New Weekly Feature! Water Marble Wednesday

 Zoya Pippa, OPI Planks A Lot, OPI Mermaid's Tears

Hello!!  I am so excited to present my first post in a new weekly feature, Water Marble Wednesday.  While I was participating in the Girly-Girl Challenge, I was lucky enough to make a great new friend, Danielle from Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll!  She lives in Houston as well and we got together last week for Bahn Mi sammies and some polish shopping at the nail supplies in Chinatown, which was so much fun!  I saw that she had this weekly feature on her blog and asked her if she would let me join in on the fun.

This week our theme is Spring/Easter colors!

I had some trouble with this because in my mind it was necessary to have a yellow in my design, and my only yellow creme polish is Zoya Pippa, which just did not cooperate too well with the water.  It didn't want to spread properly, and made this all very difficult!  I will have to add another yellow to my collection to use with my water marbles in the future.

The other colors I used were OPI Mermaid's Tears, and OPI Planks A Lot.

I wanted to do a swirl pattern, which is so difficult for me.  I feel like every time I attempt this the colors get too muddied together for my liking.  I guess I will have to go watch more videos from Colette at My Simple Little Pleasures.  I'm pretty sure she is everyone's water marbling idol, me included!!


  1. I still really like how your swirls came out! Very springish colors and I don't think they look muddied. Some of the nails might have used a little more yellow, but as you wrote, your yellow didn't behave very well. I still like it a lot though!

  2. don't do yourself down, these have worked FABULOUSLY XXXX

  3. Ash, if you have an Ulta nearby, they have some really great yellows, though I have no idea how well they work for marbling. I got Sun-sational for someone in a polish swap and it's a nice, bright, sunshiney yellow. I think these look good, though I can see why you'd say some of them are muddied. I'm still jealous of the marbling at all... WAY too scared to try!

  4. This is beautiful! I love the yellow! I think I NEED Pippa.

  5. Love this! It came out so pretty - great spring colors!
