Broken Water

Waterspotting! I don’t know if that’s what its officially called, but I like it. I’ve seen designs like this (where you spread the polish on water but spray it instead of marble it) for a while, but every time I saw them, they claimed you need to use spritz perfume to separate the polish. Then I wandered on a pinterest post where -low and behold- they used HAIRSPRAY! Now, that I have. And I never use. And it’s awesome 😀

The mani that inspired this was doing a green multichrome-on-green creme design, so I did that on one of my nails and used my other varied multichromes on the others. Oddly…only the green really separated well and stood out from its base color! So now I know why they used green and I guess I’ll have to do this again with green-only. Oops!

For some reason, Mutagen didn’t want to separate and Chic Reloaded separated too well. Maybe I should have just done all of them over black…or layered them. Hrmmm, thoughts for the future!

So yah, this is a bit odd-looking, but it was fun to do! Hairspray for the nail art win!

  1. My water spotted nails always turn out kind of strange too. I really like how your middle finger turned out though!

  2. Wow, I’ve never seen waterspotting with multichromes. It looks awesome, well done.

  3. rubbing alcohol works great for this too!

  4. I think these look great. Mine were not so successful.

  5. It’d very pretty!!
