My First Full Water Marble Mani

How are you guys today? I'm spectacular because I get to show you all a first for me, never before had I devoted an entire mani to water marbling. An accent nail here and there was all I had to show for my technique until this mani, and I'm so glad I went all the way with it! It looked great and I got a lot of compliments throughout the week. 
Here are my two best shots showing off both hands. The colours I used were OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Ski Teal We Drop and Zoya Ashley (the first time a Zoya polish has ever touched my nails!) over one coat of OPI Alpine Snow. It's not my favourite colour combination but I don't have too many cremes with me in Montreal right now. I feel like it looks like I was trying to go for Christmas colours, but perhaps by a misjudgment in colour I grabbed teal and purple instead of red and green. Photo spam after the jump!

My roommate took this shot when I showed her what I was doing.

The hand I decided not to use tape on...

The thumbnail had some funky purple mixing with white to form a nice pink, but it didn't really go with the rest of the mani.

Post cleanup :

Thank you guys for reading and I hope to do another water marble too! They always look so unique I could just stare at each nail forever.. 


  1. That's awesome! I can't imagine the time it must take to do a full water marble mani...

  2. These are awesome!

  3. Awesome! Water marbling seems like quite a bit of work so I've never attempted it but I'd like to try it one day. It always looks so cool!
