Water spotted nail art with pink, blue, black and white nail polish

Hello hello! I'm having a fabulous day, and I hope all of you are too! I have some fabulous nails to share with you to make your day more wonderful either way! :) Water spotting is one of my fav techniques - it's so easy! And with bright colours like these you'll have an awesome final look perfect for spring!

The water spotted technique is really simple - you put a few drops of one colour in your water glass (like you would for a water marble) and then you spritz it with alcohol. I have a small travel hair spray bottle I fill with part water and part rubbing alcohol for this. Then once you've dispersed the polish to your liking you just stick your nails in, just like for a water marble (but way easier). Repeat with different colours and you're done!

I started out with a base of black (Sinful Colors Black on Black) and white (Sinful Colors Snow Me White) and then got out my cup of water, rubbing alcohol in a spritz bottle and coloured polishes!

I used a few different colours for this one - Sinful Colors Boom Boom, Sinful Colors Sail La Vie, Sinful Colors Black on Black and China Glaze Travel in Colour (which is a sheer iridescent top coat that didn't really work as well as I expected - it's all the parts that look kind of bumpy but glittery).

In love with these! I think doing the design as accent nails with solid black for contrast was perfect.

I debated putting something on the black (gems or caviar beads or something) but decided against it at the last minute. Do you think that was the right choice?? I felt it might be too much if I added more to the look. 

Let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting! xx
