This mani was inspired by a comment in a group I am in about what other colours you could use for water spotting aside from black – of course you can use any colours! I decided to do a mani using something alternative as an example of what it might look like – I have to say though my cheap perfume is on its last dregs so the spray didn’t work as well as normal. I have since picked up a spray bottle from Boots which I am planning on filling with 99.9% alcohol to use for my next water spotting session! For this mani I stared with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow – I really need to pick up another bottle of this as I only have about 1/3rd left. If you want a cheaper alternative Barrym Matt White is just as good, I personally prefer the brush on the OPI though.
Yep, my cuticles are still pretty dry, so please forgive that! I decided to use turquoise again and paired it with a peach colour because these colours have that same South Western feel I think and are very “springy”. So this is China Glaze Aquadelic and China Glaze Peachy Keen – they both spread really well in the water and are fairly opaque on their own which I think really helps for water spotted, the white base really makes these colours pop but I think they’d look great over other colours too.
For an accent nail it was a simple task of arranging some teeny tiny triangle rhinestones and some square ones – I use a small bit of topcoat and a dotting tool to place them into tacky polish and then float a generous coat of topcoat over the top to seal them in to place. I am pleased to report that I once again have HK Girl Topcoat in my life, this is my holy grail topcoat. I will let you know which topcoat I am using for which mani – as I think for manis I won’t be wearing too long I will use a cheaper option. Got to savour theee preeeccciioooussss. As you can see from the first colour I just alternated which finger had which colour on for the water spotting cause I like to mix it up, especially when I do a mani on both hands.
