Waterspotted Nails - Tutorial for Nail It Magazine

I just wanted to share a tutorial that I created for Nail It magazine! It shows how I created the waterspotted nails from a few weeks ago for The Lacquer Legion challenge. I hope you like it! :)

Waterspotted Nails - Tutorial

You will need:
  • China Glaze - Holly-Day
  • Dance Legend - Wazowski
  • cup of water
  • disinfectant spray
  • toothpick
  • nail polish remover
  • top coat

1. Paint your nails with your base color. I used two coats of China Glaze - Holly-Day. You can add tape around your nails to prevent a mess.

2. Add a drop of your multichrome polish into the cup of water.

3. Spray it with the disinfectant spray. You can vary the distance of the spray and the waiting time until dipping in your nail to create different effects!

4. Dip your nail into the water and remove the polish on the surface of the water with a toothpick.

5. This is what it looks like without using tape. Time for clean up!

6. Add top coat and you're done!


  1. It's very pretty and the colours are nice :-) Love the DL polishes :-)

  2. This looks beautiful! I love the colours :)

  3. I think you did it, you managed to throw my favorite nail art from you off the throne and replace it with this one, this is GORGEOUS!

  4. Brilliant! I need to try it.. Just need to get my hands on some spray sanitizer :)

  5. This is amazing! Your colour combination is gorgeous too -looks like an evil villain mani to me :-)

  6. Beautiful nails!!!! Where would I be able to find the disinfectant spray in the UK??? Thanks.

    1. Thank you! Maybe in a pharmacy? You could also try hairspray or perfume instead.

  7. Meine deutsch ist Nicht so gut, so I will post in English. I figured out that this is an antiseptic, but I couldn't get the spray pattern right. I also tried a toothbrush splatter, and that didn't work. Was my nail polish in the water not think enough maybe? Hairspray and perfume didn't work very well. I'm in a very dry climate.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post, I appreciate it a lot!
