Springtime Nail Art

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!
I have a lovely spring inspired mani for you today, courtesy of MissJenFABULOUS on YouTube. If you click on her name, it will take you to the mani she created, which inspired mine.
For my mani, I started with a regular coat of Sinful Colors in Sugar Rush. Then, as described in the video tutorial, I dabbed on SC Mint Apple, Unicorn, Sweet Tooth, Sugar N Spice in drops on my nails then used a plastic sandwich bag which I laid over the wet polish drops and dabbed once or twice with my fingers. I worked one nail at a time. And because I'm silly, I forgot to actually take a photo of the finished water color on it's own. Any-who, I was really pleased with the result and I'm looking forward to doing it again with different polishes.

Here's a cool macro shot, it gives a better sense of the water color background.

I topped this off with a quick coat of Posche top coat, then after that tried, I applied Sparkles by Julie in Sugah!. Topped with Posche again, and voila! How light and Spring-y it is!
