First, let's recap on all the blue we have seen over the past month:Chanel's Blue Satin Leopard Print in blue Essie's Lapiz of Luxury Sacre Blue- blue fashion Chine Glaze's High Def Ombre in blue Ikat in blue
Lastly, I would like to finish off my Blue Period with a water marble, my very first water marble, in fact!
This one is blue, of course, but it is also quite subtle.
Follow Gloss's tutorial, with tips and tricks, on how to complete your perfect water marble.
Or, here is a water marble video, from polishandpearls, that I found to be quite helpful:
Using China Glaze's First Mate and OPI's No Room For the Blues, here is what I came up with.....
First paint your nails with the base color of your choice (China Glaze's First Mate) and let dry completely.
Then, make sure to tape around finger nails, for easy clean up....
Next, place one finger inside the nail polish design you have created and hold underwater. Use a chopstick (or some other thingamabob) to carefully remove the excess nail polish sitting in the water around your finger before you pull it out.
When dry (or mostly dry), carefully remove tape from fingers. Use make-up brush and polish remover to remove any left over bits of polish from your fingers. Then cover nails with healthy serving of top coat.
Looking forward to practicing this technique more until I perfect it!
I now bid adieu to this sacre bleu.
