the best water marble i have ever done!

I love marbling, but I don't love wasting the polish.
And I don't love how the nails don't always end up similar enough.
So this time I decided to just do accent nails, and it was a great idea!
One of the nails ended up so good I didn't want to take it off!
(P.S. this was before I chopped my beautiful nails off :( )

See the awesome finger yet? No? Okay here's a bigger one.

Top right!! So awesome!

I miss it now! Hah!

The thumb on this one ended up pretty nice too.

Now, what I don't understand about this marble, is that it made my non-holo Color Club Fashion Addict holo!
I don't know why, but the marble really made it come out.

This is the best picture I could get of it to show the colors. It really did shine all rainbow-y in the sun.
Which is just so weird because Fashion Addict alone did not at all.

It also made Gamer Glam more sparkly too!

The colors you can see here are, as mentioned, Color Club Fashion Addict (the more opaque sparkly part,) China Glaze Gamer Glam (the thinner sparkly part,) China Glaze Spontaneous (darker purple,) and Joe Fresh Faded Violet (the lavender.)
I also used Faded Violet as a base for the marble so that it popped more, and on the other nails.

I miss this marble and I miss my long nails!
Anyway, back to my granny hobby aka crocheting! I have an adorable project going on now that I hope to have finished today. I'm also going to do my nails sometime soon! I love being done school.


  1. Fantastic. Colours, pattern everything. Grow 'em back, I want more marbling, lol!

  2. Great job! I keep meaning to do an accent nail water marble, it looks better in my opinion than the whole mani being marbled. Great purples!

  3. oh wow! that looks great! Great Job!

  4. this is really fabulous. i've never tried a marble myself. i think i like it better as accent nails. the effect seems to be a little overwhelming as a full mani.

    i miss my long nails too! i took off my polish yesterday to find a huge tear in my ring finger, so i chopped them all down. :[

  5. This is so pretty. I love the colours!

  6. Love, love, love this color combo! :) So pretty.

  7. I've yet to try water marbling but I'm so wanting to do it! I planned on trying it for easter with some nice pastels I have here. I love the Color Club in there--so gorgeous! I might have to add that to my pastels for an extra eye popping wow!

  8. very pretty!!! love the color combination <3

  9. Gorgeous! :) I still have never done water marbling before! Must try it soon! :)

  10. OMG this looks gorgeous!

  11. Looks great! I love the idea of doing this just on an accent finger.

  12. Simply incredible. And I love the accent nail idea. I like watermarbling but it takes FOREVER imo. So doing an accent is awesome and you also answered my (unasked) question about using a glittery or holo-y lacquer in a water marble. Now I can't wait to do my next one. :)

  13. oh my gosh, so many lovely comments! thanks everyone!

  14. This is divine- I haven't mastered marbling, at least not to this extent. Can you do a tutorial please?

  15. stunning! I love it so much! that's a great idea to do just an accent nail with marble!
