Watercolour (aquarelle) magnolia flowers - new technique to Lucy's Stash!

Hello lovelies,

I have waited so long to show you this manicure! It's my first stab at watercolour painting. It's not the 'watercolour' with nail polish and acetone but these are the real watercolours or aquarelles if you want that artists use. I absolutely loved the texture, the different layering options and how different it looks.

I've chosen magnolias as a theme for this nail art because a) I miss Spring and b) I love magnolia flowers so much. So what do you think? Would you like to see more in the future?

  1. Wow, that looks amazing! I will never have the patience (or the skills) to paint something like that.
    What is the name of the OPI, by the way? Alpine snow? It looks so soft.
