Day 20: Water Marbled

If I could take one sick day from the 31 Day Challenge, it would be today! The mani you see here is my third attempt at a decent water marble. By the time I finished I was suffocating under the sheer amount of marbling fail. Never again, guys, never again!

In hindsight, my experience with water marbling was not that bad, but at the time all I wanted to do was scrub this off my nails as soon as the pictures were taken. It looks kind of nice, but for the hours, sweat and tears it stole from me I probably won't be doing it again any time soon!

Head over to Rie and Cristina's blogs to see if they had better luck than me with their water marbling!

  10. Wow what an awesome mani! Reminds me of a silk scarf I have. I'd be so happy if my sad attempts at water marbling came out half as nice as yours.

  20. I never came up with a decent water marble (and I tried three or four times) so I hate the idea to try another time :-(
    The mani you did is stunning, anyway I understand the "remove after pictures" feeling!

  22. I think these turned out really well! Definitely better than my attempts so far at water marbling.

  23. I think they turned out beautifully! I want to give them a try since I really shouldn't go out and buy anything extra for my nails (such as glequins but I want to!) so this will be an interesting tutorial to try!
