Another Wednesday, another watermarble. I’m really getting into this. After cursing the very concept of this technique, the OPI Color Paints and #WatermarblePracticeWednesday has got me actually enjoying it. I never thought I’d see that day. Anyway, this prompt was just Rainbow Watermarble so all eight colours got to play.I also got a bit carried away with my new macro lens, so sorry for the picture spam. I also marbled all ten nails, which I haven’t been attempting all that often. I decided to go for a freeform design (rather than the same on each finger) so I could dip multiple fingers at a time.
Doing all ten nails is a bit time consuming, so I normally just stick to two on each hand.
Polishes and tools
OPI Color Paints: Magenta Muse, Pen and Pink, Chromatic Orange, Primarily Yellow, Landscape Artist, Turquoise Aesthetic, Indigo Motif and Purple Perspective
Models Own White Light
Rainbow Connection Zap (which I ran out of and ended up taping my fingers)
Pure Color Watermarble tool
Plastic disposable cup and tap water
I marbled my three middle fingers together, and then my thumbs and little fingers together. I actually felt like this was a better use of the polish, since I nearly used it all. Often with watermarbling you waste a lot of the polish you drop in the water.
I have an irrational fear of getting to the bottom of a bottle of polish, so using a lot each time gives me the fear.
It’s a little bubbly, and I had to touch up in a few places, but the ILNP holographic topper masks it too. It’s beautifully sparkly in the sun.
It’s like having a carnival on your nails.More watermarble next week! Is this technique love or hate for you? Let me know in the comments below…
