Studded Spotting…

So I just love this technique! ‘Water Spotting’ is super easy – fill a little tub of water, drop some polish in, spray some perfume onto it, dip your nails in and voila! I’m not sure why I chose this colour combination, I don’t think it works particularly well actually. I then added some studs just to liven it up a little.

So I don’t actually mind spiders and unfortunately I don’t really understand people who are, it’s a bit silly – they’re only wee spiders! Mind you, I’m lucky to live in a country where they never get big, I think if I was to be confronted with a truly large spider I’d maybe be having second thoughts on catching it to throw it out the window.

Anyway, I thought it would be cool to use the ‘water spotted’ or ‘spray marble’ technique as that gives a sort of webby look already. I then topped it with an actual spider web, and I really like how it turned out!

Second Attempt…

So I think this came out a lot better than my first attempt. It’s such a fun technique, seeing the polish freak out after you spray it and just seeing what kind of patterns appear. I love it! I’ve also been informed that it’s called ‘Water Spotting’ which sounds way better.

First attempt at ‘Spray Marble’…

So I always kind of fancied trying this technique, it was around for ages but then it kind of died off and unfortunately I’ve forgotten it’s name.  I tried to Google it and the best I could come up with is ‘Spray Marble’? Anybody else know what it’s called? It’s the technique of plopping some polish into water, then sprayed it with some perfume or something to make it split up, etc.

I wasn’t so impressed with my first try, it didn’t look as amazing as other peoples results, but it was kinda fun! Maybe the blue polish wasn’t the best to use, you know how some polishes work better than others in water? So I’m going to give it another go. Also I’ve broken my nails again, look how short my index and middle nails are, bleurgh. Seriously though, my index nail just doesn’t seem to grow as well as the others or as strong, does anyone else have one ‘problem’ nail?
