31-Day Challenge #20: water marble

I have to confess, when I saw today's prompt I was pretty scared. I'd never done a water marble before, and everyone said it was the hardest thing EVER, so I was pretty sure I'd screw it up. But somehow it turned out pretty decent!

This is an all-Revlon mani: my base color is Provence (which you can just barely see peeking through in some spots) and I did the marble in Enrapture, Impulsive and Blue Slate. The one thing I would do differently next time is to use a lighter color along with the darker ones to get more of a contrast. But on the whole I'm kind of amazed I pulled this off!

Oh and we're now done with the second chunk of prompts for the challenge, so I made another collage! Only eleven more to go!!

Now go admire all of today's other water marble manis!


  1. That's amazing for a first attempt! Love the colours you've used too :)

  2. I have never done a water marble before either (and I'm a bit behind but I might get up to it this weekend...) You give me hope that it won't be horrific after all. You've managed to make it look pretty easy! I love the colours you've put together!

    1. Haha thanks! It sounds like a lot of it comes down to the polishes you use, so I guess I just got lucky!

  3. Um. This is fantastic for a first attempt. I love the swirls of Enrapture.

  4. I don't get how this even works... But it's beautiful.
