Nothing to Disclose
Happy Halloween Week! Yes, I celebrate it the entire week. Okay, FINE. The entire month. I like Halloween. What?
So this weekend, HPB (Hobby Polish Bloggers) is getting together to post our Halloween manicures and there's a link-up at the bottom where you can see all the great Halloween manis from the other members.
Hobby Polish Bloggers is a group for bloggers who blog primarily just for fun or more casually. It's a resource for feedback, support and guidance on your current blog or information on how to get your blog started.
Today I decided to do a simple spray marble. My long-time readers know I have let water marbles defeat me time after time and while I haven't given up that good fight just yet, it's nice to do a quick and easy fool-proof mani once in a while.
Well, NEARLY fool-proof. When using a matte top coat over nail art, be sure and use a regular top coat first that doesn't smear. Matte top coats will almost always smear. Oops!
I've used a base of Zoya Rocha and spray marbled with black and purple (Kiko #292). Slap on a quick coat of matte top coat (I used Wet n Wild WildShine Matte Top Coat for 99¢ and it's just as good as my former favorite, Butter London Matte Finish) and BAM! Happy Halloween!
You've probably seen tutorials on "spray marbles" already but I used distilled water at room temperature, put one drop of polish and sprayed it quickly with just plain rubbing alcohol from one of those little spray bottles you get in the "travel section" at Walmart. Once it makes a cool design, I dip my nail in like a water marble. Protip: You NEED tape or glue or whatever you normally use or cleanup is just as bad as you'd have with a standard water marble.
What do you think? Is this something you would try?
Thanks for checking it out and remember to have a look at the great manis linked below!
