Trending Now: Watercolor Manicures ...


There’s always something new when it comes to doing your nails.

Move over nail art, because watercolor manicures are the new kid on the block.

I’m one of those people that doesn’t feel completely put together until my nails are done, so it’s always fun to try something new.

If you’re the same way and are dying to make your nails stand out, it’s time to try the watercolor manicure trend.

Here’s everything you need to know to make the look work for you.

Have fun!

1. What is a Watercolor Manicure?

You know how a watercolor painting is diluted and sort of see-through, right?

Much like watercolor paints, the polishes you use for a watercolor manicure go on bright, but are a bit clear so you can see through them just a little bit.2

They give you just the most subtle tinge of color on your nails, but come in all sorts of shades.

Sound like something you want to try?

2. Where Can I Buy the Colors?

As this trend continues to grow in popularity, chances are you’ll be able to find the watercolor polishes at just about any drugstore at any price.

Right now, Yves St.

Laurent and OPI make some great choices in a range of colors so you can grab a bottle and give it a try.2

Look for red, orange, pink and purple.

Which color would you love to use first?

3. What Kind of Commitment Are Watercolor Nails?

The great thing about watercolor nails is that you don’t have to commit to tons of upkeep or maintenance.

The colors are just bright enough to give you a fantastic manicure, but light enough that chips and dings aren’t totally noticeable so you don’t have to worry about constant touch ups.

Watercolor nail colors are similar to lip tints.

Just slap in the color and go without having to repair throughout the day.
