Water Marble Wednesday: Ocean

Painted Fingertips | Oceanic water marble with stamping

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I have combined a marble with some stamping. I was looking for some marbling ideas when I came across this stamped oceanic marble on Mucking Fusser and decided to do something similar. First of all, here is the marble on its own:Painted Fingertips | Oceanic water marbleI combined a bunch of blue/teal/green polishes just to get an oceany colour overall. I started off with a base of Tip Top Cha Cha Cha and then marbled using Vixen Nail Lacquer (unnamed mint polish), Essence Roller Coaster, Tip Top Moonshine, Essence Splash!, and Sinful Colors Fly Away.Painted Fingertips | Oceanic water marbleAren’t the colours lovely?Painted Fingertips | Oceanic water marble with stampingI topped it with some ocean-themed stamping using Essence Stamp me! White. I used plate QA62 from the Born Pretty Store for the image on my thumb, and used Moyou Sailor Collection 04 for the other images. Painted Fingertips | Oceanic water marble with stampingI LOVE the image on my pinkie! I definitely think it needs to get used again in the near future. I was also really glad my stamping went a lot better than my previous attempt, although there is still plenty of room for improvement.

    Great manicure for the ocean concept. I almost like the water marble on it’s own better than the whole thing but both looks are great. I need to do more water marbles but they take so much time that I haven’t had the chance to in a long while.

      Thanks! I actually find that they don’t take long so long as the polishes you use marble well (if they don’t then the thing that takes long is really finding better polishes!)
