Watercolor nails resemble a watercolor painting. With light muted colors and a delicate feel to them, watercolor nails are a perfect nail art design for spring and summer. They’re pretty and feminine, and a fun and easy nail art design to try.
There are actually a few different ways to create watercolor nail art. You can use the plastic wrap method, which involves dotting nail polish onto the nail and pressing a piece of plastic wrap over it to blend the colors. Some nail art enthusiasts also create a watercolor effect on nails by thinning nail polish with acetone and dabbing it onto white nails. Finally, you can also gently dab a bit of nail polish onto your nails with a makeup sponge to create watercolor nails, similar to how you would create gradient nails.
The hardest part about creating watercolor nails of your own is sometimes choosing which colors to use for your nail art design. If you need a little inspiration to get started, check out these beautiful examples of watercolor nail art designs!
