So I tried again.
My first attempt I didn't know to use a base coat of color, but it still turned out "okay" for my first real attempt and I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell ya, that my guy actually loved them! I did tone-on-tone with purples. I used SpaRitual I Am the Light, Ripple Effect and Shoot for the Stars. (I don't usually have clean up when I do my nails so I really haven't mastered that yet. Apologies in advance...)
Since that went over so well and I got so many compliments from my man AND the clerk at Ulta, the SA at Dior, etc. I decided to keep practicing. I wore a black, purple and creme blouse so I coordinated the colors and used a base coat of Milani White on the Spot with Milani Black Swift, Milani White on the Spot and SpaRitual Shoot for the Stars.
Still having trouble with clean up even though I taped my fingers beforehand. Guess practice makes perfect with that as well.
I see all the lovely water marbles in blogs and on google image searches and I wonder if I will EVER be able to do it that well. Only time will tell! Have you tried water marbling? Any special tips or trick you'd like to share?
