#31DC2013 – Water Marble (catch up)

Don’t worry, I’m not going to spam you with all the catch-up I’ve got 😉 I’ll spread it out over the next week!

So here are my water marble nails, that I didn’t post yesterday since I fell asleep early. I know a lot of people don’t like to do water marble nail art, because it’s so messy. Actually, I kind of love it because it’s so messy! And recently, I found some masking fluid (basically liquid latex) in a local craft store. It seemed pretty non-toxic (it’s made for kids) and more sturdy than PVA glue, so I grabbed some, and used that to mask my cuticles. It works so well! But, well if you follow my Instagram, you’ll see that I got a bit carried away, and basically marbled my whole hand…. Never mind, it came out great after clean up!

31DC2013 - Water Marble I used a white base from a brand that I’m not talking about any more because they can’t be bothered to reply to my polite enquiries about animal testing. So I won’t be buying or publicising them any more! And the colours are Barry M Grey and Barry M Bright Purple Nail Paint. A brand that (a) respond to enquiries and (b) don’t test on animals. And their polish generally works really well for water marbling (well, not the glitter, glitter never marbles well).

    Ah I’ve been meaning to try a water marble for ages now. I’m a bit put off by how some have said it’s super difficult! You make it look effortless. I love how fine the water marble is – great work!
