Black and White Challenge Day 9


This is my ninth post for the Black and White Nail Challenge. The theme for today's nails was  water marbling. It is hard to believe that this nail challenge is almost over, only one more nail challenge day left. This is the first time I did water marbling and I had such a hard time. I experimented with so many polishes that did not work at all. 

For this, I applied 2 coats of Essie Blanc. After it dried I started working on the water marbling. This is the order I used the Polishes for water marbling: Zoya Raven, Essie Blank, Zoya Trixie, China Glaze Adore, and at last China Glaze Admire. I really like how my ring finger turned out but other than that it is a mess especially my pinkie and index finger. Hopefully with practice I will get better at this. 

PS: I have a giveaway going on right now. Enter here.

  1. how did you clean up your cuticles so good? I do the water marbling and it can get messy.... looks really good too by the way!

    1. I used the scotch tape around my nails before putting my nails into the cup. I applied the scotch tape as close to the nails as possible so I do not have to clean up much.

  2. I think it turned out great. I love the mix of so many colors.

  3. This is one of the most uniquely colored water marbles I have ever seen. It is very pretty.

  4. I love the one on your ring finger!

  5. you don't need to practice no more, this is just great :-D

  6. This is one of the most unique water marbles I have ever seen. It is so pretty.
