Candy Water Marble

It's such a grey rainy lazy day today and because I really didn't know what to do with myself, I decided to try water marbling. I used to do more of them in the past and I can't believe I didn't try any since I started this blog. :D So here's my first water marble featured on this blog...

I used some of the colors from my favorite China Glaze collection Up & Away and the final results reminds me of candies. :) It's absolutely not perfect but I'm happy with the final result... 


Daylight

Base:
OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener
Water Marble: 
China Glaze - Heli-Yum
Beauty Secrets Top Coat Fast Finish Polish Dryer

I'd definitely try water marbling more often, because it really looks cute but I'm too lazy for that. :D What do you think about my manicure? Do you practice water marbling often?

If you want to see tons of amazing tutorials, check Colette and her blog My Simple Little Pleasures and her YouTube channel, because she's definitely a water marble queen. :) 

Have a lovely day and thanks for reading! :)

Xoxo,
Ivana :k

  1. Lovely Ivana! I don't water marble much, it just takes me so long! I have been wanting to try a few though.

    1. Thank you Tera! I totally agree, it really is time consuming, but the final result is so pretty. :) On a boring day, you know what you'll be doing. :P

  2. It's great! TBH it reminds me of a lollipop :D
    I love watermarbled nails, but honestly I've never tried to do it myself. I'm a bit scared of the final result..I should try and practice, but it's a sort of reverential awe :D

    1. Thank you! :) Yeah, I was deciding between candy or lollipop. :) Maybe you should start with accent nails so you get used to this technique and sooner or later you'll want a full mani. :D

    2. That's a great idea! In the end, better redo one nail than the whole hand, in cases "of emergency"! Thank you for your advice ;-)

    1. I totally agree, that's why I'm not doing them so often. :) But we should try more often, because the result is just so pretty. :L

  8. Odlično ti je ispao! Vidim da mnogo cura koristi ChG lakove za WM, super su za to! Ja ih nažalost imam premalo (čitaj samo 3) da bi mogla isprobati...:S

    1. Hvala Irena! :) Da, ChG su stvarno predobri za WM, OPI, Orly, CC takođe. I poneki Catrice i Essence je isto dobar, zato se isplati malo igrati sa lakovima. :D A i sa 2 WM može proći, zato nemaš više izgovora. :P
