NAILS | BCD NAIL ART CHALLENGE WEEK 13 - Dry Water Marble with the Ceramic Glaze Botanical Oasis Collection

I'm sorry everyone, but I have been so tired for what feels like two weeks now. Work has been quite busy and I honestly have felt too tired to even eat dinner this past week. Thank goodness I have a husband who believes in cooking, but oh my gosh has this week been exhausting. Week 13 of the BCD Nails Challenge should have been up a month ago, but I think all of three of us have fallen behind at this point, but I love seeing what Naomi and Traci come up with as well as some additional participants who have been joining us on Instagram!

Let me just start my saying that this is my first attempt at the dry water marble technique, which is "dry" due to the absence of water. I find the traditional water marble very messy and time-consuming so after seeing enough videos, I wanted to take the plunge and try this dry water marble manicure myself!

The key with this type of marbling technique is to use more nail polish than usual and to work quickly ONE NAIL AT A TIME! I started by painting my nails a thick coat of Ceramic Glaze - Urbane* and then quickly dropping blobs of Ceramic Glaze - Perfect Peony* and Ceramic Glaze - Surf's Up* randomly on the nail. Don't make the blobs too big as the polish will start wanting to move down the sides of the nail! Once you have your wet blobs, drag a toothpick or small dotting tool through all of the colours and swirl them around. Some of my nails worked out and others did NOT.

I added a few nail crystals from my favourite nail supply place, Born Pretty, and sealed everything in with top coat. Dry time was surprisingly fast considering how thickly I had globbed on the polish! All three polishes were creamy, pigmented and easy to work with.
