Dry (Water) Marble

Hello, everyone!  Well, after the debacle that was my attempt at water marbling, I decided to try out the dry water marble. Okay, so technically, I guess it's just a "dry marble".

I wasn't sure how this "experiment" would turn out, so I decided to buy a few Wet n Wild 94 cent polishes to use.  I pulled up Enamel Girl's Dry Water Marble Tutorial, pulled out my ziplock baggies, and got started.

At first, I didn't have my colors right and I got a mess.  Not enough colors.

Okay, so then I paid closer attention to the directions (haha) and used a base color plus four colors for marbling.

Oooh - much better!

I waited a few hours, peeled them from the ziplock bag and cut them into nail-sized squares.  I polished my nails and waited for them to dry until they were slightly tacky.

Because of my bad water marble experience, I thought - this must be the part where my experiment goes badly.  But wait - so far so good!

So, I did have some issues with removing the extra polish along the sides.  I used polish remover and a q-tip, as well as a little bending and tugging, to remove the edges.

And look - it came out pretty well for a first attempt!

Oh my goodness!  I'm so excited to be able to get that marbled look!  I can't wait to try this again!

Thanks for stopping by, Konaddicts!
