Here is my first ever attempt at doing marbled nail design. And when I say that I mean, the first attempt that I am willing to post here.
Holy crap this is difficult to do. I have watched marbling videos from My Simple Little Pleasures a zillion times, and she makes it look so easy to do.
My main problem was that I wasn't using filtered or bottled water. Tap water just made the polish all clump up when I tried to run the orange stick through it. The other thing is that this takes AGES to do. I'm so slow at doing it. With the whole taping up your nails thing and the dropping the polish in the water, then dragging through the water, then clean up.. etc etc. I'm not sure that I'm patient enough to do this very often
I did this marble look using my el cheapo Ulta3 polishes. I used Lily white as the base then drops of Citrus, Tahiti, Spring Shower, Jelly and Fruit Tingle to create the marble look.
