Dry Water Marble trial

I first heard of dry water marbling from More Nail Polish's Blog post and I knew I just had to try it out. Basically, you transfer the water marble pattern on plastic, let it dry and then transfer the color to your base color.

I used Essie's One Day without Blues and Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost. I really need to work on my technique. I think I need to watch some of Colette's videos. She's a water marble genius and I know I could use some pointers! LOL. Anyways, here's what I came up with. This was over my Zoya Gemma mani from last Friday:





Not too bad for a 1st try ☺
Thanks for looking!

  1. It looks great, especially if it was your first try! Getting a good pattern in the water is so damn hard for me, Colette makes it look so easy!

    1. Ugh, I know, she makes it look so easy too! LOL. I love the look so much, that I'll have to keep trying! I really like the "dry" method because the cleanup is so quick.

  2. I really like the shape of it!
    But the color... ok, no offence, but bad combo and this green is REALLY bad T_T

    1. ha ha, no offense taken! Yeah, maybe Gemma wasn't the best choice for a base color 8-)

  3. Not bad for a first attempt! I like the colour combination :) Plus I had never heard of dry water marbling... So thanks for the tip! I might have to try that sometime! See, even when I spread chocolate on bread I manage to end up with chocolate on my nose, (wet?) water marbling is out of my reach!

    1. I soooo recommend the dry method. The clean up is so much easier than dipping your nail in the water (which I've tried before). I just have to work on getting a better patten next time.
