Water Spotted nails

Initially I wanted to do water spotted nails with pink, but that did not work out and I ended up using this shimmery red with which i tested. I learnt this fro YouTube from ‘cutepolish’. I’ll provide the link down below for the tutorial. It is a technique very similar to water marbling, but slightly differs in the procedure and the outcome is TOTALLY different but awesome โค I hope you guys like this ๐Ÿ™‚

I mattified the effect as I didn't want it to be glossy but I'm not sure if it's seen I mattified the effect as I didn’t want it to be glossy but I’m not sure if it’s seen

I was going through YouTube ( My guru :D ) to find a DIY matte polish. I knew the usual method. For those of you who don't know, it is mixing clear polish with cornstarch and applying it as a top coat. But I came across this interesting technique, I'll link the video down below, where the freshly applied nail polish (i.e. the nail polish should be wet if this technique needs to work) is placed over steam for sometime, it turns matte. It did work! :)  The link to where I found matte using Steam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12gCriboXXs

My thumb, index and middle finger came out ok-ok ( They kinda became 'tested' nails :D ) Finally, the ring and pinky came out well.. *relief* :D
