Happy Tuesday! Because of my super busy schedule over the weekend, I wasn't able to do my nails but it does not mean that I won't be showing off my nail art for the week!
Last month, I was contacted again by the wonderful staffs of StyleSpeak Salon & Spa Journal (India). I've contributed to them my Christmas Nails which was featured January 2011!
One feature was enough to put me on Cloud 9! But thanks to the people working for StyleSpeak for entrusting me with another nail project! I was requested to do a Water Marble Art specifically for The Nail Issue StyleSpeak! How can I say no to such sweet request?
If you have seen my nail art tutorials, you've probably noticed how I don't do Water Marbling because I find drawing my nails therapeutic, and I didn't know I was going to enjoy this nail art design as much as regular drawing!
After a couple of tests, I've finally came up with my favorite shades which is evident that I like them so much because it was the similar color I used as my wedding theme.
Blues and Pinks!
A closer look on how random the lines are but still look presentable!
I finally got my own hardcopy of
StyleSpeak Salon & Spa Journal
The Nail Issue July 2011!

Some tips to keep in mind if you plan to do Water Marble Nail Art ---
- Always test your nail polish by dropping it on distilled water and see if the polish will spread out.
- Do this on room temperature and never do this in front of a fan. It may dry out the polish easier thus preventing it to spread out.
- Be creative, do not worry about color combination but drop as many shades as you want!
- Tape your fingers as this can get really messy!
- Use a sharp tip to spread or create random designs! Each nail doesn't have to look exactly the same so...chill! :P
- When it comes to dropping polish shades, work fast! Super fast!
- For the water marble to show up better, use a Matte White polish underneath. Then once you're comfortable with this technique, you can experiment with different shades as base.
Thanks StyleSpeak India for yet another chance!
I will hold onto the copies for life!
