30/31 Day Challenge: Day 20 - Water Marble

These last 10-ish mani's - some of em are tough (ie SUCK!)
I hate water marbles.
This is not to say I do not like them at all, I just don't like doing them. I am very impressed by what others can do with them, but I've tried them twice, plus a few guinea pig attempts on my boyfriend, and I just failed failed failed so bad I swore I'd never do one again.
Now, I could have faked it for today and stamped it or needle dragged it, but I sucked it up like a big girl and tried it again.
I actually didn't hate it. I started last week, assuming I would need a full weeks worth of trying to get one decent shot at it, but I kinda nailed it the first try this time. It's not great, it's far from perfect, but I liked it with the exception of something weird that happened on the index.

For this marble I started with a base of Orly Au Champagne. I marbled with Julep Brandt (a very dark dark grey), American Apparel Pink Ladies (a salmon pink) and OPI Pink Friday (a pale blue pink)

I so loved the color choices I picked for this, they worked together so well!

My favorite part of this water marble was my pinky. I loved the bleeding dots that made it look like a butterfly.

And now, please check out the other ladies in the 31 Day Challenge and their Water Marbling efforts:
