Aussie Nails Monday- water spotting technique.

Hi there everyone! today for Aussie nails Monday we have chosen a technique which I had not tried before. The water spotting technique. This technique involves isopropanol and water to create a marble kind of effect.
I start with a cup of water at room temp and drop in a single drop of nail polish. I'm my case I used kiko 628 which is a metallic gold. then you let it spread in the water and gently spray a little of the isopropanol on the polish/water, watch it separate then dip you nail into the water so the polish sticks on your nail. it is similar to water marbling.I will have to do a video when I get 5 mins!!!
For my mani i first painted my nails with zoya song then a top coat of clear before water spotting. my feature nail was zoya ziv and topped with femme fatale sparkling sands.

I like the technique but clean us is a nightmare!

Make sure you check out everyone below for their manis too!!!

Until next time......
