Let It Snow #4 Christmas!


Merry Christmas <3

Yesterday you saw Spirit of Wonder which looks like a blizzard or... candy. I knew I'd have to tackle a watermarble eventually and here it is. The first ever.

I used tap water, lukewarm, and for polish I used Julep January and the Windows Polish Bar teal that I got for free =P I also used some clear polish from Golden Rose to try to show the basecoat through.

First up, the importance of tape...

 Above (second picture) is my right hand, the first attempt. I first tried to use Sinful Colors Irish which did not show up AT ALL so I did January first, then went back and used the Windows polish.

After much acetone...

There was a tape mishap on my index finger but otherwise it's not THAT BAD for a first attempt right? And you kinda think of candy canes? Maybe? =D/D= Unfortunately I left my Seche at my boyfriend's house so this may not survive very long. It also bubbled. I think I wasn't fast enough with the dipping or the poking for a design. I'll remember that for next time.

(I realized later that it looks like toothpaste by the colours. OOPS xP)

Any tips for a rookie watermarbler?

Check everyone else!!


  1. Is that Windows polish? As in "Microsoft Windows"?

    I envy your ability to do water marbles without just looking like a technicolour sludge monster!

    1. Yeah! Microsoft Windows keeps having these Polish bars to advertise their phones and if you let them paint your nails (ugh!) they'll give you a free polish. I got this in my Snowflakes week and entered their contest. Since I stood there for so long and asked nicely they let me have one anyway. =P

      Thanks! I definitely wasn't fast enough though xP It had dried on the surface before I'd stuck my hand in!

  2. Indeed it does look like toothpaste! That's exactly what I was trying to find the words to call it XD I think everyones first water marble experience is close to a disaster. But don't give up! Try, try again :)

    1. Probably a good reminder for this time of year, right? =P I'll try again! I'm gonna try Adventure of the Nail Friends' aurora tutorial for new year's and that has a watermarble step. This was a good first try ^_^
