  1. Great tips! You gotta just keep on trying with this one...Im yet to master it LOL.

    1. i think the hardest part of it is to find the combination of polishes that will work. Im yet to master it myself too...but i was way worst a couple of months ago lol

  2. Good guide :)
    I only tried once, the water was room temp. but the polishes might have been just a little colder, the dried instantly, and I haven't tried since...

    1. thank you Maria! i hate when they dry too fast. You should try again, water marble manis are beautiful. :)
