Second Marble

26 Oct

So after not liking the first marble I ever did, I wore it for 2 days. Last night I took it off and was going to do a stamp mani but then decided I’d try to conquer this dislike of marble manis and their insanely complicated process. So instead of trying the 3 colored marble, I opted for 2 colors instead. I probably should have tried the simple way first but I was being brave. 🙂 So here is my second attempt at a marble mani!

I started off with my base color; Nina Ulta Pro’s “Lilac-ing Discipline”-a soft lavender color. I did two coats of this and let dry. I then started adding my drops to my water. I only used this color and Love & Beauty’s “Dark Purple”- a dark purple with blue glitters. I think I did much better this time at the dragging and making the designs. Still not what I’m going for but I feel I’ve made at least a small improvement. I also did not tape this time. I just dunked and did a major clean up. Taping off just takes a lot longer. So here is the mani!

One big challenge for me is the water beading on the polish after lifting it up. It leaves little rings. If you’re good at these, 🙂 , do you know a way to prevent them from leaving the rings/dots on your nails? Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend! God Bless!
