I finally discovered how to create the perfect watermarble look on my nails, and I'm going to share the secret!
It is important to start with a good canvas, so paint your nails in a pale base colour, I used white.
Next, cut out your watermarble design water decals that you got from the Born Pretty Store. There are lots of colour combinations to choose from, reds, blues, yellows - you are sure to find a combo you like.
Choose which designs you want to place on each finger and then apply them like you would any normal water decal. EG soak in water and then slide them onto your nail. Once dry, cover with top coat.
Voila. No mess, perfect watermarble swirls.
Bah haa haa, I'm just so funny! I had to post these nails today for a laugh, simply because of some hilarious comments on my instagram account on my previous mani. You see, I clearly stated upfront that it was a skittlette created using OPI Nail Apps, and then I started getting comments about the fact that I 'cheated' with my nail art because I used 'stickers' and that 'stickers are for people who can't actually do nail art". Of course there were some super lovely ladies on there who kindly responded to these ridiculous comments.
As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't matter how the hell you create the 'art' you put on your nails. Some people are amazing at free hand art - good for them, many of us are not. That is exactly why there is a huge market in nail polish strips, water decals, stickers and various other things that you can create nail designs with. I really love using nail strips, water decals and the like to show people the sorts of designs they can create easily with these products that end up looking really neat and professional.
So haters of instagram, be prepared to see plenty of decals, stickers and strips in various sorts of nail 'art' that I create. If you don't like, please leave, and also know that I really don't need to see your useless comments despite the giggle they give me.
