My first water marble design of the year! I used a few shades from the set of 10 nail polishes I bought from CVS during the Christmas season of 2010. Yes, I've had these unused since then!

    2. Try checking out My Simple Little Pleasures blog. She has tutorials that are very helpful!
      Also, when I marble I try to stay within the same brand of polish if I can, and use only cremes until I get better.
      Finally, try to start with a marble of just one color and clear until you get more comfortable with it.

  12. ¡Preciosas! Yo he intentado muchas veces hacer un Water Marble pero no me sale. No sé si es que soy muy torpe, que no uso los esmaltes correctos o problema del agua (¿fría, caliente?).

  16. Hey ABOP!

    I tried going to the link you put up in your first response but it says that the page cannot be accessed.. Not sure if others had the same problem. But then I found the blog on your blogroll and looked for the technique there.

    Going to try it out soon!

    1. Hmmm... without seeing it I have to just throw out a few suggestions
      1. Use room temperature water. Some people even recommend using bottled or distilled water.

      2. Use a cup or bowl that is large enough for dipping your nail but not too large. The larger it is, the further the polish will spread, which means it will sit in a thinner layer on the surface and dry out faster. If you use the smallest size necessary you save time and polish.

      3. If a polish doesn't spread well when you drop it in, move on and try another one. I try twice on a polish, and if it doesn't spread properly in either of those tries, I don't bother with it anymore.

      4. Try to stay away from quick-drying polish. It will dry on the surface and when you try to drag through it to make your design, it will wrinkle and stick to your pin/cuticle stick/toothpick.

      Sounds like your polish is drying too quickly?
