NOTD: Rainbow Double Spiral

I'd like to say first, I did like this mani ... but.  BUT.  I wish more pink had shown up, and I was in a hurry so I had a lot of bubbles on top of smearing several while they were wet.  These colors from the Island Escape collection worked really well for me though, I'm going to use them in another marble after the 4th:
 

My favorite nails - left middle & ring, right middle & pinky:
 

All the colors used:
 
 
 
And of course the tutorial - which I actually shot after the fact, because I didn't have time to record one when I did the manicure:
 
 
Thanks for reading =)

  10. I am so loving the spiral rainbow! I recently did a rainbow water marble, but mine doesn't look as cool as yours! I might have to try this spiral rainbow with the exact same colors you used! =)

  14. I LOVE this manicure! I have such a hard time building the bulls-eye every time I try water marble. No matter how fast I go, the polish always seems to dry before I have a chance to dip. Oh well... Maybe I'll try again soon. Thank you so much for the tutorial! :)

  18. Hi Colette, I think your water marbles are simply amazing. It is because of you that I am learning to water marble myself. I've been a follower of your blog for quite some time now, and I would be honoured if you would follow my brand new blog. The link to it is:

    I really hope to see you there one day soon!

  19. I just discovered your blog today, via YouTube, and I am absolutely inspired. Years ago, I did my nails all the time, but I stopped when my job damaged them too much every day. I've moved on from that job, but I hadn't picked up my nail polish habit again. I will now!

    I'm so glad I found your video about old nail polishes being usable. I was one of those who believed the expires-in-a-year myth, but I hadn't thrown out my collection due to laziness. *laughs* Good thing!

    Also, I was wondering, do you catalog your polishes? If so, what kind of information about them do you keep?

  20. Mind. Blown. This is amazing! Love the colors, the design, the polish itself.. awesome :)

  21. LOVE!!!! Seriously, this is possibly the single-most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life. Ever. EVER! I stumbled upon your blog through another nail blog, and saw this mani.... Firstly I am so jealous of your nails - despite my best efforts, mine practically commit suicide as soon as I get a free edge; but secondly, this design is crazy brilliant, if I had the skills and patience to do this, I would seriously never ever remove it. I love it!

    Regards, Anna :)

  22. UNREAL!!! I am working with some new Shatter polish tonight (thumbs up!) and it inspired me to check out youtube for nail art. I am always after new techniques and have never seen this. Your water marbling is FAB!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  23. I love your nail designs & have been doing mine every week now for the past 2 months:) It's fun & creative. While I'm still fairly new at this I would love to see something where you show how to get different design looks for your nails. Sometimes mine get too jumbled up when trying for something with my orange stick.

    Thank you for sharing & I love the rainbow design here!!!

  24. Love your blog! i have been experimenting with the water marble technique and have a couple of questions. Is it best to use all the same brand of polish?? It seems like the dry time varies and i am running into dry spots with my stick. Also, I keep getting bubbles on my nails. Am i dipping too fast? the tiny ones arnt a big deal but i got some bigger ones this time and they kind of ruined the look.

    Thanks!
