Nailvengers assemble spray marble nail art

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.
