One Stroke to Water Marble

Saturday Nails...


Hello all. The weeks are going so quick, can't believe its Saturday already! Formula 1 weekend too, so even better :) Well anyway I wanted to try a One Stroke Nail Art this weekend, painted my nails yesterday with three coats of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Crinoline, a beautiful neutral colour. Brush is a bit on the big side for me, with these polishes. But managed to paint them ok without a lot of cleaning up to do. Only did one hand, didn't look to bad, but I wasn't that keen. So I took a photo, then took it all off!! Decided to do a Water Marble instead, which if I'm honest was my first thought for today's nails, so I should have stuck with that idea lol.....

So for the water marble I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear, in Blue It, Twisted Pink and Teeny Greeny Bikini. These polish's work really well for water marbling, and spread great in the water. Before I painted my nails with white polish, to make the colours pop, I tried out the Nail Care Polish I bought the other week from my local poundshop. A brand called SUHADA, a ridge filler, and nail repair for split nails. Nice to use, but I did notice the nail repair left tiny strands at the tip of my nail, so could be good to repair small splits in nails.

Taped fingers with masking tape, to save on the clean up after. Some people use Vaseline around their fingers, but I find this leaves an oily residue on the surface of the water, and stops the polish from spreading well. Orange stick and a paper cup of room temperature bottled water.

I drew a large flower in the polish, as I was going for a half petal flower design on my nails. Chose the spot of polish I liked the best and dunked my fingers in. After a bit of cleaning up, and Sally Hansen Insta-dri 30 second top coat (which is awesome and I can't live without!) I was finished. Waited for the sun to take a photo, as a bit cloudy here today, and here it is....






Blue it has to be my all time favourite blue polish. This look so pretty with the flowers in the garden :)
