Valentine's Week - Day 5 and Ugly Manicure Monday - 05

Hi there!

I want to like this- really, I do. I love the idea... just not the execution...

My nails water marbled with Julep - Carrie, Cameron, and Salma.

I painted 1 coat of Carrie before I marbled with Carrie, Cameron, and Salma. These 3 worked alright together, but not well enough to allow for a design other than 1 or 2 lines drawn through. I was aiming to marble a heart design on each finger, but the polish dried too quickly. That wasn't my only dilemma with this design... if you look closely, you can see how terribly the top coat smeared everything!

Aye, aye, aye.

Anyway, here's a look at how I tape my fingers before water marbling...

How to tape your finger for water marbling.

Until next time...


  1. I like it, marbling is a constant testing with the different formulas. Remember practice makes perfection :-) I have yet so much to learn on marbling :-)

  2. I this! The colours you've used are awesome. I'm totally rubbish at water marbling!

  3. If I saw you out in the world with these nails - you'd have my attention! Looks great to me!

  4. Wow, you are so talented! Gorgeous!
