Water Marbling for Luck!

Water marbling was the first nail art technique I ever tried. The first time I did it, it wasn't the greatest, but it still looked awesome. The second time I did it, I declared myself to be an expert. Yep. :) I've since water marbled the nails of several friends. However, I haven't done it since beginning my blog! 

I had a very important state test and I wanted some lucky nails! I actually had polishers block and couldn't find a single mani I wanted to do. Could have been the stress...So I decided to go back to my roots and water marble! This was my best water marble yet taking a total of twenty minutes! Woo! I recently got Essie Bikini So Teeny and let me tell you, I am in love! Paired with Zoya Perrie and a glittery top coat of Rainbow Honey The Worst Possible Thing and I was in gorgeous water marbled heaven! And my lucky nails worked because I passed my test! YAY! Have you ever water marbled before? How'd it go? Here are my pictures! Enjoy! :)

  4. Beautiful effect! Did you have to use a lot of polish? I believe this is one of the downsides to using this technique.

    1. Thank you very much! I usually use 5-6 drops of polish per nail, so yes, it is a bit wasteful when compared to just polishing my nails regularly, which would probably be only 2-3 drops per nail. But I don't do it very often, so I've made my peace with the waste, hahaha!
