blue water marble

Good morning!
I had a hard time deciding what to post this morning, so I'll probably have a swatch post up later too.

The other day while I was staying with my cousin, I water marbled her nails. And then I decided to do mine too!

It turned out lovely!
I used all China Glaze polishes, as I prefer to do with water marbling.
For Audrey, Shower Together, and Liquid Leather.
It took me a while to decide on the colors, I stared at my China Glaze container for a while before picking these three.

I used one coat of For Audrey as a base coat. I really like how Shower Together came out much lighter in the marble - it looks pretty.

Marbling is so much fun but so messy and sometimes wasteful. Haha.


  1. Beautiful colours. I like how Liquid Leather doesn't look black because it has gone over the blue.

  2. Looks lovely! I tried to set a goal for myself to water marble at least twice a month because I need practice at it! But last month I only water marbled once. I guess I better get on it this month so hopefully you have inspired me with this beautiful mani!

  3. wow, amazing, great colours you've choose :-D

  4. Very nice =] Cool and calming.... I ♥ it!

  5. I love how those colors turned out with this! I'm gonna have to work up the courage to try water marbling soon! :)

  6. This is theee most difficult thing in the world for me to get down

  7. beautiful! I can't stand the thought of using up so much polish for water marbling. I too feel it's wasteful. But if I were to use the polishes I'm not too attached to for the marble, I probably wouldn't like it anyway!

  8. very nice! I'm going to do some marbling this weekend! you have inspired me haha

  9. Love how it turned out! You picked nice colours. Recently I did my first water marble and it was like a HORROR MOVIE! The mess! The failure! I'll have to save some courage to attempt it again hahah

  10. thanks everyone!
    marbling takes patience but i know you all can do it!

  11. Muiiito lindoooooo Beautilful very!!!! *)

  12. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
