Good morning ladies! Today is the second instalment of Go Pink Wednesday hosted by Finger Painting Fingers in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. I decided to do just a water marble for today with 2 out of my very small stash of pink polishes.
I painted my nails with a base colour of Avon Cotton Candy and marbled with Avon Cotton Candy and Viva Pink. I would have included a white in there as well, but I have a really goopy white, which I didn't think would work well, and another white that is so thin and dries way to fast to use in a marble. Oh the hardships of polishing!
I hope you have enjoyed this mani. This is probably the shortest post to date, but all the pictures I took of this mani weren't the best, and it was dark really last night by the time I got to sit down so I couldn't try to get pictures again :(
I got a really nice compliment from a lady that came into my office yesterday. She asked where I went to get my nails done and I told her I did them myself. She told me they were beautiful :D Then she asked it my nails were my real nails and I told her they were. She was so amazed with them, it made me feel so good :D
Check out what the other ladies are doing!

Thank you Arletta! It's not so much skills as having the patience, not giving up and willing to try something until it works :)Delete

That lady was right, your nails are beautiful!!! Amazing job!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Gosia! I'm pretty sure I was blushing when I was telling her I did them myself ;)Delete
This looks so perfect! Great job with the marbleing.ReplyDelete
There are a couple things I wish I had've done differently, but all in all I love it, thank you!Delete
This are the prettiest marbled nails I have ever seen!!!! Was it difficult? I´ve read so many good and bad things about doing a water marble, that I was not sure if I should try it, but after seeing yours, I´m thinking of giving it a shot......ReplyDelete
You have such pretty nails!
Thank you so much Susy! :D Way to makin' me blush ;)Delete
Definitely give it a shot! It does take a lot of practice and even more patience. Check out my Tips and Tricks page for what I have learned with doing marbling http://ericasnailsandmore.blogspot.com/p/tips-and-tricks.html
It's not going to be beautiful the first time you try it. Trust me, when I did my very first water marble, it took me about an hour and I only got my 2 thumbs done, and I was all "pfft I'm NEVER doing that again!" But then I pulled up my socks and tried again and again, and now I'm pretty comfy with it. However, I am still learning what polishes work and what polishes don't, and I think that is something that will always be trial and error :) If you do try a water marble, make sure to send me a picture on the Facebook page, I want to see it :D
Stunning water marble. I am green with envy over your perfect patterns. Brava!ReplyDelete
Thank you Shannon! :DDelete
This is honestly amazing. My water marbles never turn out so well. Have you thought of doing a tutorial? I'd love to see how you get such clean shapes!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Kelly! All you ladies are so great with all your high compliments! :DDelete
Oops, nevermind. Just scrolled up and saw your comment about the Tips and Tricks section lol. Will check that out asap! ;]ReplyDelete
I have never even attempted a water marble because I have this phobia about messing them up! This is so pretty and reminds me of swirled cotton candy!ReplyDelete
Oooh it does! I should do it with the light pink and a light blue one time and that will look even more like cotton candy! :DDelete
Love how this turned out!ReplyDelete
Me too! Thanks Helena! :DDelete
