Black and White Challenge Day 9: Water Marble

I've been dreading today since before we even started the challenge. Water Marbling and I are just not friends, never have been, probably never will be! I love the way it looks so much but I've never been able to do it to much success.
I gave it my best shot but after an hour of trying, I was really starting to lose my patience. I even dropped my black polish in the water which was just the last straw and I had to let out a very loud growl of frustration! I don't think it's worth sacrificing my sanity for the sake of some nail art so I had to settle for just an accent nail.

For the accent finger, I painted on a base coat of Barry M White and used Wet n Wild White and W7 Black for the marbling. I'm wearing A-England Bridal Veil on my index finger and W7 Black on the others.

Perhaps the other ladies had better luck than I did with their water marbles today!

  10. It looks great!

    I am surprised that it stayed black and didn't turn grey on you. It's still very pretty. :)

  11. I'm sure this wasn't intentional, but I love how the black of the water marble looks like it's a sketch. Like it's a pencil drawing. Water marbling can be frustrating. Each time I do one I run into some problem. It definitely takes practice. This mani looks fantastic though!

  23. I am really liking the idea of doing just the accent nail. I have a hard time with water marbeling due to the time and how messy it is. I hate having stuff on my hands so it is a very hard process for me. I may just have to try this idea.
