I'm Kimi :) Your average eighteen year old residing in sunny UK who loves doing her nails after finally breaking the horrible habit of biting them.
I am by no means a professional, I'm strictly amateur, but I enjoy all the nail art I do :) I really do hope this blog is an inspiration to all you nail-biters out there - this is proof! The habit can indeed be broken :D
I’ve ordered some new supplies and some of them are for earrings! Unfortunately, they aren’t studs, more kind of like a looped back, so the actually ‘gem’ part of the earring hangs down slightly. If sales go well for the rings and earrings this time round though, I’ll definitely invest in some supplies for studs! I’ll post pictures of the drop-earrings when I get the supplies so feel free to message me if you see anything you like :) Colours and whatnot can all be customised :) Thank you so much for asking! :D
One thing that I found from experience was that the polish wouldn’t spread if the water was too cold so make sure you have some at room temperature! I usually leave a cup of water out for at least 2 or 3 hours before I do the marbling :) I’ve never used Sinful Colors before so I don’t know what they’re like, perhaps they’re too thick for marbling? The ones I use are Sally Hansen Xtreme Wears and they are absolutely FAB. Plus they’re not too expensive, if you’re lucky you can grab a bunch on sale for around $2 each (That’s what I did when I went to America :P).
Another thing that might be affecting the spread of the polish could be the distance that you drop it from into the cup? If it’s too far, sometimes the blob of polish just sinks to the bottom. I try not to drop mine any more than an inch above the water.
Also, work fast!! Haha, I love the adrenaline rush that comes when marbling :)
Hope that helps!! Good Luck, and most of all, PRACTICE! Took me ages to get the hang of water marbling so keep at it! :D
