Hey! So as promised, here is the documentation of my water marbled nails. I’ve known about the technique for years but have never been terribly interested in trying it. A prompt in my 365 creativity challenge said to “use only water as your medium/inspiration today”. Okay, I used nail polish too, but water was certainly entirely necessary for this “creation”. Perfect occasion to give it a go!
Taking the plunge
Exciting first results
Hands done before getting cleaned up (really messy!)
Tape made the process a little bit neater
A day or two later and the cuticles are finally clean!
I love the unique patterns on each nail. Hard to pick a fav!
I got lots of comments about my thumb
Picking the color combo was my favorite part (Essie Bordeaux, China Glaze Awaken, and Zoya Penny)
This was my first time doing it, and I was happy with the results considering some of the horror stories online. I didn’t end up redoing any of the nails, so what you see it truly the first attempt.
I could use some practice making the patterns, but the whole thing was easier and more fun than I was expecting! Has anyone else out there attempted water marbled manis?
