Guest Post: Ashley of Ashley is PolishAddicted


Today's guest post is from Ashley of Ashley is PolishAddicted

Hello! I am Ashley from Ashley is PolishAddicted and I am so pleased to be guest posting for you today! Ida has been one of my favorite bloggers and nail artists for awhile so I was honored when she asked me. I knew I wanted to do some sort of fun nail art because I love looking at Ida's nail art Instagram, especially all of her neon skittles. So, I decided to do some neon skittles of my own!



If you follow me, you know I am a huge fan of spray marbles. They are fun and easy, and sometimes you just want something fun and easy. I used Elevation Polish Cerro Torre 2 topped with Elevation Yeti the Stone Warrior as my base. Once that was dry I protected my skin with Girly Bits Border Patrol. I then used a different Girly Bits neon from the Hoop, There It Is! Collection on each nail. (I will list each polish below.) 


To do the spray marble you set up like you are doing a water marble but only drop one color into the water. Once it spreads, spray it with isopropyl alcohol (I have heard of people using all sorts of things, hairspray, body spray, etc.) and once it separates, dip your finger as you would with a regular water marble. That's all there is to it! Once it was dry I topped it with a quick dry top coat and then with Girly Bits Polish Matte'rs because I do so love a matte finish, especially with neons.




Neons used:
Thumb: I've Got High Hoops
Index: These Hips Don't Lie
Middle: Hip Hoop Hooray!
Ring: Hoop! There It Is
Pinkie: Hooperchondriac 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you done any spray marbles? If not, I highly recommend giving it a shot! I love trying different colors and layering different combos, the options are endless. 

Thank you again to Ida for having me share my love of polish with her lovely readers!

  1. This looks awesome Ashley! And it sounds like a kind of marbling that even those of us who are unskilled can do!
