My Forray into Essie’s Watercolors

Rainbow Nail ArtHey all! Hope you had a good weekend. I’ve been tossing the idea of posting this design around for months. When the entire watercolor trend came out this past spring, I was itching to get a hold of one. I settled with picking up the full pack of Essie’s Silk Watercolors and giving that a shot.

To make it short, I hated these colors. They wouldn’t blend, they were so streaky, the colors were dull, and Essie decided to pair them with a regular white polish instead of a metallic base. I swatched the entire collection and hated the photos so much, I promptly returned the set and bought something else.

However, I was dead set on making something work, so I tried for the gradient. I started with two coats of White Page then worked my way through the rainbow with all of the colors, overlaying them while the polish was still wet. I topped the entire thing with Essie’s Carnival, and I really believe the glitter topper is the best part of the design.
