Valentine's Marble

Hello my lovelies! I really hope you are doing great and the week is not too hard on you. Just a couple more days and it's Friday, so hang in there! Today is Wednesday so it's time for some pink. I only do this from time to time because I'm not big on pinks, but tomorrow is also Valentine's Day and it's the perfect time to post such a manicure. I hope you'll enjoy! 

I'm starting to get the hang of water marbling, but I'm still a rookie in the department. I really wanted to make heart designs and failed miserably. My biggest problem is choosing the polishes that will work well for marbling. I think somebody should make a tutorial for that. Anyway, this design is totally random but I like how it turned out.

I only used 2 polishes to make this because I tried it with 3 and they didn't want to cooperate. The bubblegum pink is Kallos 54, which I also used as a base for the whole thing. The other color is Golden Rose 202, a pink/purple sort of creme. I have no idea why it came out so different on the middle finger, but I didn't want to take everything off and redo it so we'll just say it's an accent finger or something. My thumb is the one where I tried my luck at heart shapes and failed miserably. 

I still think this is an awesome design for Valentine's Day. And if you're not good at water marbling you can also try some hearts or some studs. Do you celebrate Valentine's day? What will you be wearing on your nails tomorrow?

    I think this looks great! I love that you achieved such a pretty effect with only 2 colors! And I'm right there with you about not using pink often, but Vday is a great excuse to try to use it =)

  3. Thank you! I guess the 2 color can look different depending on the way they spread. I'm not that good at this so I do it pretty randomly.

  4. Thank you Marisa! I know you do haha.
