Comments: I mentioned in my last post that I was bored and messed around with creating marble-like manis without using water. I decided to try this out as an actual mani. I like the results - though it takes getting used to. I find it kind of ugly, but I'm smitten when I look at my nails close up. This is a fun technique that can be used in so many different ways.
I switched it up on my right hand (last two pics below) and started with blobs rather than lines. I think I prefer that look. A quick play by play will be in my next post.

  1. The last photo of your nails, the colors look like abstract roses. All in all, I think the designs are beautiful.

  2. I think this looks really cool - your left hand middle finger looks like some sci-fi or sea creature = very cool!

  3. Love this take on marbling. I'm going to have to try this one day.
