Watermarbling Fool

I haven’t been doing my nails all that much in the last few weeks…but I HAVE been organizing and playing around with my nail polish and stamping plate collection. Somewhere along the lines I sat down and started watermarbling and then watermarbling and more watermarbling….and turns out I’m not that bad at it.

Formula X Infinite Ombre Watermarble

Infinite Ombre Title

I think I made it to the big leagues, this is my first press sample. (no? oh.)  Preen.Me contacted me awhile back asking me to be part of their Preen.Me VIP program. Preen.Me is a unique beauty site where artists upload looks then describe products and processes they used to create those looks.  Preen.Me then allows consumers to view the database of beauty pictures and they can buy all items described by the artist with a click of a button. This round of press samples from Preen.Me were these dynamic somewhat translucent polishes that pop over silver.

Bleached Neons Watermarble

Maybelline Blead Neon Watermarble Title

I was finally able to get a watermarble to work out well! I have tried many times before, even with highly recommended collections (China Glaze Electric Nights) and had zero luck. I used tap water straight out of the faucet (no bottled water or waiting for it to be room temp). I dropped those babies in there and bam, first nail was miraculous! Be on the look out for my giveaway next week, right here on the blog, for the entire collection of Maybelline Bleached Neons!

The base color is Maybelline Day Glow Teal and the colors in the watermarble are Maybelline Day Glow Teal, Bleached in Peach and Lime Accent. I did not even try for this happen, but I am glad the lime/yellow took over the watermarble to allow everything to stand out against the teal/blue base nails.

The Bleached Neons collection as a whole for use as base colors, eh, they are not self-leveling and require 3-4 coats to even out the patchiness. Also, most of them dried a different color than they were in the bottle. The teal dried more blue, the lime more yellow, and in my previous post, the purple dried more pink.  But they are a dream for watermarbling! I did several watermarbles, but only snapped this picture. They were all beautiful though, I just did not take the time to edit the pictures because they were so similar. I plan to do more in the future though!
