Today I have for you a stunning watermarble manicure from Ida aka Ida Nails It! Ida usually does swatches but I managed to convince her to do nail art and it came out amazing! I can't do watermarble so I admire hers very much :) Enjoy the post...
Hey all! This is Ida from Ida Nails It. I have been a long time follower of Lucy's Stash and was more than happy to be able to guest post for her while she is away. I have always loved her nail art and knew that I had to do some sort nail art of my own. For my post today, I decided to go with a look that shows off a few things I love: neon polishes, dots, and water-marbling.
Yes! That's right, I said water-marbling! If you had told me a year ago that I would love to do water-marbling nail art, I would have said, "NOPE". Well, after a lot of practice and most importantly, finding polishes that spread well, I have more than come around to this nail art technique.
I decided to go with bright neon colors from the Pipe Dream Polish A Night in Vegas Collection, specifically On the List, Light of Day, 110 Degrees, All In, and V.I.P Pass. There are many neon collections out there (and I own more than a few myself) but I find myself going back to the Pipe Dream A Night in Vegas Collection, as they do really work well for water-marbling.
After I water-marbled each nail, I wanted to go one step further and added some black dots to accent. Because everything looks better with dots! Using a dotting tool and my go to black polish, American Apparel Hassid, I free handed random lines of small dots. I really liked how these turned out, with the black contrasting against the bright neon colors.
I hope you have enjoyed my post for today and thank you Lucie for having me!
