Good Morning Polished People!
Well here we are on the 5th installment of our challenge. As a reminder- here are the days we’ve done, and those we have yet to do:
Today is our blue day, so let’s get on down to the nails!
Blue Water-marbled Nails:
Usually this is where I tell you how to get these nails. Today though I’m just going to direct you to the site that FINALLY helped me to get a decent water-marble. Click here to go to one of my favorite polished people’s blogs. Her name is Nicole and her blog is called Young, Wild and Polished. She’s completely awesome and als0 a water-marble master (I am not lying when I say that, one time she did an amazing water-marble while locked out of her house with some water left out on her porch and some polish from her purse. She’s the nail polish MacGyver). Her tutorial made all the difference for me. One tip that made a world of difference was to remove the polish around your finger before you pull it out of the water. Another thing that I learned that made all the difference for this water-marble was that you should just run the toothpick across the polish like 1 or 2 times, making a “flower petal” design, because that’s something you can replicate each time and therefor get somewhat consistent results. Als0, I made sure to add plenty of drops of polish so that there were lots of “rings” of polish to work with. If you’re a water-marble hater like me, I hope her tutorial helps you as much as it did me. Read it. It just may change your water-marbling life.
Just for fun, here’s my other water-marble that I tried for this challenge day. It was actually the first one I attempted post-life-changing-tutorial. It didn’t turn out too bad, but it wasn’t as good as the “main” one.
In this one I used too many colors for my skill level and also I didn’t get the whole “try to make the design in the glass similar each time so each nail is similar” idea so it was just too weird and after reading Nicole’s tutorial, I just thought I could do better.
