Today’s challenge is Water Marble.

Nail Polishes and Materials Used:

  • PurpleOPI Purple With A Purpose
  • Hot Pink – Kit First Kiss
  • Peachy Pink – Zoya Happi
  • Pastel Pink – Innisfree #116
  • Holo Glitter – Wet ‘n’ Wild Kaleidoscope
  • Topcoat – Essence Absolute Pure

As you can see, these are not truly water marbled nails. You have nooo idea how hard I tried to get the stupid marbling to work properly. I think my polishes just don’t play nice with water…I tried lots of combinations and brands but to no avail. So I gave up and painted some faux water marble stripes with a fine brush. I used a base coat of Purple With A Purpose, then painted stripes with Happi, First Kiss, and #116. I topped off the stripes with Kaleidoscope for some extra glitter.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Watermarbling is a pain!! I find that polishes with glitter/shimmer never work – so frustrating!

    • I was thinking that it might be from the hard water or something, but I have no idea lol. It was so frustrating that I gave up!

      Also, I was totally thinking it looked a bit like Twilight Sparkle! Hehe =)

    Awesome alternative look. I just posted a tutorial on water marble. Believe me first few times I failed hard and that was like 3rd or 4th attempt and still got some bubbles.
    But yes, tap water maybe too hard, so you could try with filtered water.
