Spotted Water Marble Take 2

Spotty Marbled Nails

Hi, and I'm back with another attempt at spotted water marbling. I have seen this done and my first attempt was a fail. You see I double water marbled and it looked to busy..


So today I had another go and used a plain base colour.
Rimmel Pop your Pink, and Collection Ebony for the marble.


I added 4 drops of polish, and when all spread I sprayed with some cheapy perfume, which was a tip from Charlie over at Pocket Money Polishes, this creates spots in the polish. I made a quick video :)






If you like this and water marbled nails in general, I have a new group on Facebook.. Marbled Manicures.
Please come and take a look :)
Stay safe and much love..

  2. I love this! Definitely adding it on my list of things to try :) I wonder if you did a normal marble underneath and then use one of the colours from that marble to do the spotted part it wouldn't look quite as busy as the first one?

  7. I like the idea of using the perfume samples I don't like because they work really well, I just get a massive headache when I use them!

    The black spotted really well! Is 'Ebony' the black?

    1. Thanks. Collection polish marbles well anyway, so I knew they would work for this. Yes the black is called Ebony x
