Water Marbling Nail Art - practice makes perfect!

Nail Art Water Marbling

Hey girlies
 
On Saturday I spent half the afternoon water marbling my nails and I must say I am pleased that I did. Well, to be fair I spent longer on the clean up than I did on the marbling as I chose to do a couple of nails at a time without using tape or vaseline! As she said in Pretty Woman "big mistake, huge!" I shall never be lazy and not tape up my nails first again.

The only problem I had was getting water bubble marks on them which you can see in the photos, other than that it worked a dream. I used all Barry M nail polishes and I boiled some water and allowed it to cool to room temperature to make up for not using filtered water.
 
I would love to know what you think, I must say I am very pleased with them myself :-)

    1. Yes, if you dont have access to filtered water (which I didnt) boil some water and let that cool to room temperature. It must be room temperature and use nail varnishes that are quite runny like Barry M. Let me know how it goes :0)
