Howdy! Today I have a semi-successful watermarble to share! Let me start out by saying that I am absolutely terrible at watermarbles. Just awful. But, I was inspired by Pish.Posh.Polish’s recent blog tutorial to give it another whirl. And, I picked colors based on her recent black and white mani. Hers was so super classy. Mine came out a bit more…well…klassie:
Yeah….I got a little carried away. But that’s okay…I call this a win because I got somthing resembling a watermarble to work!!
I used Zoya Willa, Barielle Going to the Chapel, and vinyls by TwinkledT.
I started with two coats of Going to the Chapel:
As far as white polishes go, this is a pretty good one.
I topped my index and pinky with seche to help them dry faster so they would be ready for the vinyls whenever I got around to them. Then, I started in on the watermarble.
I added the polish to the water and let it spread. Then I used a toothpick to create the design. Here’s what it looked like:
I had the spot I wanted to use all picked out. Then my dogs bumped into my table, and I was left with this:
Not so great. So, I started over. No biggie. Here’s what it looked like after my first finger:
A total mess. But under that mess is liquid latex (which is the purple on my ring finger). Once I was done dipping, I peeled the latex off and was only left with a little to clean up. Here’s what my two middle fingers looked like after they were both dipped and cleaned:
Not too terribly shabby. I mean, they don’t look as good as Pish’s, but it is a HUGE improvement over anything I’ve ever been able to pull off before!
Now, if I was classy like Pish, I would have added some black dots to my index and pinky and then put the polish the hell down. But no. I love her chevrons so much I just had to do some.
I pulled out my TwinkledT vinyls. You can check out what she offers here. I am a really big fan of her vinyls. They fit my super curvy nails better than traditional vinyls. Plus, she has some awesome designs.
For this mani, I used the small chevrons. I placed them, painted Willa over them, then quickly removed them. End result:
It is a little busy, but hey — I watermarbled!!
Thanks for stopping by!
