Nails of the Day: Water Marbling Take 1
Have you ever heard of water marbling? I hadn’t, either. It’s not a super well-known nail polish technique.
But, it’s kind of swept the Internet lately.
So, what is water marbling? Well, you basically use water and different colors of nail polish to create a marbled look on your nails. This video, by Simple Little Pleasures, sums it up pretty well:
And that is the tutorial I used to do my nails this week.
I originally wanted to do a black and white marbled look, but the black polish wasn’t working out right, so I switched to white, light pink and dark pink. To be more accurate, I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine nail polishes in French White Crème, Tickled Pink and Lavender Pearlescent.
This is how it turned out:
I’ll tell ya: water marbling is tough. I had to redo a few of the nails because they got all messed up. But some of these look great. I really like the thumb and pointer fingers on the left hand and the thumb and pinkie fingers on the right.
I’m really excited to try this again. I have all sorts of color plans now.
