First Successful Water Marble!

Hello everyone :)
I have a very exciting post for you all today! I finally managed to do a water marble successfully!! :D I'm so happy I could cry :P After seeing so many beautiful water marbles on my blog roll recently I thought I needed to attempt it again, so after reading a few new tutorials I gave it a go this morning. Here's what happened...
I only attempted an accent nail this time as I wasn't feeling too brave :P I used Sally Hansen Pink Boa for the hot pink, OPI Alpine Snow for the white and Hot Looks Candy Floss for the light pink. Overall I'm very pleased with how it turned out, although I would use a white base next time as the tip of my nail is quite sheer, not as sheer as this photo shows though :)
For this attempt I dug my dads long forgotten Brita Filter out from the back of the cupboard and used filtered water. This seems to work like a charm as it's the only time I've been able to get a decent marbled look. Usually when I try to water marble I pull my nail out and end up with a thick gloopy mess :( But I can do it now! I honestly can't wait to try this out in different colours and as a full mani! :)

Do you like water marbled nails? What colours suit this style best? let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading :)

  1. Nice job! The colors you used are lovely together. I love water marbles, but I'm content to look at them on you all. :) Ah, maybe I'll try it... they do look mighty tempting.

    1. Thank you :) They are lovely but so frustrating when you can't get them to turn out right :P

  2. I have tried marbling multiple times, but have never been pleased with the results. Maybe I should try again sometime. Yours turned out lovely.

    1. Thanks :) You should definitely try again! I'm sure you'll get good results :)
