The One With a Fun Watercolor Recreation

Nothing to Disclose 

Good morning Polished World!  How are you all doing today?  It's another Tuesday.  I meant to post yesterday but life got crazy, and honestly I was thinking about pausing the blog utnil i get it up and running on the new platform.  Yes, you read that right.  I'm switching the blog off of Blogger.  Last week two of my posts were removed for guideline violations, and if I didn't fix said violations then my whole blog would be removed.  When I read that I had an instant feeling of panic because this blog has been a huge part of my life since 2012 and I just couldn't imagine it being erased off the face of the Earth.

So, I took a deep breath, backed up the blog, and started the transition.  I need to set it up just how I want to and then I'll be live on the other platform.  I need to figure out how to switch the domain.  But basically, you all will have no interruption.  Most of the links will probably be dead but we will figure that out when we get to it...right?

Anyways, today's manicure is one I absolutely adore.  The weather here is getting Spring-y so it is only fitting that I re-created one of my crazy watercolor splash flower designs.  It's been awhile since I've created something that looks this fantastic.  I forgot how much I love crazy nails.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Pretty much every single China Glaze Neon I
Yeahhhhhh, you guessed it, I forgot to write down the names of the polish.  You can't blame me this time, I took the photos for this design and then opened my email to see that my posts were being removed.  Oh to circle back on that, my posts were reinstated.  Now I could leave my blog here, but I just don't have much faith in the system after what happened.  Can't blame a girl.

But with nails like these, who can panic or be upset?  Seriously, this manicure made my day and I couldn't stop looking at my nails.  I love how the gradient in the background look like a watercolor.  This kind of was a multi-step process.  First I had to paint my nails white, then I used the different color neons and sponged them around the nail filling in all the white.  This left a VERY bright neon base.  To tone down the bright neon, I took a make up sponge with white polish and dabbed it over the nails, softening the neons and giving them a more pastel look.

What do you think? Fan of this design?

Until next time, <3.
