Water Marble Wednesday: Zigzags over a marble

Painted Fingertips | Chevrons over a water marble

Hi everyone!

If any of you are wondering about what got me into blogging, my favourite and least favourite nail looks, and other fun questions, Ordinary Misfit interviewed me on her blog and you can check it out here.

I haven’t done a Water Marble Wednesday in a few weeks, but I’m back with a marble and this time I have used a water marble as a base for some zigzag nail art. Painted Fingertips | Chevrons over a water marbleI saw this post recently on More Nail Polish, and since I enjoy water marbles I just had to try something similar. The difference is that she used vinyls over a white polish and then marbled over them, while I used the marble as the base and then used the vinyls over it. This allowed me to use a textured polish for my zigzags which is of course fantastic!

These all marble pretty well but I wish they looked a bit brighter! Oh well.

The stickers didn’t peel off perfectly on my ring finger but they worked well on my other fingers!
