31DC2012: Day 20 Water Marbling

I’ve never made any secret of the fact that I despise water marbling and in the last 2 years, I’ve only done it twice when it was part of a challenge. Well as much as I hate it and totally wanted to duck out of this day, I ain’t no quitter! So last night, I put my big girl boots on and knuckled down to business.
I went in to this knowing that I would only be doing one accent nail. It’s insane how much this technique has stressed me out in the past and I’m quite a level headed person! I took precautionary measures and promised myself that as soon as I did one nail satisfactorily, I’d be finished so I didn’t end up pulling my hair out this time!
Rie and Cris have both done amazing jobs with their water marbles today. Go check ’em out!

I used Sally Hansen Ion* as a base colour and created the water marble with Barry M Watermelon and Blueberry from the Gelly range. My index finger is Barry M Blueberry and I used one coat of Seche Vite to top it all off.
