How to do watercolor flowers on your nails

Nail polish is likely your go-to product when it comes to decorating nails, but did you know that watercolor paints work just as well? The best thing about watercolor paints is that they do most of the work for you. Just paint on the desired shapes and the paint itself fades and drips to give an artistic flair to the design.
