Watermarbling is actually one of the first nail art techniques I ever tried… I’m not sure why I started with something so difficult haha… I guess I really liked the pattern and the YouTubers (especially Colette) made it look so easy! Because of the mess I don’t watermarble very often… I’m pretty sure I’ve done it less than 10 times in 4 years! I’ve been trying to practice more now that I have liquid latex but I still don’t have it mastered. Anyway… onto the nails!
It’s everyone’s favorite time of the week! Blogger Takeover time! This week I’m featuring another fellow Twinsie 😛 Short introduction today so, let’s welcome Steph from Lovestruck Lacquer!
Hi there! I’m Stephanie from Lovestruck Lacquer. I’m from Vancouver Canada and I’ve been nail blogging for about 4 years now. I’ve never done a guest post before and I wasn’t sure what to post about. Originally, I was planning to do a “Then and Now” post but I couldn’t get my camera to capture my gradient 🙁 It kept showing up as one color even though the gradient was clearly visible in real life… blah! I unfortunately didn’t have time to recreate a different old mani so I’m posting this watermarble instead since it’s the nicest mani I have in my unposted folder.
I used Color Club Overboard (2 coats) and China Glaze At Vase Value (2 coats and it was still streaky. You would probably need 3-4 coats to wear it alone but I just did 2 since I was marbling over it)
I love the contrast between the colors. I had trouble with creating nice swirls… I think my polish dried too fast or I was working too slow. On my left ring finger nail the pink bled into the mint color for some reason and created this lilac color… Not what I had in mind but I like it!
And here’s how my right hand turned out. I like how watermarbling creates such interesting patterns sometimes. Hope you all enjoyed my ramblings and thanks so much for having me on your blog Marisa! 🙂
