Simple Water Marble using Précision Nail Lacquer

Good morning, dear readers! I have been drawn to red and pink polishes lately, and I wanted to share my latest nail art. I wanted to test out a few of my Précision nail lacquers to see if they would work well for this technique; to answer that question: yes they do! I water marbled three nails on each hand, kept two nails solids, and topped it off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat to prevent chips and make it extra shiny. This is what I came up with:

Check it out: even my thumb is showing here! Posing with my thumb nail showing in photos feels so awkward, but I just had to include it here. 

I'm really loving this manicure for a fun and relatively simple idea for Valentine's Day!

These are the colours I used for my manicure:
Pandora's Box
Baby Rock
Shine, Wine n Dine
Purple Posh
Sahara Deserted Me

Shine, Wine n Dine is the colour of my solid nails and was not used in the water marbling. Although this photo makes it look very sparkly, it did not translate well onto my nails with three thin coats. There was definitely sparkle present, but not to the extent that the bottle would leave you to believe. 

All of my water marbled nails were first painted with two thin coats of Sahara Deserted Me prior to the marbling.

Précision nail lacquers can be purchased here. You can also keep on eye on their Facebook page for announcements on new colours and sales here.

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
