Mina's Simple Manis - Water Spotted Nails

This week had to start with Mina's Simple Manis because (1) the rain throughout the weekend made me grump and lazy (2) seeing I didn't do much except going to the movies, Monday was getting on my nerves.

But, grumpiness and nerves apart, I really like how this one turned out. 
It's indeed simple - I did this one on my Cinderella Hand again - and the effect is gorgeous. All you have to do is choose two contrasting colours and voilà.

For my base colour, I went with:

Nails4'Us The Empress
This one is in my top ten favourite polishes :)

I love how this polish can shift from a really-dark-almost-black purple to an iridescent shimmery vibrant one.

An upclose of the lovely shimmery surface :)

And here's the end result of my mani, using the wateer spotted technique :)

I chose to pair it with one of my favourite gold polishes: Dourado Disse Ela, from the Portuguese brand Inocos.

Contrary to watermarble - where so much can go wrong - I felt all was safe with this water technique.
Simple and effortless with an incredible end result.

What do you think of this technique? Have you tried it before? 
If not, I think you should definitely give it a go ;)

Let me know what's your opinion on this one and if you've been liking the different hand poses and all :)
Wishing you all a most cosy and fantastic evening, lovelies.

Hugs & Kissies,

  5. Love the effect and combination, great work!

  6. The result looks incredible, good job!

  7. Wow! The pattern is just awsome and the colours sooo lovely. I've tried it just once and you can see my result on my blog... under "the first time" tag. It looked more like a map, just intrestingly shaped blobs... i have to try it again soon. Much fun.

    Well done, anyway! :-)

    1. It is great fun, yes!! Thank you for your sweet comment, Moni - would love to see you try it again! ;)

    2. :-)
      Me too... it's so much fun dunking your fingers in sticky colour goo and see what comes out :o)
      I'll see that I'll do some soooooon. In the moment there is a lot going on here... and I've yetnto publish my "hello spring" mani no 2...
      And I've planned to show some things about my home town/city Berlin. Been around some "thing" today. But that comes later this week.

    3. Can't wait for all that :D


You just made this girl smile! Thank you for your comment and for sharing your thoughts with me! :)
