my first attempt at water marbling!

So...I decided that I would bite the bullet and try my hand at some water marbling.  I practiced first on some color wheel nails and decided that I had gotten to the point where I figured I wouldn't mess up too badly on myself.  The colors I used were: Sinful Colors- Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze- Shower Together, Sally Hansen- Lacey Lilac.

The first picture is of my left hand, the second is of my right (not quite as cool), and the third is of the ring, middle and pointer finger of my left hand.

I really like the overall effect of water marbling, but I think I need more practice...I made a huge mess of my fingers in the process.  It took me forever to get all the polish off of my skin afterward.  I also need some practice in getting the nails to look more similar to each other.  As you can tell from the last picture, my pointer finger turned out a lot differently than the rest of my fingers.  Also, my right hand was a lot more muddy than my left.

I'm going to try my hand at more water marbling with different color combinations.  I figure I'll use some of my cheaper polishes that don't apply so well for marbling, and that way they won't go to waste :)
