My First Successful WATERMARBLE!

Today is the last day in the SNAAARKM challenge! And today is a dozie. It's a watermarble. Now if you have been with me for awhile you know that watermarbles tend to be the bane of my existence. I know you all said that you loved the one I did in the Black and White Challenge, but I wanted to be able to get some of those clean and crisp lines that everyone manages to get! And guys, I think I did it!

I used China Glaze White on White for my base and marbled with China Glaze Gothic Lolita,  China Glaze Don't Touch My Tiara and White on White. Look how pretty it is! I think what helped this time was that I used filtered water from my Brita Filter. I took it out of the fridge the night before and let it have plenty of time to come to room temp. I then made my design with a toothpick instead of an orange stick. Both seemed to help! I know I for sure need lots of practice making better designs, but I am very pleased with this outcome!

My thumb is my favourite I think. 


Since I have been on a huge accent nail kick I used Aphrodite Lacquers Ambrosia as an accent on my index nail. This is from their Sandbar Collection and is a pink jelly base, with purple and gold medium sized glitters and gold micro glitter. I totally love this polish and will probably have to wear it again sometime soon.

You can purchase Aphrodite Lacquers from their etsy shop and each 15mL bottle will run you $8.00. They are currently in stock so head over and get yourself one! 


I had a lot of fun doing this! And I was ridiculously stoked that I was able to actually make it work! I will be trying more water marbles again to practice my drawing skills.
