Billowing Blue

Here begins a lot of water-based nail designs! I’ve been leaving a cup of water out overnight so the water acclimatizes (and de-gasses and de-chlorinates and all that jazz) making it easy to watermarble with. So, there are 2 water marbles and 2 water spotting manis coming up!

The first is a simple blue-with-blue-and-blue mani. For some reason, the middle color blue (Ling) got a bit buried beneath the other two! I started trying to marble with Rock the Boat but failed, so it is the base color but not used in the marble. I substituted in Cinderalla, which marbled well (for all that it’s a shimmer).

I forget how much I love Endless Blue, and also how bad it smells! So pretty but gross.

  1. I’m quite jealous of people who can watermarble. I just can’t crack it. Having said that it’s just so messy. Anyway it’s a lovely combination. Well done.

    • It is super messy, and tape is your friend! I’ve been marbling a lot this week because I just kept putting out a plastic cup full of water overnight. Makes everything easier!

  2. ooh maybe i need to declimatize my water or whatever ~

  3. Love how your thumb came out – but the whole mani looks marvelous!

    • My thumb is by far my favorite. I don’t know why that one worked so well, but I got double the number of drops to spread on that marble run!

  4. I love it. I’m always a bit envious of people who can water marble like this. Makes me wanna try it again.

    • Do it! Just let the water sit out overnight first, tape your nails, and use creme polishes (preferably newer ones that spread on the water)

    I need to just bite the bullet, and try water marbling again. If I can’t get the hang of it I’ll just make decals though. Yours is beautiful!
