For a long time I’ve wanted to try out this technique, but it seemed very daunting. I think I need some practice, but it was very fun and I can’t wait to try it out again.

I wasn’t totally happy with them, but the colors did show up better in person. My poor camera was so confused by all the colors and sparkles. :)

ORLY in White Tips, AC-NED-82, AC-NED-81, L’Oreal Bijou Gems in B. Outrageous, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet, AC-NED-90, Sally Hansen HD in Wavelength, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, ORLY in Gumdrop, AC-NED-94, OPI in Not Like The Movies.

I was inspired by this tutorial which I found through this amazing tumblr. (Which, I was introduced to by my BF, might as well continue the credit-where-credit-is-due train of thought.)

I chose a lighter base mostly because I am so in love with my new OPI in Not Like The Movies. :) Seriously, such a great color, neutral but with a bit of understated rock star glam.

No, it wasn’t my wedding! I did these to match the dress (and the bride’s favorite color) that I wore to the wedding of two of my friends this past weekend. It was my first (mostly unsuccessful) attempt at hand drawn lace. The swirly bits also got out of hand, they started as dots and then ended up….as that haha

 

Trying my ‘hand’ at Water Marbling 04/15/2012

The color is way off in this one but it’s the clearest picture I have of the marbling.

The colors are more true in this one and you can see the marbling detail fairly well.

I really like the idea of water marbling but I found it a bit difficult to pull it off. My polish wanted to dry too quickly in the water, so when I tried to swirl it it would just clump together. I need to either get way faster or find polish that dries slower. :) I plan on experimenting more with this, to try different brands, different water temps, etc to see if I can’t make it work better.
