NAGG Catch Up Watercolor

Whew!  I think I am finally over this virus!  I'm not sleeping 12 hours a day anymore, so I have time to get the last few manis for the Nail-Art-A-Go-Go up on the blog.  Although a couple of these have been done for more than a month, I just didn't have the energy to post them.  Enjoy the multiple posts this weekend!

Day 25 is water color.  I decided to try my hand at water marbling again.  Not extremely successful, but definitely and improvement.

The main mistake I made with this is not using a pure white for the base.  Instead I used Barry M Lychee.  Don't know why, I just did.  You can see it most on the edge of my thumb.

There on my middle finger is a smudge of Hands Off My Kielbasa used in the marble.  Don't know how it got there!  I didn't even notice it until I edited the pics.  Maybe from the edge of the glass?

Polish used in this marble:
  • Barry M Lychee for base
  • Revlon Captivate (copper)
  • China Glaze Fade Into Hue (blue)
  • OPI Hands Off My Kielbasa (pink)
I skipped day 26, but day 27 will be up very soon.


  1. Great water marble try! I'm still too afraid to attempt it because of the mess, lol.

    1. Thanks Lisa! I usually coat the skin around my nails with Vaseline or masking fluid. Makes clean up much easier!

  2. This is a great water marble!!

    1. Thanks Ann! I still feel like I have a ways to go on this technique though.
