31DC2015: Day 20 Water Marble

I love water marble-manicures, but I’m having such a hard time figuring them out.. I create a nice bulls-eye, create a great pattern on the surface, put it on the nail.. But somewhere along the lines, something always goes wrong.. I dunk my finger at a weird angle or place, I drag the bulls-eye once too many and ruin the pattern..

I like water spotting much better, but this challenge is about pushing your boundaries.

I thought I’d try a sheer water marble over glitter since that is less dependant on a great pattern. It looks alright, but I’m going to have to practice a lot more to get a satisfactory result.
