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. :)
