Water Lilies Marble

Please, don't ask me why it's called Water Lilies Marble. My BF came up with it. :) Also - it's been raining here for whole day. That's why the photos are so bad. I did the best I could.

As a base, I used Orly Cashmere Cardigan. I'm in love with this color! And the fact that it needs only 2 coats makes me love it even more. :)


For marbling I used China Glaze nail polishes in Aqua Baby & Agent Lavender. This is the outcome:


For all of you who want to see marbling in process, I made a video. Hope you like it!




Comment if you have any questions. Thanks for looking! :)

    The tape idea is cool, I use Vaseline myself. Wonder which is easier?

  33. hey. do you have any tips on doing this way ? cause i tried it. and most of my nails came out amazing. but a few others didnt. ):

    ReplyDelete
  34. If your first nails came out good, but the last ones didn't, then you should change water. Change it for every 3 nails. Let me know if this works. :)

  36. I haven't marbled my nails in months - I think I will have to do it again now. BUT 1 question - I didn't see you use the earbuds and my curiosity has got the better of me - what do you use them for? (Besides to listen to your Ipod smarties!)
