So after watching about 100 Youtube videos, I give you my first ever (EVAH!) water marble.
Let me tell you, water marbling makes a hell of a mess. I taped off my fingers and did all the little tricks that they said you should do, and polish was everywhere. What a clean up job this was.
The three colors that I used for this manicure are Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Lavender Cloud, Essie Lights (pink), and Maybelline Color Show Onyx Rush. I started with a base of Lavender Cloud a white polish with subtle lavender purple leanings.
This polish was a bit gloopy in application (gloopy is totally a word and I know you know what I mean) and left some patches. I think next time, using very thin coats, I could avoid this problem. However, since I knew I would be covering this up with my water marble I wasn't to overly concerned with my how my base looked.
Next I dropped alternating colors black, pink, lavender into my water, swirled them together and....
this was my end result. I really enjoyed this color combo, I feel like the light and dark of Lavender Cloud and Onyx Rush really stand out against the bright pink of Lights. My personal favorite design happened on the thumb.
Which design is your favorite? Do you like to water marble? I'd love to hear what you have to say.
