Water Marble Wednesday: Red, Blue and Silver

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I have really been enjoying getting back into water marbling and I’m glad I decided to bring the series back for a while. I used some shades from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection for last week’s marble, and I decided to make use of the same collection this week. They really do marble beautifully and I’m sure I’ll be reaching for them again and again! There are so many different colour combinations to be used from the collection, too – it’s a 10-piece collection so think of how many different combinations I can come up with 🙂 (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Black! So far I’ve shared two stamped looks exploiting the contrast between glossy and matte – one with pink accents, and the other with gold. Today I’m finally steering away from the stamping. I enjoyed the milky coffee water marble I did last week so much that I’ve decided to bring Water Marble Wednesday back for a while! I won’t be committing to posting a marble every single Wednesday, but I do have a couple lined up and ideas for a few more 🙂 I’m starting it off today with a black and clear water marble over a neon gradient.

Water Marble Wednesday – Milky Coffee

Hi everyone!

It’s been ages since I’ve done a Water Marble Wednesday post! Honestly, I just happened to do a water marble, so why not share it on a Wednesday? 🙂
Ever since I got some new Zoyas a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to use them in water marbles. In fact, I already did my bright 60s water marble a couple of weeks ago with some of them. I couldn’t get the brown and the nude I’d bought out of my head though… wouldn’t these be perfect for some coffee-inspired marbling? (more…)

Cobalt and Peach Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! You might remember me mentioning a couple of times that I’m taking part in a weekly nail art challenge on Instagram this month. I’m cheating a little on this one by blogging these nails a bit earlier than the Instagram challenge – these are the nails for next Friday but I needed a good water marble for today! (more…)

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. (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Green, blue and purple

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! For today’s marble I had a totally different marble pattern in mind, but I just couldn’t get it to work. After a while I tried this instead and I still like the outcome! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Rainy Days

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! The past few weeks I’ve been struggling to come up with unique ideas for my water marbles. The other day I was brainstorming ideas of what real-life things might look like a water marble (think my woodgrain water marble from a while back). Well, the weather we’ve been having lately gave me the idea I needed! It’s winter here and that means a lot of rainy days. I figured rain can be artistically represented with flowing lines, so all I needed was the right colour scheme: (more…)
