V.I.P.A. with Jacki from Adventures in Acetone

Bom dia meus amores!
Good morning lovelies!

Hoje eu trago a vocês uma grande inspiração, a esmaltólatra que foi o "empurrãozinho" que eu precisava para criar o meu blog, há 2 anos e quase 4 meses. Foi quando comentei em um tutorial de water marble que ela fez. Ela foi super simpática e me incentivou dizendo que com prática e persistência eu seria capaz sim. E assim decidi criar o meu blog. Com vocês, a Jacki do Adventures in Acetone:
Today I have a big inspiration to introduce you, the NPA who "pushed" me to create my own blog about 2 years and 4 months ago. It was when I commented on a water marble tutorial she had done. She was so sympathetic and encouraged saying that with practice and persistence I'd be able to do it as well. So, I decided to create my blog. I leave you with Jacki from Adventures in Acetone:


Hello, GioNails readers! I’m Jacki, and you may know me from Adventures In Acetone. Thank you so much for having me, Giovanna! I am so honored to be invited onto your blog as a V.I.P.A! For my manicure, I’ve done one of my favorite new-to-me techniques: spray marbling! If you aren’t familiar with the term, I’ll explain it a bit! You put a few drops of nail polish in your water cup as you would for water marbling, but then you spray it with rubbing alcohol (or spray hand sanitizer, hair spray, body spray, etc.). The polish gets weird spots in it from the spray, and then you dip your finger as you would for water marbling. I love doing a couple of different colored layers to create an interesting effect. You can mix different finishes like metallics and cremes, shimmers, etc!


For this spray marble nail art look, I started out with 2 coats of OPI Mod About You. Once that was dry, I dropped about 4 drops of OPI Push & Pur-Pull onto the water surface in my cup. While it was still wet, I quickly sprayed rubbing alcohol once or twice into the cup to reveal the spots. Because it creates such a random pattern, I was able to dip 2 nails at once. After I finished all of my nails with the purple layer, I repeated the steps using OPI My Dogsled Is A Hybrid. I used HKGirl Top Coat, followed by OPI Matte Top Coat to give it a matte finish. (I do the quick dry top coat first because matte top coats always seem to smear nail art for me!)

What do you think of this spray marble look? Are you a fan of this technique? I really love how quick and easy it is to create as a full mani— as I am often too busy to do intricate nail art these days! If you use tape, peel off glue, or vaseline on the skin around your nails it will cut down on the clean up time as well! Thank you so much for reading! And a big thank you to Giovanna for having me!

Jacki, mais uma vez, muitíssimo obrigada pela honra de tê-la como convidada aqui no blog. Me sinto muito orgulhosa mesmo.
Guuuuuuuys, what a gorgeous mani she made, right?! Here's another technique I have to try. Don't forget to follow her on Instagram (@adventuresinacetone) and like Adventures In Acetone Facebook page.
Jacki, once again, thank you so much for giving me the honour of having you as a guest. I'm very very proud.

Um super beijo a todas e até a próxima.
Big kiss and see you all next time.
