Water Spotted Fail

For those who miss some indecency and mess in my blog - here you are, a creepy manicure : ) You know the situation when the mani idea looks so nice in your head, and after you implement your vision, you glance at your nails and say "ewww". That was the case. Meet the great and horrible water spotted manicure : )

If you wonder about the technique: I was using this tutorial. By the way, instead of hand sanitiser you can take whatever spray that contains alcohol. I grabbed my dad's old deodorant, I hope he never finds out, hehe.

What's wrong in here? Right, the colours. My idea was to use black over bright coral (Orly Pixy Stix), but the black didn't want to spot, so I used dark purple - Andreia #96. If in reality it was not sooo bad, on the photos it looks like splattered blood :{

And I don't know why, but the size of the dots varied a lot when I was spraying. It depends on the spraying intensity and distance, so I didn't learn to control all that yet. Water-created manicures are still something I have to practise in :)

  2. Maybe you imagined this manicure differently and that's why you don't like it, but I find it really beautiful!

    1. Thank you :) I was thinking to try the splatter manicure as a decal, water spotting is not more messy than water marbling :)

  5. ok, let me be honest, it does look a little like blood lol but I love the idea of water spotted nails, and you only made me want more to try this kind of technique.
    anyways, don't be sad, with all the blood thing I still think the manicure is wearable :)

  7. What's wrong in here? Seriously? Nothing is wrong here!!!!!!! They look amazing and I love the subtle colour difference instead of pink vs black for example. And I also like that they are not perfectly the same one to the other!

  8. I find this post extremely amusing - sorry! I so recognize myself in that - a mani looks one way in your head, but completely different in real life :D
    I don't think it's eew, but I think I would have liked it better with black instead of purple :)

    1. Hehe, I'm so glad that you understand me :D Believe me, I tried black firstly, but it just wouldn't dissolve into the spots, I don't know why... so I had to search for alternatives, who knew that this purple would be so bright :{
