How to get a watercolour marble look with a sandwich bag
Sorry about the lengthy title for this post. I wasn't quite sure what to call this look. I got the idea from Polish and Pearls where she called this technique a no water watercolour water marble... she must have had trouble too!
So, I have heaps of pictures.... Its really really pretty and I didn't want to miss out on any angles! I also made a tutorial, which you can find if you scroll to the bottom of this post. It was incredibly easy and actually quite fast as I just did it over the top of my last manicure (most of the nails were plain blue). All you need is nail polish and a sandwich bag (or anything similar..)
So here is the left hand:
And the right hand. I love the middle finger here.... I think a gradient would look pretty with this technique.
and more pictures...
And then I went to the beach to take more pictures! This manicure made me think of a stormy ocean :)
And here are the polishes I used :)
Dating a royal and Man hunt are almost identical. I had painted my nails previously with Dating a Royal (from my last post!) and it hadnt chipped yet, so I just went over the top. I used China Glaze Man hunt instead of the OPI as it's more pigmented.
Anyway, especially with the colours I used, it reminded me of that really pretty glass jewelry where all the colours are mixed together. This is called fused glass. Here is some fused glass that looks kind of similar- it's actually a table top! The image should link to the website where I found it :)
And here is how I did these nails :)
As I said it was really fast. The actual marble/watercolour/smear...whatever you want to call it, took only 10 minutes. The clean up took about half an hour though!
Thanks for reading :)
