I was in the mood to do a water marble the other day, but I thought I would mix it up a little bit. I played with a few different ideas but I eventually decided to combine the water marble with a color blocking design.
The base color is Julep Susie and the water marble is done in Carrie and Janel. I was asked, on my last color blocking post, to do a tutorial. If you are interested, I have a tutorial posted on my blog here. It’s a simple and fun design. The color blocked water marble was done in a very similar way. After blocking off my nails with the striping tape, I did a regular water marble. Then, I painted just a couple of blocks a solid color. Then, I removed the tape and added a top coat.
This design was so fun to put together and to wear. It’s something I’ve never done before and it’s something different to do with a water marble.
