Gold and Red Water Marble


I have another water marble for you today. I used China Glaze Heart of Africa and Midnight Kiss.  Heart of Africa has a super pretty shimmer to it. I'll make sure to swatch it alone so you can love it as much as I do.  Midnight Kiss is a great darker gold shimmer foil and marbled like a champ.



I was practicing designs and was semi successful on this one.  My middle fingers are suppose to be like a ribbon/bow. I was practicing placement when dipping my fingers and am pretty happy with how it came out. On my index and pinky, I wanted stripes to look like the ribbons of the bow hanging down.  My pinky was a total success but my index finger got double dipped at one part so if you look close, you can see it's not right. But if you are not familiar with water marbling, you may not even notice.


Here's a close up of the "bow" I accented the middle with two silver rhinestones




Here's a better shot of my index finger and the mani as a whole.  I like the way it came out and I think if I did this again, I could really get it perfect and be 100% satisfied with it.

Have you guys checked out the You Tube giveaway I'm doing with nail art stuff? I have more videos to post soon as well so comment on YT and tell me what you want to see! :-)

  5. Beauties! Great one to bring back for the holiday season! I just gotta perfect my technique on water marbling. I can waste so much polish doing it. I need to get some cheap stuff to just keep working. I will know if it's not looking right due to the cheap polish formula.
