My First (successful) Water Marble!!

How exciting is this?! I was finally able to do a decent water marble! One of my friends was learning how to do water marbling at beauty school last week and she asked if I wanted to get together and practice, so we did this past weekend. Here is the result:


I used Zoya Mira, Sally Hansen Caribbean Coral, and Essie Absolutely Shore for this marble. Caribbean Coral photographed WAY too bright and red; it is very bright in person, but it's more pink-toned than red. The nails that aren't marbled have three coats of Absolutely Shore on them. I was pretty happy with my first three nails, but my thumb (below, which I did last) was definitely the best! I can't wait to try this again now that I've gotten the hang of it!


Here is a photo of the fake nails that my friend practiced on. I'm thinking that I have to try the gray and purple one next!

  2. Congrats! I have a # of muddy messes from my attempts. It's hard to get it down. I am better at spatters and water colouring so far.

  4. Woohoo! It looks fantastic, I love the colors that you chose! It took me a while to get the hang of marbling and even still, I'm not always satisfied with the results.
