Tri Polish Tuesday - April - Watermarble mess


Hi all!

For today I have another watermarble... a mess... well part of it. I did two nails with a different technique than your standard 'dip your fingers in the water'. Those two are a mess. The normal ones are actually not half bad.


This week's pink, yellow and blue (and some black):
  • W7 - 28 Black
  • Essence - LE Tribal Summer - 01 WAKA-WAKA
  • Catrice - LE Glamazona - C04 Lime Heart Is Beating Like A Jungle Drum
  • Catrice - 400 Blue Cara Ciao



I am wearing WAKA-WAKA as a base (2 coats). For my index and middle finger I tried using a stamper to transfer the polish. I got a lot of waterbubbles caught under it. I later learned that if you dip the stamper at an angle this doesn't happen. I also let the stamper dry and then tried transferring it over a sticky topcoat. The result was incomplete transferral and not a pretty sight. My ring finger and pinky were dipped in like you normally would. And I am pretty happy my ring finger turned out like it should! Perhaps I will get the hang of it one day!



This little experiment taught me that dipping your fingers in is so far still a good technique for me. All that pre-work of taping your fingers etc is just a lot of work.

  1. We live and we learn, right? Thank you for sharing your fails. I think when we share our fails it helps everyone know what doesn't work, so we can all continue to improve technique!

    1. This blog is to record both fail and success, because I tend to forget it otherwise *winks*. I'm already glad I got 2 nails looking nice this time!

    1. It's not easy... and I'm nowhere near the likes of some (e.g. Mucking Fusser), but happy about those 2 good ones nonetheless :)
