Not your traditional water colour nails. I decided to go with "the colour of water" inspired nails. What I thought of was the way the sea sparkles when the sun hits it. It's a mix of colours with blue/ teal shining through the most.
I used Essence the gel nail polish in 25 Prince charming as my base. This is a turquoise with blue/green shimmer. On top of that I added a coat of L.A Colors Color craze 653 which is a blue tinted base with green and teal glitters. I used this over Sinful Colors Rise and Shine before and I think it looks better but seeing as I was adding on so much glitter I didn't see the point in changing it.
Finally I added a coat of Essence nail art special effect topper in 10 glorious aquarius and a topcoat which made the job of this mani. Glorious Aquarius has a sprinkle of small hologrpahic glitter in it so it sparkled beautifully. I wasn't loving it before this step but after it was really transformed. These pictures were taken at night so ignore the redness of my skin. That is all the cameras fault!
