Muted marble.

Let me start by saying that due to Irene, I was not able to post on Monday and Tuesday. Now that she is finally gone; although so many people are still suffering from her impact, some of us are finally able to go back to our everyday life. Because I was stranded at home, I had nothing better to do than my nails. Since I learned the technique of water marble, I have been wanting to use neutral muted colors to make a beautiful design. So, I gathered some of my favorite polishes and started the steps for water mark nails. Below are the polishes I used in order from left to right: Essie "Merino Cool", Essie "Playa del Platinum", Essie "Smokin' Hot" and Essie "Case Study" (which I used for all my nails as the base coat).

Essie polishes.

Left hand.

Right hand.

As you can see, for some strange reason - or my lack of technique - the left hand came out more stripy while the right hand had a pretty design. I did my ring fingers first, therefore you can see how the designs are simpler. However, I loved the color combination so much that I decided to do my thumbs as well. On those nails, I went all out and got much more polish on them making the designs more intricate. In this case, practice definitely makes it perfect!
