I TRI-ed to Do Another Needle Marble...
The end of another month, the end of another set of Tri-Polish challenges. Let's finish this month with an awesome, awesome blue - Lilypad Lacquer Sherbet, said to be a dupe for Enchanted Water For Unicorns. I don't know for sure, because that's one I could never get my hands on. I'm happy with this, though, it's so beautiful, pigmented, and bright.
I keep trying to do those darn marbled nail arts. Neither with nor without water seems to work for me. I was going for a look inspired by a needle drag mani by I Can Do That. Mine is called, I Tried To Do That, but No. *sigh*
What do you do with a mess? Slap on some more polish! I added dots with Butter London Old Blighty, a creamy brick red, and my trusty white and black stripers.
I think it looks kinda aquatic, with bubbles or something.
Like I say, when it doubt, add dots. If it looks abstract enough, no one can tell you screwed up.
Bottle shot: Lilypad Lacquer Sherbet, Butter London Old Blighty, and nail art stripers in yellow, white, and black.
Any helpful hints for doing marbled nails? I seem to be perpetually blocked with that technique! Is there some makeup or nail art technique you are just hopelessly fumbling with?
