Eeeeek! A Water Marble

Today's Halloween Challenge is water marble. yay. i just looooove water marbles. not.

But I did them anyway, and my first nail tricked me into thinking that it just might not be so bad this time, but no, it turned out bad. Sighhhh. So I only did three nails, and I turned them into monsters and put a little scream on my pinkie to show my frustration with water marble nails. Oh and to be afraid of the monsters.

Yeah, not so great. I like the index finger, but of course, as soon as I finished it, and went to do the middle finger, I totally bumped it and took a little gouge out of it. Arrrrg!

I started with a base of China Glaze Electric Pineapple. Great color! And this was light enough to act as a good base for the other colors. At least I got THAT right.

Then THIS happened.

Without the monsters and the scream. But it needed the scream, trust me. LOL The other polishes I used in this manicure are OPI Funky Dunkey and Tangerine Scene, Wet n Wild Black Creme, and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Be sure to check out the other challengers who are WAAAYYYY better at water marble nails than me. :)

Also: my next etsy sale is today. The Halloween collection and Scooters 4 Hooters will be for sale at 1pm Pacific Time, 4pm Eastern. These usually go fast, so good luck!


  1. oh my god I love it!! You middle finger kind of looks like a turkey!!! You did an amazing job

  2. I think it turned out great! The ring finger is a flower! (not spooky but very pretty)

  3. I love that you added eyes to it, it really bought it to life. Great job!love it.

  4. I think it looks awesome!!! And one made a flower, look! And they made adooorable monsters.

  5. I love the addition of the little eyeballs! It's so cute!!

  6. Your little monsters remind me of Fraggles. They're cute!

  7. I love the lillte monsters and the scream! I think this looks awesome!

  8. These are great! The addition of the eyes really makes them look so different and unique. They came ALIVE! Perfect for Halloween I think!

    This idea may get me to try watermarble for the first time, because I can turn my nails into marblemonsters if I want to.

    1. Oh good! I hope you do give them a try. I am just a whiner since I hate to do things half way, but I don't have the patience to actually practice to get good at this. Good luck! I wish you much success. :)

  9. Bahahah these are hilarious! I won't try water marbling because I can just picture it being a big mess, lots of frustration, a waste of polish and time and me just removing my efforts and going with a glitter polish and calling it a night. LOL I commend your valiant efforts!
