Nail Art: Black and White Hairspray Nails

Hi everyone!

It feels like forever since I've had some nails on here! I thought I would try a new technique today known to many as hairspray nails.

The two colours I used for this were OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Sally Hansen Black Out. Instead of hairspray, I used Isopropyl Alcohol which did the job well enough for me.
My MOST IMPORTANT TIP for doing these nails, or any watermarble nails is having room temperature water. I had tried (and failed!) so many times at this technique because I was using water straight from the tap, which was still too cold or warm for this technique.
I've been using this new top coat from Essence, and I am honestly pretty impressed with it. I grabbed this at Priceline when I was in Aussie for a few bucks, and it's been my go-to lately. I definitely recommend getting this if you're ever at an Essence stand!

Have you tried hairspray nails?
