Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are all having a great week and don’t worry, the weekend is right around the corner. I decided to finally attempt the water marbling technique for a fun, springy manicure. While it is a lot of work compared to my normal routine, I love it and totally worth it for special occasions.
I started off using Finger Paints Paper Machè for a good base color. Since the colors I am using are so light I wanted to get the most vibrant coloring possible and figured the white would be a great option. For the colors I went with some of my favorite pastels, Julep Martha (pink), Julep Renee (purple), and Julep Bess (blue). The pink and purple were a little too close in coloring so the separation is very muted. I sealed this all with a coat of HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat.
What do you guys think for my first try? While I loved it I felt like I needed some soft glitter to give a more finished and smoothed look so I used two coats of my Seize the Rainbow and then resealed with HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat.
So what do you guys think of the extra sparkle? Water marbling is a ton of fun but I certainly need more practice and need to be a little wiser on color choices. Do you have any helpful suggestions? I will say the Elmer’s Glue on the skin made clean up a lot easier. Be sure to check out Julep for tons of great polish and other great beauty products. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow. <3
