31 Day Challenge, Part 2!: Day 20, Watermarble


Since you know that my time is super limited lately, I was trying to figure out how to so a water marble mani is a short amount of time. At first, I thought about just doing an accent nail, but then I remembered that Bundle Monster has a plate with a water marble stamp and I had that plate (BM 320).

I started with a base coat of NYC MoMa. MoMa is named after the Museum of Modern Art. I only needed 2 coats for this mani. MoMa is part of the In a Minute line and dries nice and fast (I wouldn't say in a minute), plus I really like the brush. They are pretty cheap too so I really should pick up more of these.


As you can see, my stamping didn't work out so well. On the pinkie, I tried Konad Psyche Pink. The colors look cute together, but Psyche Pink isn't as opaque as I hoped it would be. I was having stamping issues so I thought I would try Konad Black with the plate. It sorta worked on my middle finger, but not really. When I was scraping off the excess polish from the plate, I noticed that there wasn't much left on the image. I tried the process several times so I'm going to have to guess that my plate isn't etched very well :(

Check out some other water marble manis below and see if they had better luck than me!

  1. That's so great that there's a stamp that looks like watermarbling! Bummer about the plate, though... I love the colors you used for this, the dark green looks awesome against the bright pink.

    1. It's actually black, but I guessing it is reading a bit like dark green here.

  2. I really like the watermelon colors. And your stamping is still better than mine!

    1. When you look at the stamp on the plate, it's hard to recognize it as water marble.
