The Nail Files Thursday: Water Marble Manicure {Using OPI Birthday Babe & A Grape Fit!}



My second attempt at water marble nails turned out MUCH better than my first.


How funky are they!! According to the countless compliments I got, they turned out amazing!


I was a bit frustrated that I couldn't get the same pattern on each nail, I just don't know how the pros do it. They are freaks. I am going to keep practicing. I guess it's more interesting having a different pattern on each nail though.

 

To start off I painted my nails in two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. And for the water marbling I used OPI Birthday Babe and OPI A Grape Fit! If you want to know how to do water marble nails, here is a fantastic tutorial:



I'm excited to experiment more and try out some other colours.
