Twinsie Tuesday ~ Holiday Gift ~ Water Marble

[cf-shortcode plugin=”cft” field=”Hidden Thought”]

Hey dolls! The theme for today’s Twinsie Tuesday was to give another Twinsie a “holiday gift”. The assignment was to give a “gift” that would be challenging for the other person to complete. I was absolutely dreading this and had every reason to. Chelsea from Nailed Blog tasked me with completing a water marble mani. Grrrrrrrr….I knew this was coming. I’ve only attempted to water marble once before and it was a horrible failure. I didn’t have high hopes at all going into this week’s look.

My first attempt was to do a dry water marble. I thought that it would be an easy way out. Wrong! It looked a hot mess. So much of a mess, I didn’t even take pictures. Next, I decided to give a traditional water marble a go. I began with Essie School of Hard Rocks, a dusty green that leans slightly teal. The formula was good and was opaque in two coats. The accent nail for the marble was Essie A Crewed Interest, a light peach cream. To create the marble, I only used School of Hard Rocks and A Crewed Interest. I thought using more than two colors would be too much of a challenge for my beginner skills.

Surprise, surprise! This was the outcome after one attempt. It turned out much nicer than I thought it would be. I didn’t want to push my luck, so I wasn’t going to attempt to do another nail. While I’d like to thank Chelsea for pushing me, I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing another water marble any time soon. How do you think my first marble turned out? Be sure to take a look at what the other Twinsies came up with for this week below!

  14. […] to do better), I attempted to recreate Amber’s look around 9:30p last night. Huge mistake. My previous marbling experience consisted of using one polish. It was quite different trying to use three. Amber’s look […]
