Water Marble Turkey Nails

I thought it was about time that I give water marbling another go.  I sort of did a bunch of experimenting, and as a result, every finger looks pretty different.  I’ll just say that’s what I was going for.


And here are select fingers from my other hand:


I think the polishes I was using were not really in the mood to be marbled with, because they were not very good spreaders.  I was using bottled room temperature water, so I don’t think my water was the problem…. You know, these close up pictures really show what a pain clean up is after water marbling.  Ugh.

Anyway, here’s another untried that got tried:


This is NYC – Rule the City.  It’s a gunmetal shimmer with red micro glitter in it.  The red glitter sticks to the sides of the bottle, but not a whole lot of it transfers to the nail.  It’s still an interesting polish and I’m glad I have it in my collection, but it didn’t change my life or anything.

That’s all for now.  Have a blessed Thanksgiving, fellow Americans!  Everyone else, have a good forth week of November.

  1. Nice – I like the turkey tail one. 🙂 Water marbling’s great for the stuff you want to look all intentionally bendy and blended, but have you ever noticed that when you’re trying to get that slightly undone look with a water marble, it just don’t happen? Ugh, temperamental water marbles!


  2. Your turkey’s head has the cutest eyes!
    Have you tried painting Elmer’s White School Glue wherever you do not want polish to get on your skin and waiting for it to day before water marbling? The whole layer of glue with polish will peel right off without needing to use polish remover or acetone.
    Enjoy the holiday weekend.
