31 Day Challenge Day 20: Watermarble

Watermarble day. Well if you've been following me for awhile you know that me and watermarbles don't always get along so well. It's been a struggle, but I think I finally succeeded on all 5 nails! :D

When I was deciding what colours to use I was having a hard time. I kept leaning towards my safe blues and I really wanted to get out of my blue comfort zone. Then I was having dinner and went to pour some Fruitopia and voila! I knew exactly what colours I was going to be using!



I used China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze 108 Degrees and China Glaze Cha Cha Cha. The first time I tried these over Gaga For Green and I just wasn't loving how the pink was showing up. So I scratched that and used Milani White On The Spot as my base.

I learned that I'm not very good at drawing more complicated designs. So I tried this one that was only 3 strokes in the water! And I'm pretty proud that I kind of managed it on all 5 nails! Wooohooooo!

I was planning on drawing a fruit or writing Fruitopia on one of my nails, but honestly I was so proud of this that I didn't want to cover them up! :D

I know these aren't even close to being perfect, but I'm very pleased with them! I think I captured the Rapsberry Kiwi Karma Fruitopia very well! :D

Make sure you check out The Lacquerologist to see what awesome watermarble she's come up with! :)

  2. Wow, I didn't realize water marbling was on the challenge list. Diabolical! I recently tried it myself and things did not go well at all.
