This was a quick one. I meant to use two colors from Color  Club, but they didn't spread well in the water on the first try, so I grabbed these two instead. I realized in the morning that I had a blouse that matched my manicure exactly - so of course I wore it!
**  Esta fue una rápida manicura. Quería utilizar dos colores de Color Club, pero no se difundió bien en el agua en el primer intento, así que usé estos dos en su lugar. Me di cuenta en la mañana que tenía una blusa que coincidía con mi manicura exactamente - lo que por supuesto que me lo puse!

    1. What I do:
      Use water from the sink - so it is room temperature.
      Try out the nail polish I want to use - if it doesn't disperse well in the water, I don't use it.
      Use a toothpick to create the pattern, and try not to change it too much until I am better at it.
      Use few colors for now, and so far I only use creme formulas, no shimmers.
      Start with white base color so the colors show up better over it.

      ** Lo que yo hago:
      Use el agua del fregadero - por lo que es la temperatura ambiente.
      Pruebe el esmalte de uñas que quiero usar - si no se dispersa bien en el agua, yo no lo uso.
      Utilice un palillo para crear el patrón, y trate de no cambiar demasiado hasta que yo sea mejor en ella.
      Utilizar pocos colores, por ahora, y hasta ahora sólo se utilizan fórmulas de crema, no brilla.
      Comience con base de color blanco para que los colores se vean mejor sobre ella...

    2. Jut wanted to chime in and say that My Simple Little Pleasures has a lot of youtube videos of watermarbling, and she recommends room temperature filtered water.

      Nadamas queria agregar que My Simple Little Pleasures tiene muchos videos de hacer "water marbling" en Youtube, y ella recomienda usar agua al igual que este filtrada. :)
