Nailed It!

Over Thanksgiving break, my sisters wanted to show me this cool nail polish trick that they had tried a few weeks ago.  We gathered supplies and got started.
I think it was supposed to look like this.  It actually looked like this:

I kept trying different colors, to see if the newer or fuller nail polish bottles would work better.  My pinky looks the best, but it was still pretty rough.  I can't really imagine how someone could get it as perfect as the pictures on Pinterest show.   When we started the project, I thought it would be really cool to blog about.  After my total failure, I figured I might as well go ahead and share anyway.  Just keeping it real.

  1. Water marbeling is so freakin' hard! I still have yet to perfect it! I cannot believe how awesome some people can get their nails to look with this technique!

    Some tips that I've learned, though, in case you want to try again: put on a coat of color first before marbeling, don't use a "quick dry" formula of nail polish (I've definitely made that mistake!), use room-temp water, and, you don't have to, but it sometimes works better to combine nail polishes of the same brand.

    Hope that helps you out, if you try again! :)
