There are no words to describe the anguish and frustrations I felt when attempting water marbling. I had a beautiful base mani of Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely in Love on from yesterday (new all-time fave) that got ruined! I tried to water marble using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Concrete, CG Turned Up Turquoise, and CG Refresh-mint. DISASTER. I think I had one nail that could have passed, but wanted to try again.
This time I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Concrete, and Ulta Plum Perfect and Blue Streak. Same results. I didn’t want to waste any more polish so I just have a water marbled accent nail to show you. I suspect that this is one of those things that once the whole thing would have been cleaned up it would have turned out awesome. Kindof like when I stamp: that first nail always looks meh but when you are all done and top coat it, it looks kick ass.
Needless to say, I love the look of water marbling but I am a very impatient person so I don’t think this is something I will try in the near future. I can’t wait to see the other girls’s water marbles though, I have seen so many beautiful water marbles out there.
I just realized now that maybe my links to the other girls’s posts haven’t been working. I am so sorry about that. Let me know if these work.
