For my birthday, one of my lovely friends gave me the Essie Silk Effects Watercolor set in "Swept Away". It looks like this:
The kit comes with a white base called 'White Page', a yellowy-orange called 'Muse, Myself', a hot pink called 'Love Sheen', and a deep purple called 'No Shrinking Violet'. The colours are quite translucent and jelly-like, as they're meant to mimic watercolour paints. The white in the set wasn't my absolute favourite (I found it a bit patchy and streaky), but you could always use a different base colour.
They can be used in a number of combinations and designs. Get creative! I decided to try some flowers in hopes that spring is here to stay. This is what I came up with:
I'm really pleased with how they turned out and I'm excited to try out some other designs as well. The best part about this look is that you can be a little messy and it will still look great.
Have you tried any of the Essie Watercolors? What did you think? Let me see your nails!
