Soft Water Marble

Hi everyone!!  I'm still on vacation, but I wouldn't leave ya high and dry!!  
Before I settled on my mani before I left, I had a little fun with two of my Luduranas.

I started with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow for my base, and then used Ludurana Supremo and Maravilhosa for a water marble.

The marbling was really interesting to do with these, because for the first several rings in the water, the colors appear identical.  Also, after dipping your fingers in the water, the holographic particles spread a great deal, so it may seem as if you will not be able to completely clean the surface of the water.  An easy trick for this is to lightly blow on the top of the water, and then clean the excess.

I hope you all enjoy - and I'll be back tomorrow!!!

Happy Painting!


  1. Wow, those look great! I love watermarbling, just not the time it takes to do it. Maybe I will do one in the next little while :D

  2. I love how subtle this is. The first time I tried a holographic marble was the LAST time. Disaster.

  3. Beautiful! I haven't had much success doing watatermarbles with holo's before because they dry very fast maybe this brand is the way to go!

  4. I love it! i wish i could do something like this

  5. Marble nails are spectacular....I would love to try the amazing effect of this manicure...Thanks for the tutorial....:) and have a nice vacation....

  7. So beautiful!! I actually prefer the 'softer' style for watermarbles, because they look so pretty and dreamy :) Great tip about cleaning up the water, too!
