New31DC: Day 30 - Your Favorite Nail Art Technique


Hello there!  For today's theme in the New 31 Day Challenge we are all going to show you our favorite nail art techniques...  I bet you couldn't have guessed before hand what mine would be!  Of course it is water marbling.  I actually feel like I haven't done one in forever, so I was glad to have the chance.


Since I've already informed you of my obsession with pastels at the moment, I thought I would do a pastel marble.  These colors all worked so well together, so this was an easy marble.  I used my usual base coat of OPI Funny Bunny.  I just did one coat of that before marbling over it.

For the colors in the marble I used Depend Nr. 354 (my new go-to lilac), Depend Nr. 347 (a lovely pastel peach), China Glaze Refreshmint (the pastel mint green), and OPI What's With The Cattitude? (a baby blue).


I chose to do a random marble instead of a regular pattern across all the nails... I think this is a fun change sometimes and is interesting to look at.  I also threw one coat of Orly Prisma Gloss Silver, a silver holo micro glitter similar to China Glaze Fairy Dust, over top.


Yay for water marbles!  I missed doing these.  Shall we see what everyone else's favorite techniques are?
