31 Day Challenge Day 20 - Watermarbling (It's a fail!)

Hey....

So we meet again. You, with your cup of water and polish mess. You with your infuriating and unattainable beauty who makes me feel inadequate. It's you....watermarbling!

Lol, sorry, I'm feeling a little dramatic because I've barely slept. Yesterday was watermarble day and I had a test so it was late last night that I was able to attempt some watermarbling. I warn you, it's not great. What has me extra sad is that my last marble was moderately succesful. Oh well, win some lose some.

For this look I started with a base of white and used China Glaze Peachy Keen and Gothic Lolita and Bettina Ocean. 



Meh. This sums up my feelings pretty well:


Please go see some much better watermarbles by my challenge buddies!

    1. Thank you so much! I think if I showed the look I was going for, it would show better why it's such a fail for me :P

      I do like the color combo though, it's a little different from what I always gravitate towards.

    1. I laughed so hard at the 'Neener'! I have to say, I followed your advice and changed the cup I did the watermarbling in and it's definitely helped! Thanks again :)

    1. Well I just thought, why not Zoidberg? Y'know? :D You may think my water marbles are "better" than yours, but I still haven't mastered needle marbling so...yeah.

  10. wooowww this is so pretty! Watermarbling is something I don't like because it usually becomes one gigantic mess. I want to do this too!

    1. Haha it was a big gigantic mess for me too! I still haven't cleared my polishing table of all the polishes I pulled out to try :P. Trust me, if I can do it, you can too! :)
