It’s pretty obvious I have been into water marble lately, isn’t it? This is largely because I am pretty dead-set on improving my skills: I loooove a good water marble! After doing this mani, I feel like I have pretty much mastered the horizontal stripe method!
I recently took advantage of the China Glaze sale at Sally’s to pick up a few polishes, including a couple of the duochrome polish I wanted to help fill out my current collection. I knew they could be marbled with because I’d done a few experimental things months and months ago, so decided to dive in and do a full chrome water marble!
I’ve been seeing all kinds of posts on IG with people using the #watermarblepracticewed tag. I figured I needed to get in on that. Silly me, didn’t realize that there is a different theme every week and I just did something random. I do what I want.
Today’s prompt for #npclairestelle8 is Ghosts. Have you ever had one of those manicure days where nothing goes right? I worked on these yesterday and gave myself plenty of time, but a ton of stuff went wrong. First, I spilled polish. It got on my (thankfully black) shirt, my kitchen table (which, again thankfully, seems to be impervious and cleaned up beautifully). Then, the water marble which had looked so perfect in my practice runs looked blegh when I actually went to apply it to my nail. Even once I finally had things looking the way I wanted, I smudged on of the ghosts and had to re-do it. I do like how these turned out, but with all the fubar and problems on the way, I was sick of them long before I was even finished lol!
