Water Marble for day 20 of the 31 Day Challenge

Hi everyone!

I’ve made it to day 20! Two thirds of the challenge are over and after today, only the challenging ‘inspired by’ section is left. Today is not Wednesday, but you get to see a water marble anyway 🙂Painted Fingertips | Water marble for day 20 of the #31DC2014I have done a marble similar to this once before, for my Green Lantern nails, but I really like the effect with all the different colours. Painted Fingertips | Water marble for day 20 of the #31DC2014I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White on all my nails, and then marbled each with Snow Me White plus 3 other shades in the colour needed. It’s a long list of polishes, so here goes:

Last year I wasn’t great at marbling yet, but I still enjoyed it and used a pretty colour combination:

    Wow on the home stretch. When all of this crazy is over I was wondering bout a water marble tutorial showing especially any tips on how you get the pattern on your nails without messing it up cause I’m having a very frustrating time with it. Anyway, very cute nails 🙂

      Thanks! I’m also only just learning how to get the pattern I want on my nails. At first I just did random water marbles (which I also think are beautiful) because I couldn’t do a pattern. I might consider a tutorial later on but there are loads of other tutorials out there already too!
