Water marbling anyone??

I gave this up a couple of years ago because I thought it was just too much work to not get similar results. Of course lately some people have been posting beautiful water marble manicures. So I figured I'd give it another shot. Not exactly as pretty or neat as it looked in my head. But still, I figured it was a good enough go. I may even try some more water marbling later on. But for now, I've had my fill. I used China Glaze Ingrid, Lighthouse, Sunset Sail and OPI Ski Teal We Drop, Austin-Tatious Turquoise and Illamasqua Load.

You can see where the water drops dried :( I guess next time I'll have to make sure I don't let them dry on the nail! But I think the combination of shimmer and non shimmer polishes is why I just can't bring myself to take this off yet. I'm sort of mesmerized by the mixture of colors. Hypno-nails! :p

Alrighty, well that's it from me for today. Monday begins school for my kids, so depending on how crazy the week is, I might not see you guys until the week after. But I'll try my best to post atleast once next week. I hope you're all doing well. Have a wonderful weekend! And if you're in Texas, don't forget the tax free weekend is right now!


  1. Love this water marble! This makes me want to try out another one of these. :)

  2. I love your combinations of colors and textures!

  3. The design on your middle finger reminds me a photo of universe, I love it! I have to dry water marbling, but I am afraid I will do a disaster. :D

  4. OMG! I am soooo jealous of your manicure!

  5. This is so awesome! I'm too afraid to try! Am a new follower!
