Icing, Max Factor and Savina watermarble
Today was apparently a very bad day for water marbling! I had such problems with it that I would have given up if it wasn’t for the fact that I am really stubborn.
I tried everything and nothing worked. I tried different polishes, different water, different cup, even different order of the polishes. Nothing worked. The polishes refused to spread or they dried too fast on the water surface.
I intended to do a burgundy/white/black water marble, but neither the white or the black wanted to spread on the water. So after 15 attempts and literally one million cotton buds later I finally got something to work just a little bit.
This here is Max Factor’s Burgundy Crush, Icing’s Teal for Real and Savina’s Fantasy Files, topped with El Corazón’s 421h/25:
I simply don’t know what went wrong today. Perhaps it’s the temperature or the humidity. It’s weird, that’s what it is.
And this pattern is completely different than what I had in mind, but I had to work fast and dunk those nails into the water when I had something that just vaguely resembled a water marble.
Here are the polishes I used:

Phew. I’m just glad I got something on my nails!
