I love seeing all the great marble manicures on Instagram and blogposts. The thing is, I don’t seem to get them right at all. At first, I was using water that was too cold, so it would harden before I could play around with it. Another time the polishes just kept separating in the little container. Another polish would push through the other rings of polish, and rip the design up…The latter is what happened again to me for this one…
One of the other reasons I don’t attempt them as often, is because of the clean up. Luckily all nail bloggers have been utilizing the liquid glue method…and it is just great for my purposes of marbling.
Smear it around the nail bed, and voila. Protected. Unless you are like me and forget how far up you applied it…and dip your finger even deeper.
Oh, I also use a Soju-Jjan (or a shot glass), which I wrapped in plastic wrap. I didn’t want to ruin it, and found this is one way I can avoid it.
Even when I look at the pattern…it looks too…gross. Like polish that was thrown up. Yes…unfortunately that is the only way I can think of putting it at the moment.
Anyway, is there a polish method that you just can’t get the hang of?? I can’t be the only one right?! OTL
