...was a bad idea. lol. I am really happy that Jacki from Adventures in Acetone decided to post a water marble today as well because hers turned out great. Mine? Not so much. It was a good idea in my head but the execution was not what I imagined. Let's take a look.
Why is it so bumpy and weird looking? lol Well that's the result of the "great idea" I had. I thought it would be really cool to use a textured polish as part of my water marble. I started with one coat of a lighter green color that I actually didn't end up using in the design. Then I used Sally Hansen Sugar Fix (the texture), Milani Nail Art Green Sketch, and Hard Candy Envy. I just used the traditional flower design but because of the texture, it didn't come out right each time.
I don't think it's terrible, but it sure isn't super pretty. However, I am glad I tried it. At least now I know, right? Now that I've slightly tortured you with this mani, see Jacki's beautiful water marble HERE. I'm not sure if she'll be able to join me every week, but if any other bloggers out there would like to please feel free. Let me know so I can link to you! (:
