Hows everyone's weekend going? Gloomy here still and no sun! I know I'm not the only one that feels icky when the weather is icky! It's a book day with a snuggly blanket! Now to convince my son of that! =)
So, I'm trying something new for me! Needle Marbling Art! Drum Roll!
I have seen this all over the web even watched Liquid Jellies tutorial ha ha she does make it look easy!
So first I use Pure Ice - Platinum as the base coats. For the marbling I used WetnWild - Saved by the Blue. Then Pure Ice - Once Again to top it. And you need a Needle of any kind. I just used a pinning Pin for sewing.
The whole goal to this is keeping your polish wet! I have already put 2 nice coats of platinum on all my nails.
I started with my thumb and put one thick coat of Platinum on the nail then a drop of Saved by the blue. This is where you need to work fast so it doesn't dry on you. I just started in the blue and dragged the needle out in a design. sometime I would have to keep dragging the same path to pull more color out where I wanted it! You keep doing this till you feel its done. If you run out of color you can add another drop. But be careful to big of drops will spread and over take your nail. That's what happen on my thumb. To big of a drop and I had to work with this huge blob! I still think it turned out great!
The issues I found with doing this is control of the needle and not wanting to tear up you nails at the same time. But this really comes with practice!
Then I painted the tips differently. I dunno I just didn't want a nice even french tip so they are all different. After I did all my nails I added the Glitter of Once again! I got some awesome shots of how the glitter sparkles. I love how this turned out! Each Nail is different and I got better, I think by the time I got to my pinky.
What do you guys think?
