31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 20 Water Marbled

Hello, Loves! This post is a bit embarrassing because it was my first attempt at water marbling and I wasn't happy about the wait it turned out. I didn't want to start over because I was frustrated so I just left it lol.

When I first began I was in a hurry so when I dunked my first nail in the water, I forgot to protect my surrounding cuticles so it was a mess. I used Vaseline to protect my other cuticles so it wasn't as messy as the first nail. During the process I had left the polishes I was using open so I could easily use them to drop polish in the water. I'm a klutz so at one point I accidently knocked over one of those polishes -_-...I don't think I'll be doing this anytime soon...

So here is my sad attempt:

  2. Aw haha I'm sorry about a) not protecting your first finger and b) knocking over a bottle of polish. I've done that before.

    I'd say this is a good first attempt. Better than me - I've never tried it yet. I don't think I have the patience!

  4. I think it looks really cool. It reminds me of smoke in the air for some reason. Very abstract looking. Hope you give it another try ;0).

  21. This is pretty, yay for blues! I haven't tried watermarble yet but it seems interesting. I'm a klutz too, so I'd be worried. About a week or so ago I was painting my nails and knocked my cap-less nail polish remover off my desk and onto the floor.. needless to say, I need to buy a new bottle. :(
