Water Marble

Hi nail polish lovers!!!
I recently did a water marble mani and wanted to share it with you guys. I don't do these very often only because I have to have the time, which doesn't happen regularly.  The colors I used were Nicole by OPI Believe It, Do It and I'm a Belieber.  For the base I used Rimmel French Lingerie, which you can see here.  I then topped it off with Essie Pure Pearlfection.

I used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

A little bit of sunlight, lol

I really love how this came out!  When I do water marbling, I don't really have a design in mind because it never comes out the way I want it to.  So I just create the designs as I go.  I think it's nice to have a difference on each nail. 

Fun fact: Water marbling is what lead me to blogging.  I always tried different things with my nails and a co-worker told me about videos on YouTube with this technique.  I started looking at Mysimplelittlepleasures because she's the water marbling guru, which lead me to her blog and to many of the beautiful people I now follow.

Hope you like this mani!  Let me know what you think ;0).
