Firstly I’m sooo sorry for not sharing my winter white makeup with you guys yet!! I accidentally lost the pics I took of them at the party :( So I have to redo the look to take some new photos, and this week has just been tooo crazy :P
But I will never skip my weekly Thursday Nail Art post! And today I’ve got some pretty purple waterless marble nails for you:
I started off with my normal clear base coat & then a coat of Tip Top NailChic – Surfer Girl on all my nails.
I then randomly dabbed on my 3 colours:
Tip top Nailchic – Surfer Girl
Tip Top Nailchic – Cream Puff
Tip Top Nailchic – Purple Rein
And used a strip of plastic that I cut from a plastic baggie, to ‘press down’, by wrapping it around my nail, and ‘mushing’ the colours into each other.
Which gave this kind of effect :D
I then followed with my normal Yardley – GEL LAC Overcoat as my top coat.
A good tip, is to do the dabbing and ‘wrapping’ one nail at a time, because you do not want the polish that you dabbed on to dry too much before you can ‘mush’ them into each other.
I really struggle with the water marbling technique, and maybe I just haven’t practiced enough, or used the right kind of polishes.. But this ‘waterless’ marbling is much easier to do! And relatively less messy ;)
So again.. I plan to to my Winter White Makeup post early next week.. And hopefully I won’t be disappointing you guys again ;)
