31DC2012: Day 20 - Water Marble

Dear whoever came up with this challenge,
I hate you.
LOL. No but I wish this one wasn't a part of the challenge.
This has to be the hardest nails I've ever done and the most ANNOYING. It took me about 4 tries to get this to work. And I don't even like the result too much. :(
I actually did this like 5 days ahead of time because I knew it was going to be seriously difficult; I didn't want to find myself struggling to do this and not be able to get a post up in time! Well I actually do most of my manis at least one day before I post them. ;) Shh don't tell anyone.

I have to apologise in advance for the appearance of my cuticles and skin around my nails.. Looking at the pictures right now I'm contemplating not uploading them but please please try to look at the nails and not at the surrounding skin. I know it's really disappointing to see polish on the skin on blogs but please forgive that! I think I'll just upload one photo to spare you. I didn't notice that you could still see the polish around my skin in the photos; I thought I got it all! :(

Water marbling is so annoying, messy and just ARGHHH. I'm so jealous of girls who can do it well with minimal mess and beautiful designs. I don't have enough patience to keep trying with this so I just gave up and left it as it was. I'd been trying for maybe 4 hours before it worked. As you can see, my middle finger looks... not so nice. But I redid that nail like 3 times and I was so over it! :(

I had a lot of trouble getting my polish to spread. I ended up just letting it not spread. LOL. So the rings didn't spread very much but I just worked with it.
I can't give you any good tips because I did not have much luck with this.

Polishes used were:
Base of Ulta3 - Lilac Bloom, then I did the design with Ulta3 - Lilac Bloom, Zoya - Dannii and Color Club - Wild at Heart.

I really don't think I'll be trying this again any time soon. Way too messy and annoying. I ended up with polish under the free edge of all my nails and it was impossible to remove. :( I can't stand having leftover polish around my nails once I've removed my mani.

I'd like to thank all of my 60 followers! :D It means so much to me that even 5 or 10 girls would want to read my blog! 60 is awesome! Thank you so much for all your sweet comments too, sorry that I don't always get back to them!
My blog has also had almost 10,000 hits! That is insane!!!! :) So cool! :D Thank you to each and every one of my awesome readers! :)

I like how this looks like a floral water marble mani!

Kat said...

Dang, I wish I could even get a marble half that good! I have to work so fast and I can't ever get anything resembling a coherent design going before my polish dries up and I have to start over. :(

Hi I'm a new follower! I think your nails are so pretty! I wish my water marble would have came out half as good! I know exactly how you felt about clean up. I swear it took me over an hour to clean around/under my nails after water marbling! said...

Your petals look awesome. Don't be mad

Shannon @ So You Think You Can Paint said...

Wow, I love the color combo and those shimmery petals are just stunning. Great job!
