To celebrate the new addition of the Twitch Creative channel, the team began The Joy of Painting marathon on Oct. 29, Bob Ross’ birthday.

A little late because I didn’t have the time to edit my photos prior to the day, but here they are. I’ve gotta say, it’s probably one of my favorite manicures. And longest lasting! It’s still completely chip free after a week. I recently purchased those Sally Hansen nail polish strips to try out. While…
Bowties will always be cool. <3
Phew, that title’s a doozy. Anyway, on to the boring, technical stuff. I used this watercolor manicure tutorial from Bellezza Bee, but modified it slightly to get the look I wanted. I’ll probably do my own walkthrough at a later date, after I’m finished with the decal tutorial, which has been photographed and just needs…
