Theme: Thanksgiving Water Marble!

I am really awful water marble nail art.
If you are unfamiliar with water marbling, you can read about it here.
Basically, you put drops of polish into water and it spreads on the surface and you swirl the colors together.
I have tried for hours at a time... but for some reason, it never works out very well for me!

I wanted to give it another shot using some Thanksgiving colors.
After 2 attempts tonight, here are the results:
Not too great, but I do like the color combinations.
Colors used: Essie "Sew Psyched", "Orange It's Obvious" & "Very Structured", Avon "Sunshine" and LA Colors "Hot Blooded"
I noticed that the Essie polishes did not really enjoy being put into water, and were very resistant to spreading on the surface.
I think next time I water marble, I will try to avoid Essie.

    1. I think the best thing is to use room-temperature distilled water but it's still so tricky!!! I will check out Follow Mee :)

  3. I've tried this several times and it has never worked! I thought that maybe my nail polish wasn't right or something, it looks so easy when you see people do it! I think you did a pretty good job! I love the colors!
    Have a great day!

  7. Oh wow! Well, this looks pretty damn good to me, and it's especially hard to get the effect right when you're using more solid colors versus pastels too.
