Water Marbled Nails | Dolled Up Daily Blog

Wow, it's been awhile since I've blogged! I've gotta get working on that :)

So one thing I did recently that didn't turn out as expected was trying to water marble my nails! (If you don't know how or what this is, you can search it on youtube for a tutorial video.)

I used all the colors of the rainbow to try to get tye-dye nails, but instead they just looked.. Like a 4 year old painted them.



I did get a lot of compliments however, but it was messy and took forever, so overall I'd say that unless you've got a lot of time and patience, water marbling your nails isn't worth the time it takes to put into it.

How have your past experiences with water marbling went? Have you heard of it before now?

Let me know, expect more posts from me soon!

  11. It takes a little bit of practice to get the same effect on every nail, but it's so worth it. I love it and have done it quite a few times in the past, although it does take a bit of time :) Love nail art in general :) xx
