This was first time trying to create a water marble manicure and it took quite a few tries. Basically only my OPI polishes would work. Every other brand I have didn’t spread well in the water. Some cheaper brands I own completely dissolved. So once I figured that out I was one step closer. I watched a great tutorial on youtube it was really helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF4et6-rw5s
A big mistake I kept making was when I put my finger in the water then pulled it out the polish around my nail in the water would end up over my nail ruining the manicure. I started to remove the excess polish around my finger with a toothpick and that fixed that problem.
I’m really glad I didn’t give up and I learned a new technique today. Overall, I do like the effect but I will only use water marbling on an accent nail as I feel it’s too busy to put on all my nails. Also that would be a huge waste of nail polish.
