Before you get started, you should read the following to find out what are the rules you should follow and what are the steps you need to avoid in order to make a beautiful watercolour painting.

In answering these questions, we were assisted by Andrea Szalay “Norka”, an international nail art teacher, professional consultant and trainer who professionally applies and teaches watercolour painting in everyday life.

What should you pay attention to when using watercolour?

  1. Use thinly the paint developed for decoration, as it is not a top coat.
  2. Always keep the surface you are painting clean and matte.
  3. Dilute the watercolour paint with water.
  4. After finishing the work, it is worth covering the nails decorated with watercolour painting in two layers.
  5. Only paint on light surfaces with it because you will not see the watercolour properly on a dark base colour.

What not to do when decorating with watercolour?

  1. Do not use watercolour too thick.
  2. After drying, do not grasp and touch the pattern as it will smear. The watercolour dissolves on all moisture.
  3. Do not touch the surface before painting, as the paint will not adhere to it.
  4. Do not use white for color mixing, as it takes the shine of the paint and is not suitable for shading.
  5. Do not use the paint in more than one coat as it will dissolve itself so the previously painted pattern will blur.
