Water Marble Wednesday: Pink & Silver

I am by golly going to learn how to do this water marble technique correctly! So to make myself practice, I am doing one water marble each week and posting it on Wednesdays, no matter how bad it looks. Today's manicure used a base color of Orly Au Champagne and China Glaze Something Sweet and femme couture Chrome for the swirls.

I think my lesson from this attempt is that foils don't work very well. I haven't tried a glitter polish yet, so maybe next time I'll do that!


  1. I think it looks really cool! I haven't had much luck marbling with foils either, but I think maybe doing a foil base then regular polishes to marble with would create a similar effect =)

  2. Thanks, Jacqui--coming from someone who does beautiful water marbles, that makes me feel good! :)

  3. Turned out really gooooorgeous! :)

  4. Thank you! Remind me to send you more polish & perfume to express my gratitude. ;)
