Tips & Tricks: How To Do the Hairspray Mani

Hello Lovelies,

Here's another "how-to" post for you: The hair-spray water marble mani. So cool. The results are always different but always very interesting.

You will need:

~ two nail colours. One main base and one for the hair spray water dip.
~ hair spray (or perfume, spray-able rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer)
~ water (room temp, preferably filtered but not absolutely necessary)
~ acetone
~ tooth picks or orange (cuticle) sticks
~ cotton swabs
~ small brush

  • paint your base and let dry fully.
  • Fill a small container with the water. It needs to be big enough to dip your fingers into.
  • Add a few drops of your second polish to the water.
  • Spritz with hair spray. This will cause a splitting or tearing effect on the polish.
  • Doing one or two nails at a time, place your nail over the pattern you want to pick up. Do not move the nails around.
  • Use a toothpick to remove the rest of the polish from around the nails then lift from water.
  • Repeat for the remaining nails. Clean polish from skin using swabs dipped in acetone. Use the brush to clean closer to the cuticle area.
  • Add top coat and ADMIRE.

Colours used, l to r:

Zoya : Nimue, Arielle, Brittany (Satin)
Seche Vite top coat
