Sally Hansen Palm Beach Jelly Watercolor Tutorial

9:00:00 AM

Happy Sunday polished world!  As promised, to day I am sharing with you my tutorial for the watercolor manicure I did using the Sally Hansen Palm Beach Jellies!  Goodness, I love these polishes.  If you want to have a look at that manicure and read my tiny review regarding the polishes, please head on over to that post!

If you were a reader yesterday and are itching to see what I did, then let's take a look at the tutorial!!! :)

Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Sally Hansen - Vitamin D-Light, Sea Through, Ice Mint, Grape Jelly, Water Melon
  1. Start off with a base coat of your favorite white polish.  If it is a sheer white, I suggest using two coats since these jellies are sheer and you can see your base through the design.
  2. Pick a polish and begin your water color!  For mine, I started with Vitamin D-Light since this was the lightest and you could build the best on top of it.  Apply the polish randomly on the nail using the brush itself.  I did so by dripping a tiny bit on the nail and painting it towards the edge.
  3. With another polish, I followed what I did in step 2 just in a different place on the nail.
  4. Repeat
  5. Repeat again, but start filling in the blank white areas.
  6. Repeat one last time filling in the last few blank areas.  Make sure there is no white left on the nail!
  7. Add a holo glitter top coat!  Enjoy!
Do not be upset if you overlap any of the colors on accident.  This overlap makes the look and gives it more of a watercolor finish!

Okay, kind of didn't need to make all the steps for this tutorial since it kind of is straight forward after the first few, but I think it's helpful!

What do you think?  Is this a look you're going to try?

Now, if you do not have the Palm Beach Jellies, no worries, you can achieve this look with the OPI Sheer tints and any other squishy jelly polishes you may own!  I believe Loaded Lacquer created some awesome jellies a few months ago that I believe would work kind of awesomely for this kind of design!

If you re-create this design, please tag #tlcinspiredmani!  I want to see your designs! :)  And, as always, if you have any looks that you want me to create a tutorial, please let me know!  I have so much fun doing these!

**I purchased all the polishes used in this post**

Love you all!  Until next time, <3.
