Flip/Flop February Day 13: Watercolor/Sponging!

Hello again lovies! Time for Day 13 of the Flip/Flop February Challenge!

Today's Flip/Flop is Watercolor/Sponging, and I chose to do watercolor!
For my watercolor, I used the technique where you dip your brush into acetone, and then into your polish, so that it gives it a nice, soft feel. Like watercolor paintings! :)

I have to say though, I'm not totally satisfied with how it turned out. I mean, I get that the point of watercolor is for it to be a little sloppy/blurry and imperfect looking, but I think I just had something completely different in my head. I don't hate it, but I could've done better i think. Maybe I'll try this one again someday. :p

The design I decided to go with was a cherry blossom tree. I love cherry blossoms, they're so beautiful, and not too difficult to translate into nails. Without even realizing it, I set it against a mint green background and sort of reminds me of the Arizona green tea logo! LOL :p

The base color is E.L.F. - Mint Cream.
For the tree branches I mixed together Avon - Olive Green and N.Y.C. - Black Lace Creme,
And for the flower blossoms I used Sephora by OPI - I'm Wired, What Aura Gonna Wear?, and A True Romantic, and mixed them together in different ways to get all the different shades of pink.

I'm not completely satisfied with this mani, but oh well. :P
