I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I've got a manicure to share with you that features the soon to be releasing Glam Polish Gobblefunk Shimmers. The shimmers, while can be worn alone with just a couple of coats are also said to be great for nail art, so I couldn't wait to try them out as such. With a few ideas rolling around in my head, I decided to attempt the water spotting technique first. I use the technique so rarely since I always end up making a huge mess, but I think in this case it was well worth it...
For the manicure I started out with a silver base of Pure Ice Silver Mercedes before one at a time water spotting and layering Glam Polish Whoopsy-Splunkers, Gloriumptious, Phiz-Whizzing, Time-Twiddler, Splitzwiggled over it. The result doesn't look like a typical water spotted manicure, but I love the random messy, almost splatter appearing result.
If you are unfamiliar with the water spotted technique, I urge you to check out YouTube for the many tutorials featured there. It is a bit messy since it involves water, but definitely easier than water marble and lots of fun. I've never been able to get any polish (cream or shimmer) to 'spot' perfectly, but I've accepted that fate and instead look forward to the randomness of the result...
A fun explosion of color and shimmer...
As I mentioned, the manicure features 5 soon to be released Glam Polish shades, the official release info is below:
