NOTD watermarble nails

Water marbling... I have been reading a lot about it but hadn't tried it yet because it always looks so messy in tutorials and I tend to be quite messy when it comes to this stuff so I postponed it. But then again, I kept running into it and it does look so nice, I wanted to give it a try - the mess aside... Because of my uncertainty I opted for a clear base coat, that way if I would fail, it wouldn't be too noticable and I wouldn't have to start all over again. Now, onto the result:

I'm quite happy with how it turned out, especially my middle finger, thought it would be far worse. One thing that was/is annoying is the tiny bubbles on certain nails that I got. Any tips on how to get rid of them or not have them?? I used these 3 OPI colours underneath: Makes Men Blush, Pink of Hearts 2, Rumple's Wiggin'. One thing I noticed is that it dries very fast on your nails. Afterwards I applied a top coat as usual.

Before I began my mission, I browsed youtube and ran into this girl who has a lot of tutorials and tips on watermarbling, worth checking out as she is really good at it.I also used her method of taping of your fingers, this way you don't need to do a major cleanup of polish remover on your fingers and it worked like a charm. I will certainly try marbling again but next time with a coloured basecoat...

Je ziet het niet zo goed op de foto :( Misschien komt het door al die neutrale kleurtjes.

It's not that bad, I thought it would be worse. Give it a go, I'm sure you can pull it off.
