Today I have another design to add to my St. Patrick's Day Series! I'm running pretty thin on ideas for this series so I'm basically doing more abstract designs, just with the holiday-appropriate colours.
Today's mani uses a technique that was first seen on this video by BeautyGeeks. Rebecca came across the video and since then we've seen a number of really cool interpretations of this mani, such as this one by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails.
I decided to give the watercolor technique a try by using a variety of green polishes and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I thought that the greens might get muddled together and just end up looking dirty, but they all stand out separately yet blend together to create a really cool look.
Enjoy! And check out the tutorial by BeautyGeeks that I posted above if you want to try this look for yourself.
