Hi! Today marks the arrival of a fun new nail art group that I'm excited to be part of. Nailvengers Assemble is a group made up of Sammy from The Nailasaurus, Lucy from Lucy's Stash, Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All, Amelia from xameliax, and myself! Since we all met each other at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards we've been thinking about starting a group, and here it is!
At the end of every month, the five of us will be posting nail art of a particular theme. Our very first theme is New Year, New Technique, so we're all trying something new to us!
For my new technique, I've chosen a spray marble. The idea is to blob polish onto the surface of water (as with a water marble) but instead of drawing patterns in it, you spray it with hair spray. It was a bit of a risk because me and marbling do NOT get on. Not a bit. I thought this would be easier than a full water marble, and it was, but barely! Every time I sprayed the polish with hair spray it just flew off to the side or shrivelled. In the end I tried warm (almost hot) water, and it worked better. It's still not exactly as I pictured, but I like the effect it created.
I used Barry M Plum as a base, and H&M Golden Treasure to marble with.
