Polish Days Something New Theme: Water Marble 10

Water Marble Nail Art

The theme for Polish Days this month is “Something New”.  I have long been wanting to try water marbling, so this was the perfect time to give it a shot.  Wow… this technique is very challenging!!!  I have a whole new respect for nail artists that have mastered water marbling.  I watched several videos on YouTube to see how the technique works.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

I really wanted to do this flower technique, but alas I didn’t have much luck at creating fancy designs my first time around.  In retrospect I think I needed to use a tool that’s much smaller/thinner like a needle to make the designs in the polish.  I was trying to use an orange stick and the polish kept lifting up out of the water when I pulled on it.

I used some cheaper polishes to do this since.  The colors used were Jordana White Pearl, Electric Blue, Sapphire, and Purple Punch.  The designs didn’t turn out as elaborate as I had hoped, but I will definitely try this again sometime soon!

BTW, if you follow me on Facebook you might have already seen this design since I posted a sneak peek last week.  :)
