Water Spotted by Alchemical Water Spotted by Alchemical
Sorry I've been away! I moved recently so things have been crazy. I'm back!

So, I've been wanting a bottle of OPI Black Spotted like crazy but there's no away in Hell I'm paying what people want for it on the secondary market.

But just a few days ago I saw cutepolish's tutorial: [link] and decided to give it a try. Worked wonderfully! No more desire to blow $50 on a single bottle of polish.

I did have a bit of trouble with this, and admit it could have been done a little better. I'd like for the black to be a bit more opaque, for one. But this was a great first try, I think!

Are you familiar with water marbling? Same theory, but spray the surface with hand sanitizer before dipping.

Lovely, I've been wanting to try this out myself, but I need to get my hands on one of those spray bottles of sanitizer first...

I had to try a few stores before finding some. Someone told me hair spray works too, though. So maybe try that?
