Watermarbles are one of the hardest nail art techniques for me. I really hated the mess and cleanup - even with tape or latex barriers, I was making a mess, and not getting the results I wanted. Watermarble decals are a game changer for me!
To make a watermarble decal, you simply let the polish dry completely in the water, and then remove it in one piece. They apply to the nail with a little topcoat, and can be trimmed to fit before cleaning up with acetone and a nail brush. It's still a challenge to find polishes that spread out nicely, and to make nice patterns in the polish, but at least I don't have to make a huge mess anymore.
I decided to use some polishes from the Zoya Whispers collection to make a Ruffian-style mani with watermarbling. Each nail has a different base (except Eastyn is on two nails) and then I used a white striper to create a little contrast.
I love how soft and muted these colors are. If you're not into pastels, these earthy colors might be the perfect Spring colors for you.

I just love how fun and pretty these colors are, and, because they are almost all from one collection, they go really well together!
I decided to frame them in black to hide tip wear. I like the contrast!
