In this week’s guest post at Eleven.se I’ve combined some of the Deborah polishes that I’ve been showing you during the last weeks in some kind of a water spotted manicure. I’ve combined a little bit of water marbling with the water spotting technique creating a marbled look. Here is how I did it:
- I only used blues and greens to create the effect, starting with my base Deborah Tiffany. I protected my nails with tape but you could also use Vaseline or liquid latex.
- I started the process of water marbling by dropping Swimming blue and Deep Blue in concentric circles, you know, the same way as if I would have done a water marbling.
- Instead of creating shapes into those circles, I continued as if I was doing a water spotted manicure, by spraying from a distance of about 10 cm from the water surface. Any spray will do the work.
- I dipped my nails into those patterns. For me, it works best dipping one nail at the time. This way I can control which pattern to put on which nail. I also use the pattern for more than one nail, depending on which part I like from the pattern.
- I remove the protection of my cuticles and I topcoated the resulting nail art.

Beautiful color combination! :)
Thank you :)
Det här blev riktigt snyggt, inspirerande!
Tack så mycket Emma :)
It is beautiful! I need to try with two colours as well :)
Totally, and if you try with colors that contrast a little more, the effect will be even more visible :)
