
On spring related subjects I also have my Spring/Summer Nail Edit 2013 to do, which I'm really looking forward to, as I love picking out the shades and deciding on the back drops. You can see my last Autumn/Winter Nail Edit here. Plus quite a few spring makeup posts will be coming up in April!
Fingers crossed the Spring weather will appear soon!
Would love to know what your favourite spring nail polishes are.
