Water Marble Success

Happy Friday All! Today I have for you as promised my second full-on attempt of a water marble. If you follow me on Twitter I gave a sneak peak of this last night. I was so excited to show it off.  I have been wanting to try this again since my first time I attempted it. The first time I water marbled it was a disaster. They did not turn out the way I wanted and it literally took me 3 hours to do both hands. It was exhausting to say the least and I was a tad bit apprehensive to try it again. Boy am I glad I DID! Look how freaking cool this turned out.


Had to showcase the thumb!

L-R Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, Wet Concrete, Mellow Yellow.
I used a base of Wet n Wild White Creme under the water marble. I used all Sally Hansen polishes for my water marble. I love this color scheme. My sister told me it looked very 70's. I agree! Many water marble tutorials out there tell you to use room temperature water. I tried that and I could not get the polishes to spread out. I finally used ice cold water and it worked beautifully. I was unbelievably impressed with how this water marble turned out. I would show you my other hand but I broke two nails and they just don't look that pretty. I am also proud to say that this took me 45 minutes from start to finish.

What do you guys think? Pretty Cool huh?

  12. You did an awesome job!!! Super cute!! I tried it tonight but only 1 nail came out good. I think it was too hot in my house because the nail polish was drying way too fast. I used a silver sally hansen's nail polish, like the ones you used, and it worked very well. I'm going to go buy some of the same type tomorrow but with different colors. I'm excited to try again tomorrow.
