Watercolor Nails

This was a technique I had not yet attempted so I was excited to see how it would turn out.  I have seen some tutorials (on Pinterest I think) that used acetone to thin the polish on the nail.  I did mine a bit differently.  I painted on my base (Essie Marshmallow) and let that dry then added a small drop of a color to the nail.  Then I took a small brush dipped in polish thinner and dabbed it on the wet polish to spread the color and repeated the process with the other nails and other colors (Essie Plumberry and Luxedo and China Glaze Aqua Baby). I am sure I will be trying this with other colors!
