So, I follow a lot of nail bloggers because nail art fascinates me! I love doing nail art, except sometimes I can run out of patience. There are a lot of new techniques and ways to do your nails now a days it’s hard to keep up with it all. I remember trying to do water-marbling, but there is soooo much that plays into it… like the temperature of the water, how you swirl the pattern, the type of polish you use!

Maybe one day, I’ll go back to water-marbling and I’ll try to conquer it but for now…. Let’s go another route! The oh so famous, pinterest inspired hairspray technique. The hairspray marble effect looks like marble! Who would have thought?! It’s simple and not that hard to pull off!Okay so here is how it goes…  Not all of these pictures are mine btw, I forgot to take a picture at some parts!

FIRST: Paint your nails a base color!

SECOND: Get the second color ready, and put a drop into a small container of water. Spray your hairspray about 1 inch away after the color spreads on the surface of the water.

THIRD: Find your favorite part of the of the spray design and dip your nail into the design.

FOURTH: Do a bit of cleaning up around the cuticles and seal with a topcoat.

Here’s my final result!
