Gouache Nail Color + Color Blind?!

April 23, 2012

No, I'm not talking about a new nail polish brand, I'm referring to using Gouache pigments for nail art. :) Gouache is a more pigmented watercolor, or a more watery type of poster paint. When it dries, it gives off a more darker color. Anyways, I had an idea to use gouache as my nail polish because I wanted to do a nail art that got me so intrigued but I don't have any nail polish on me. :) I have this pigment around because I used to paint when I was in school. This also dries fast, though not as fast as a nail polish.

The nail art that  wanted to do consisted of dots which are easy enough to make... The design looked like you're taking a color blindness test. hihihi! here are the pictures and the link of where I got the idea..

looks like random dots right? here is the colored version...

Cool Right?? :)

And here is my take for the said inspiration...

I put in the letter n cause it's the initial to my name, nicole. I was gonna do this design on all of my nails, unfortunately the white gouache was too watery and I can't do my dots right... I'll do this again when I have my own nail polish collection. :) What do you think? I give kudos to Goose of Goose'sglitter for her seriously cool nail art design that's easy to make. :)

These are the items I used:
Gouache Color
hair pins and paperclips for dotting

What do you think guys?? :)
