I'm not exactly proud of this manicure. It was an experiment that somehow failed, but still somehow worked. I did this mani sometime in July or August, I think. Back then, I had seen a couple of really pretty needle marble manis and after seeing a tutorial on youtube, I wanted to give it a try myself. Well, I chose a couple of colors from my untried stash, but I only remember one of the shades. The shade, I dislike the most in this mani.
|Right hand. The better in this case.|
|Left hand. Not so pretty.|
Hm, this marbling requires some practice, too, of course. But what troubled me the most was the different drying time of each of my marble polishes. That made it hard to marble in a pretty manner. I remember the violet to be quite runny. Once you touched the drop and started marbling, it would start flowing everywhere. On the other hand, the white dried really quickly.
So next time, I give this technique a try, I'll test the marbling characteristics of each polish. Just to make sure.
Have you tried this techniques? Do you have any tips?
