Nail Art // Water Marble Decal Nail Fail with the China Glaze Road Trip Collection

Water Marble Decal Nail Art Fail with the China Glaze Road Trip Collection

Hello hello! I have a quick look to share with you today from my last attempt at water marble nail decals... Not my worst attempt but definitely NOT my best! I did this a while ago using a few bright and gorgeous shades from the China Glaze Road Trip Collection. Check under the cut for a closer look!

I think my problem this time was that I didn't let my base coat dry enough before I applied the decals... As such there are weird lumps and bubbles and whatnot that are slightly visible through the water marble. :( It's too bad because these colours seemed to marble pretty well and I love how bright and bold the shades are. Maybe I'll add this look to my endless pile of "looks to try again." SIGH.

Ah well. We all have nail fails! Just gotta try to take them as opportunities to learn.

Thanks for visiting! xx

  1. I love the way this turned out. If you didn't point out the problems, I wouldn't have even noticed that there was a struggle bus to get there! I love these colors together, though. They are so bright and fun!

  3. Too bad the transfer to the nail didn't work perfectly - the colors are amazing and I love your pairing with dots!

  10. Love the bright colors you used! I have yet to try this technique because it seems like it would be harder than it looks. I honestly didn't notice any fails and really cant see them even after you pointed them out.

  11. I'm still trying to perfect the water marble nail decal - so don't feel bad. Mine keep coming out like yours, so if you get better at it, tell me how! LOL

  12. Oh no! It still looks lovely, but those decals can be hard to get right. The first one I tried wouldn't smooth out no matter what I did!
