Now, letter W has forced me to get out of my comfort zone and... water marble a little! I have to confess I was completely stuck with this one; I kept looking for ideas starting with W and all I could picture in my head was "who". Yup. What was I gonna do with that? No fucking idea... UNTIL my brilliant Boyfriend suggested water marble as the most obvious idea ever. <<I. Am. Proud.>>
So that's what I did. Although not to push the limits of my abilities too much, I kept it simple and... do-able, let's say. Because when I mess up my manicures, or when I try stuff that does not want to come out as I imagined or when I just suck with anything polish-related... When that happens, you don't want to be near. Lucky you, reading this from the other side of the screen. But my neighbors? They're all signing a petition to ban nail lacquer from our building - (they took the idea from the British postal service, which classified it as über-duper hazardous).
Whatever: here's my first try at water marble. WWIII can wait: I am pleased.
The base is Kiko Sugar Mat nº 644 in Sea Blue, and it completely "blued" my mind [ha.ha.], it's just gorgeous. Its glitter shines even in the shade, and the textured effect is subtle yet visible. What you see is two coats, although I could have done just one.
Bonus badass-hoarder picture:
I hope you enjoyed!
Haha, I would be starting a WWW3 with you!!! Awesome water marble!!! I haven't attempted this technique yet and will not... Because my own hubby will kick me out of the house for cussing so much!! ;)ResponderEliminar
it turned out beautifully!ResponderEliminar
Hahaha!! The marble turns out great! I have actually 90% gave up watermarbling (make that 99.99% instead) LOL! I just can't deal with the mess and etc etc. But I do love seeing people's attempt and success at it :) Love Kiko Sea Blue! Such a pretty colour!ResponderEliminar
It's turned out very well, well done! Lovely colours =)ResponderEliminar
(I can't imagine they really have a case to ban polish, Royal Mail only have because they're transporting it! Obviously it's a flammable liquid but I think as long as you're storing it properly and not keeping it in front of a radiator then it's absolutely fine!)
Haha!!! Love the photo at the bottom. You did a fantastic job with your water marble!ResponderEliminar
Qué lindo diseño, me gusta cómo has combinado los colores, pero sobretodo las texturas de los dos esmaltes. Me tengo que animar con el water marble. Es genial que tu novio te ayude, jajaja yo le voy a preguntar a ver qué diseño quiere que haga mañana ,) a ver qué me dice... jajajaResponderEliminar
I'm one of the hugest fan of water marble so... Very well done lady!!! :)ResponderEliminar
ps. I'm desperately in love with Kiko #644... What a stunning color!
Funny! The last photo is a such a true reflection of your bad-ass personality! Your water marble came out successfully, I have to say! Mine did not, I have to find another W to work on.ResponderEliminar
I love how BOTH our boyfriends suggested our manicures for this week LOL. I am terrible at the water marble. I haven't attempted it since I first tried it, which was a complete disappointment. I really love how yours turned out though! Its great :)ResponderEliminar
And I love the last photo LOL
Great job here! Marbles are challenging, but you really can't argue with the results when they go well :)ResponderEliminar
Great job! Your water marble turned out great! It "blued" me away!!ResponderEliminar
Que valor de usar esta técnica! Es todo un lío. Yo solo lo he hecho una vez y no me quedaron muchas ganas de probarlo de nuevo!ResponderEliminar
Gorgeous polish and I love the water marble, moreover the fact that your boyfriend came up with that idea :DResponderEliminar
Hehe. That is a fantastic water marble, and I'm quite amazed that it's your first try. And "water marble" is totally clever and appropriate for W... great suggestion from your boyfriend (I'm amazed he knew what that was)! :DResponderEliminar
Hi! I really like your blog! You are very cool! I will be glad if you'll join me!ResponderEliminar
OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mani so much!!!ResponderEliminar
And I am so proud of your BF for the idea and of you - for your first yet amazing water marble!!! WAY TO GO!!!
Btw - since you mentioned it, I could have come up with tons of mani ideas for "Who" - as in the one and only - Doctor Who!!!
You really need to start watching some!
Great minds think alike! Love your accent wm!ResponderEliminar
