Here I'm wearing 3 coats of Catrice Apropos Apricot with a marble on my middelfinger of Apropos Apricot and I Scream Peach! from Catrice and Watch Out! from Essence. Shall I just pretend it was ment this way? ^^ Ugh, I don't know why, but me and marbling is a fail combo!
I tried it with normal water and with bottled water, but the polish just doesn't spread so well. If the first drops spread decently, the rest won't. I tried to drop them from different heights, and in the end I just placed drops next to each other and marbled like that.
That was somewhat successful, although no fancy patterns then but I can live with that for now. Next time I'll just try a different brand polish and hope that spreads better. I almost emptied a bottle of Catrice in 2 attempts, yikes! Luckily drugstores have sales, lol.
But my main issue is the dipping, somehow I keep getting a big splash of polish on my fingers instead of the nice marble that's in the cup, or bubbles in the marble, or a waterblob under the polish. So far I only managed 2 nails properly, and that was both this time and the previous time my middlefinger. My other fingers seem to have issues with the way I place them in the marble or some :P
Anyways, I'm hoping one of you has the golden tip for me! :)
As requested, this one's for the lovely Chris from Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes, who supported me during my marble attempts. Here's how my placemat looked after removing my old mani and failing with this marbling. Last time it looked worse, at least that's improving, lol.
After taking the above off I reswatched China Glaze Blue Iguana. I wasn't happy with my previous swatches, these turned out better I think :) I also added these to the review post instead of the old pics.
