Water marble over silver

Hello ladies!

Today I’m excited to show you a water marble I’ve done. I’ve always been amazed by those who can control the patterns of their water marble (and I still am), but I think with enough practice maybe I can do it too! So even though I’m not there yet I am very proud of the one I’ve done today:

I then marbled over it using Essence Colour & Go Walk on the Wild Side, Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Scarab, and Sinful Colors Neptune and Cinderella.

The silver base really makes these nails shine in the sun! And Cinderella is a pale blue with a pink shimmer – the pink is hard to see, but in the sun it does shimmer. Unfortunately that didn’t translate so well on the photos. I still think it looks gorgeous though!   water marble nails inc cambridge terrace essence walk on the wild side sally hansen scarab sinful colors neptune and cinderella

And guess what? Because it’s a water marble, you get to see my right hand! You’ll just have to excuse how super awkward it looks, I can’t seem to get it to pose properly.

The way my middle finger looks here is exactly how I was trying to get all my nails (minus the fact that it’s already dinged), and I think I did a pretty good job of it.  water marble nails inc cambridge terrace essence walk on the wild side sally hansen scarab sinful colors neptune and cinderellaI hope you liked this water marble too! I have the hardest time deciding on colour combinations but I loved these colours together 🙂
