Water Marbled Skittles!

By now, I'm sure that you've heard about water marbling. If you don't, where have you been? Now, the Queen of Water Marbling is Colette of My Simple Little Pleasures. You can click HERE to here her YouTube Channel (water marbling tutorials!), and you can click HERE to see her amazing blog!

For my water marble, I used the following polishes:


Left to Right: Wet n Wild French White Creme, Wet n Wild 9.0.2.1. Orange, Wet n Wild The Wonder Yellows, China Glaze Electric Beat

When I was doing this manicure, I had time... But I was tired, yet creative. I really didn't feel up to marbling 10 nails, but I wanted to marble! So I went with this! I did the "pointer and middle finger accent nails", which you may have seen on Chalkboard Nails, and painted the remaining nails a solid color! Here's my finish product:


My pointer and middle fingers are 2 coats of Wet n Wild French White Creme, followed by the water marbling with the remaining 3 colors. Wet n Wild 9.0.2.1. Orange and The Wonder Yellows took 3 coats to become opaque, while China Glaze Electric Beat only took 2 coats to reach complete opacity.

I think that water marbling is a ton of fun! It really creates an awesome and extremely unique look! However, it can be very very frusterating.... I speak from experience. This is my only water marble that is worthy of being shown, and it still isn't that good!

And if you're wondering, I cut my nails. A lot. While in Florida, I got a really bad break on my left hand pinky. It hurt sooooo bad. And because I'm a perfectionist, I had to cut all the other nails so that they were the same length. Which hurt a lot too!

So, do you like water marbling? Does it frusterate you? Are you successful a lot of the time? What do you think of mine? Leave a comment and let me know what you think! Thank you so much for reading!
