I finally tried water marbling on my nails. When I first watched a video on it a few months ago it looked easy. Yea right! lol. Now I understand why they say practice make perfect with this. I only water marbled my ring fingers since this was my first time and I'm just getting used to it.
Even though my first attempt wasn't the greatest because I don't really like the design I choose to dunk my finger into. I'm just happy to have finally accomplished it. *Next nail project, stamping!! I have the kit already, but that's another thing you have to practice at to get right. But its worth it for our nails, right? lol. Okay onto my nails:
I used two coats of Pacific Blue by Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear as the base on all my nails (except for the 2 ring fingers, those are water marbled) then I layered one coat of Radiant by Revlon. Radiant is a bright blue/turquoise glitter in a clear base. There's also larger hex glitter in sliver, light blue and teal. It really reminds me of a mermaids tail. Very pretty, the formula actually went on pretty easily. I thought bc of the large glitter flexs it would give me a hard time with the application but it didn't. If you haven't noticed, Revlon's polishes have become one of my favorites.
Here are close ups of the two nails I did the water warbling on. I wish I had made a better design but at least I know for next time.
For the water marbling I painted two coats of Snow me White by Sinful Colors and let it dry completely. I heard that if you paint your nails white it will make the colors you use for the water marbling pop. Then I used 3 colors for the marbling, all by Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear, Pacific Blue, Blue Me Away and Celeb City. I found that SH Xtreme Wear polishes work well for this.
I will definitely will be trying water marbling again soon and hopefully next time I will do better.
Have you guys tried water marbling, if so do you have any tips on making better designs?
