Water Marbling - Attempt #2

I don't know if any of you recall my first attempt, but it was *meh*. I think I did a bit better this time.



Next time I'll work on consistency of design. This time I was just trying to not make a mess!



My base color was the Claire's Mood Polish Peaceful/Confident. I wanted to keep it simple so I only used two colors for the marble part, OPI Ski Teal We Drop and Wet n Wild Black Creme.

Overall, water marbling is pretty fun! The main thing is to make sure you're prepared before you start. Don't have your fingers in the water and realize you don't have something to swirl the extra polish away at hand! If you want to learn how to water marble, My Simple Little Pleasures is a great blog to study. Colette creates fabulous designs and posts great video tutorials on how to do them yourself.
