Today concludes the "Patterns" section of the 31 Day Challenge, can you believe it? We're 2/3 the way through! :) This month is flying by!

I just want to start by saying that Water Marbling is a royal pain in the..... as I'm sure most of you already know. Unless you've had luck with it, in which case, I hate you lol. While I love the look of it, especially the extremely impressive marbling that The Nail Network has been known for, I find it very difficult to achieve the desired look.

With that said, this is the best marbling I have done yet, but it took forever to accomplish...

Indoor lighting (Lightbox)
Indirect Sunlight

Once again, the pink was hard to get an accurate photo of, this mani is actually quite bright and "bubble-gum-like" in person (I need/want a new camera). 

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White as my base. 
Then water marbled using:
Finger Paints Well-Cultured Pearl
American Apparel Pink Ladies
China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-le
Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Wild Orchid

Pop over to the other girls' blogs to see their water marbling...
