This challenge is very challenging! So many posts, so little time! I took inspiration from this painting by Megan Duncanson called “Home On The Hill”.
I love the swirling colours, the shapes, the lines, its a great playful image and it was fun to paint on nails. For this design, I have mixed together half watercolour paint and half acrylic paint. This was to get the properties of both paints, the acrylic flows nicely and is quite opaque, but once its dry cannot be re-wet. Whereas the watercolour paint can be re-moistened when it is dry.
This design is painted on fake nails, over a base of white matte polish. I find if your base is high gloss then the paint doesn’t want to stick. You can see more of Megan’s work on her facebook page or her Etsy store. Back soon with “watercolour”.
