Thought I'd give this a bash, never tried it before.

The only thing I found difficult was sizing the pattern in the dish so that you actually see it on the nail. The first drop of polish spread out that much that you couldnt see it on the nails.

I thought it was going to be really difficult after reading the threads on here. I searched "marbelling" and it brings up loads of great threads. I really enjoyed doing it, just having a quick break then i'm going to have another go lol. Totally addicted now hehe

those look very nice. I like the pink and white on the top and the pink on the bottom. Did you do it where you use a needle and go around the tip while it is in the water to seperate the polish so it doesnt lap over or did you soak up everything around it for each nail? Personally I use the needle T pins work wonderful.:)

The bottom three dark pink ones I put in at the same time and yes I used a orangewood stick to remove the surface polish before removing (I really needed an extra hand, got in a right muddle). I painted the tips with the same pink I used in the water and the used pink and white in the water

Going to have a go at these tomorrow

Go to galerie on left and click on French Flame. I'll let you know how it goes lol

The one all the way to the left at the top is gorgeous - it looks like a floaty heart! (technical term! lol) The pinks are also really pretty!


I can't seem to come to grips with this but I'm working on it! A video would be great..



..anyone? :lol::lol:
