Nail Art: Glitter Water Marble Nails

Hi guys and Happy Easter!  I love looking at people's water marbles on Instagram and Pinterest but my past attempts at trying it have all failed.  And frankly, I don't think these were perfect but to date this is my best attempt.  I started with a base coat and then used two other polishes to marble with.  Here are the polishes I selected:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "White On", China Glaze "Fairy Dust" and Essie "DJ On Board".

I started with two coats of Essie's "DJ On Board" which is a fun neon purple.  I then used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's "White On" and China Glaze's "Fairy Dust" to marble with.  (If you are curious how to water marble I suggest searching YouTube and Instagram where some awesome people - who are better than me - can explain how to do it.)  I struggled this time with the nail polish not spreading out on the water and some sinking straight to the bottom of the cup.  I don't think I used the correct type of water but tap water was all I had.

Overall I think these nails turned out pretty well, though I wish I could get the hang of water marbling because it is such a gorgeous look when it is done correctly.

If you want to know more about Essie's "DJ On Board" or China Glaze's "Fairy Dust" check out my previous posts.
