Day 20 Water Marbled Nails – 31Challenge

**Caution Picture Heavy **

Wednesday morning, just like any other day, we are getting ready to leave for work. I am taking my dogs down the basement to their kennels and I busted my butt halfway down the stairs.. Ugh! Apparently the dust pan fell down from the hook on the inside of the basement door wall and down I went. I slammed my hand into the concrete wall trying to break my fall. Yes, I cried like a baby, and hey rightfully so, I made three pretty deep “holes” on my knuckles. I am pretty sure I saw muscle, or something very white. 😦 Don’t worry I will save you from a picture of that ! This was probably the only day I was not wearing heels which is unusual for me, and I am extremely thankful, whew. Anyway that is why I have been lacking with the posts this week. My right hand has been extremely sore and it’s been hard to do this next challenge with my that being said. 😦 but I am back! 🙂

I attempted the Water marbling Challenge twice this week, once on Tuesday and I was just not happy with it, and then today, which came out better but it could still use some improvement. I feel that this is a challenge that definitely takes some practice.

I looked up numerous tutorials, none in particular to post here, Some people put tape on their fingers, some put vaseline. Some used white as a base, some used a nude, and some used a flat color. I chose white.

I chose a few different purples for the Marble look, I wanted each nail to look unique. I used “Zoya – Charisma”, “Milani – White”, “OPI – Grape, Set, Match”, “Nicole by OPI – Back to Reality…TV”, “Ulta – Celebutante”, “Nail-aid Peeling Nail” as a base, and “Looks Wet, Ultra High Gloss Top coat by inm nails”

I started out with my thumb and the heart look, however this was the only nail that I was able to get a good heart out of, please see two fail heart nails 😦

The rest of my nails, I just alternated the colors and kept swirling until I had a design I liked. Even with the tape, there was still quite a bit of clean up, more than I am used to. This was a fun challenge, but as I said definitely one that takes practice.

Here are both hands prior to clean up:

And here are the individual nails up close like above:

Hope you enjoyed my second attempt at Water Marbled Nails, Attempt one will not be shown. lol Not on purpose either! I meant to take a picture before I took them off to show you, however halfway into taking off the polish I realised I never took a picture; by that point my left hand was nude and my right hand was all choppy from holding the nail polish remover pads. Sorry Guys!
