Who please can help.
I have tried this and the efffect is quite weak, but I have seen other examples on the web which look fab! Could I being using not enough varnish or the water too cold?
Please help :D

Hiya

You need Layla.................Layla, where are you? :D

Check out her website, or you can try doing a search because I'm sure she's gone through the technique before.

you really need the water to be room temperature and it works best with creme polish, not a shimmer one

Ah Im here! lol!! maybe a lil too late... :rolleyes:

Try using cold water, and dip your nails in before the polish spreads out too much. If the polish spreads out so that its becomes very translucent, your marble design will look more 'weak'. If you dip in the nails whilst the polish on the water is still thick, the marble design will be more full in colour and more vibrant.

Get the jist :?: :!:

Hope it helps :)
