Sooooo I've been wanting to try out water spotted nails for forever and couldn't figure out when/how to do it, until the inspiration to do these finally struck like lightning! This idea is sort of along the lines of 'ripped skin' tattoos; I used an opaque nude polish to water spot on top of a silver holo, like my insides are made of rainbows (because they are). The end result is so much sweeter and prettier than I expected, so while it was a failed idea from my brain, it looks lovely!!
The water spotting technique is fairly easy in concept, especially if you've tried watermarbling before. I used Makeup Store Greta as my base color, then water spotted with CND Perfectly Bare. I used painter's tape to keep my hands from getting messy, then made a bullseye in a cup of purified water with only CND Perfectly Bare, spritzed some perfume in, waited for it to make cool patterns, then dunked my fingerbits! My only issue is that I used a perfume that I didn't mind wasting (i.e. didn't like all that much) and now of course my hand is soaked in it.... Good job, self! It wasn't quite enough bling yet, so I threw some rhinestones and chrome mini-tips on and all was excellent. In the end, refined glam bling that looks like lacy, fancy wedding nails.
