Hey guys, how's it going? I'm being a little polish zombie again today. It seems no matter how much sleep I get I still always feel tired. Like about to pass out on my desk. I have quite a few things to post up throughout today so get pumped. Ohh Yeahhh (imagine the Kool-Aid man saying it). I actually gave you guys a preview of this the other day on Instagram, if you're following me you probably saw it. It's my watermarble attempt using Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Electric Summer polishes. I actually did individual swatches and a review on half of the collection the other day, you can read that here.
Like I mentioned in the review, the Xtreme Wear line by Sally Hansen is absolutely fantastic to watermarble with. With these beautiful pastels, I just couldn't resist combining the collection for this look:
I don't think it came out too bad or rough. I'm still quite the novice when it comes to watermarbling but I do try to at least get one in a month. Practice makes perfect after all. I do apologize for the way my skin looks in the following photo, I didn't remove all the cuticle oil before taking the shot. Watermarbling can be quite messy and requires a lot of clean up. That's a lot of acetone, so I usually drench my cuticles and skin with oil before and after cleanup.
Polishes used are all from the Xtreme Wear line by Sally Hansen.
- Base: White On
- Pearl Up
- Wet Suit
- Teeny Bikini
- Water Orchid
For this marble, I rotated the four colors about 3 times so that they could all be visible. There are so many tutorials on this technique that I didn't feel there was a need to make one. Especially because like I mentioned, I'm really new at this. Once I have some more practice though I'll be sure to share my tips and tricks.
If you have some tips for me I'd love to hear'em. I need all the help I can get! How do you guys feel about watermarbling? Love it? Hate it? Let me know down in the comments. I know I don't always reply but I do love reading what you guys have to say.
