Water Marble Manicures

I decided to marble my nails, I just ordered nail image plates and wanted some nail art. Marbling has always been so much fun for me and I haven’t done one in a good while. I used two from China Glaze. Four Leaf Clover, and Winter Berry, then two from Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear. Mellow Yellow and Pacific Blue. I really think it turned out great! On with the pics.

I love how people have trouble believing I did this myself when I go out into the world. I am glad that I am able to get attractive marbles done. If you’re interested in water marbling I hope you enjoyed the photos of this manicure. I did another one for Madri Gras with China Glaze Gothic Lolita, and Four Leaf Clover and then the main marbling yellow I rely on, Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow. I thought I would add them both to this post because it would be so short if I just did the one from last week, I have word two Sinful Colors in between the two marbled manicures too, so I’ll post about that soon.

I only took three pictures of this manicure because I just felt it wasn’t really my best marbling. I think I was too heavy handed with the polish in the water. So as a bonus for showing off older marbles I’ve done I thought I would share how I practice. I will use an index card ripped so I can fit it into the yogurt cup I use to marble in, and come straight down over the water into the polish. Hope you enjoy checking out some of my other combinations of color I tried out last year.

Here are the practice cards I mentioned:

Thanks for checking out the marbled manicures I’ve done this last two weeks, and I hope you enjoyed seeing the practice cards I’ve created since I started playing with polish in Brita Filtered, room temperature water. My other half pointed out that these two marbles are very close in coloring, I was surprised it didn’t dawn on me before he said something. Thanks for reading and I wish you happy polishing!
