OPI Water Marble
An attempt on a blue, red and white water marble
I have only done two water marbles in my life and none of them went very well. I’m not going to lie to you: This one didn’t either. But it was at least better than the previous two I did.
This time I use demineralised water, and that seems to help the polish actually spread in the water. That’s a huge plus.
I used OPI Alpine Snow as my base colour, and started with one coat of that on my nails before starting on the actual water marble.
When that was dry I started on the marble. I used OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Unfor-Greta-bly Blue and OPI Let Me Entertain you. They all spread out on the water really well; I was SO pleased!
I’m apparently not very good at drawing patterns in water though :D But anyway, I’ve written before that I’m going to post my fails too, so that’s what I’m going to do today :)
Are you ready? Okay, here goes:
The topcoat smudged my “design” and the tape was all over the place, also on the polish, argh! :D
I like the pattern on the thumbnail best, I think the other lines are too thin for me to actually like them. I did exactly the same way of dripping polish into the water for each nail, so I don’t know why the thumb turned out different than the others <puzzled>
I’m obviously not really happy with this, but I am pleased with the fact that it turned out better than last time. That means that I’m encouraged to try it again, which is a great thing!
Please be gentle when you comment!
