Water Marble Wednesday: Christmas

Hi everyone!

I’m back with another installment of Water Marble Wednesday. This one is Christmas themed! Painted Fingertips | Christmas water marbleThe original idea that I had was to do a water marble that looked like candy cane. I’m dangerously low on white polish so I replaced the white with a champagne coloured one. In the end I think it looks more like wrapping paper, but it’s undeniably Christmassy! Painted Fingertips | Christmas water marbleI started with a base of Tip Top Champagne Whispers. I then marbled with Champagne Whispers along with Essie Pretty Edgy and Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar. I decided to go with a striped look again, but this time diagonally. Painted Fingertips | Christmas water marble

Have a wonderful Christmas!

    I think they look very yummy, kinda like the boiled lollies I used to have when I was a kid. Have a lovely Christmas, I hope Santa brings you all the goodies you deserve and you have a wonderful time with the people you love.

    Cute! I tried a Christmas watermarble but it didn’t work out. LOL. Yours is much better. I’m going to give it another shot tonight.

      Yeah sometimes marbles just don’t play nicely… I hope your second attempt goes better!

    Whenever I try red and green watermarbling, they end up bleeding into one another and I get this brownish gunk! Yours is fantastic!! It really does look like fancy holiday wrapping paper 🙂

      Thanks! I think it just depends which polishes you use, I get bleeding with some polishes too and it’s really just trial and error. I was lucky with these as I only have a handful of reds to choose from!
