Experiment With Nail Paint Marbling: Strawberry Swirls

by mehak on February 18, 2011

in Nail Products, Nailpaint

What does a girl do on an off day from work? Goes shopping ? Noone to go with her. Watches tv? There is crap on tv all the time. Browses internet? Done that already. The only thing left to do (atleast for restless girls) like me is putting old nailpolish bottles to good use and experimenting with nail art marbling. Im not exactly ecstatic about the result (but hey, it was my first time trying so i can be cut some slack). I think it looks quite juvenile- something i would wear when i was 13 but maybe not now, still since i put effort into it and did it , i couldnt just let it go waste-  so here it is

Colors Used: Color Bar Hot Pink (#44)
Maybelline Colorama French White

Marbling is actually not that difficult once you get a hang of it- i thought of doing a tute but i thought everybody already knows by now how to do it so i skipped it. Let me know if you want one………..

Right after i spent half an hour doing the above,i got annoyed looking at it , and removed it and put this color below: 
Color: Maybelline Colorama Astral

Usually, i like bright colors, but this is work appropriate as well  and i dont have to keep removing my polishes when monday comes then !

Actually I had no idea what marbling was until you mentioned it in an earlier post. Then I googled it & found out. I liked your first attempt, esp how it looks on your ring finger. I still haven't tried it though. Too much effort when no nail polish has ever lasted more than a few hours on my nails without chipping :(

I've never tried marbling, but I want to soon. Your first try doesn't look too bad to me :) I'm sure I would've done MUCH worse!
