My Bloody Valentine

Saturday, February 8, 2014

I thought of naming this look as red and pink water marble but as I looked at it more, it kind of reminded me of blood. Hence, this is my bloody Valentine's Day look. I promise that someday I will do a real water marble manicure but for now, I'm liking how easy a dry water marble is.

My Bloody Valentine Nail Art
American Apparel, Sally Hansen

I used American Apparel Coney Island as my base color. Quickly, I dabbed blobs on the nail with two reds in American Apparel Poppy and American Apparel Downtown LA. With a toothpick, I swirled them around to create this dry water marble design. I added some black round studs from Born Pretty Store on the base of each nail. Use coupon code YCL91 for an additional 10% off your order. Finished with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

I kind of went overboard mixing/swirling the colors here but I still really like how it turned out. What do you think of my bloody Valentine manicure?

  7. I really like this! And, you can use it again at Halloween, if you want! lol I have failed every marble I've tried - dry or wet! I always use too much pressure on the dry marbles and end up creating gulleys.

    1. Your right, its perfect for Halloween too! You can always practice not putting as much pressure on it, I'm sure it didn't turn out that bad.
