I have been dreading this. My last and only water marble attempt didn't turn out well so I was nervous about how this would go. It's still not fabulous but it's an improvement. That's what counts right?
I started off by painting two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. I wanted to have a base color just in case the marbling tore or slipped or something. The thought is the base color will hide the mess up. After that dried, I used a combination of China Glaze Flyin' High, For Audrey, and White Cap (that didn't show up) and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
I taped the sides of my index finger too close to the nail so I had a border of Alpine Snow on both sides. It looked really bad so I added little dots of ChG Flyin' High and For Audrey to try to cover it up. It's a total mess but my other nails turned out pretty cute I think. Not bad for my second try, right? =)
Well, I'm glad that's over with! This is not my favorite technique. If you're good at it, it looks amazing. To get good means to practice. I have no desire to practice this, it's too messy and such a pain!
I hope you liked it! I'm not sure what's going on with my pinky, there is a cool design on it but my camera blurred it out. Bah!
