Blue Monday: Watermarbling Edition

Last summer I attempted watermarbling and it was a huge fail. I tried it again about a week ago and, in my opinion, it was a success. I can't wait to try this out with different colours soon.

I forgot to take pictures until after the second full day of wear so please excuse the chipped polish on my pinky finger.



I started with a base coat of OPI No Room For The Blues and then did my watermarbling with that polish and OPI Sunbody Loves Me (pictured above) and then a coat of Seche Vite.

I find that, as with most things, practice makes perfect - I'm very much looking forward to trying this again when I have some spare time. (This took me just under an hour to do ... I had a lot of clean up to do, I forgot to use tape, gah.)

Have you tried watermarbling? Fail or success?

  1. Keep trying! I found it works best with soft water so if you have hard water filter it :-)
