A Blurple Water Marble

5:31:00 PM

First, hello to all my new followers!! Thank you so much for reading. I love showing you all of my polishes, and thought I would show an old NoTD to you. It didn't turn out the best, but it is still pretty cool. I used China Glaze Coconut Kiss, OPI Dating a Royal, and OPI Black Onyx for the marbling. Underneath I had one coat of Pure Ice Skinny Dip as "underwear." I love mixing blue and purple, so I am calling this one my blurple water marble.


I was a bit disappointed in the opacity of this manicure. I wanted it to be bolder, but I still like it how it is. One thing that bugs me about water marbling is that sometimes I get weird bubbles when I do the design.   Does anyone know how not to get bubbles like that?

Anyway, I liked this mani. It was fun enough that I didn't remove it like 12 hours later, which I usually do.

  3. Great job on the water marble! I like the colors you chose. To get rid of bubbles, poke them with your orange stick or needle, whichever you use. Also, I hear dipping your nail in slowly and removing slowly will also help to prevent bubbles.

  5. To get better opacity, I'd suggest using more than one drop of each color in the same spot, if that makes sense, or using a smaller cup to do the marbling, like a shot glass instead of a drinking up, because then the polish won't have that far to spread =]
