NOTD: Double Rainbow Water Marble + Tutorial & My First Collaboration!

Excited & flattered to be doing a collab with Karina from BeautifulYouTV =)  Everything just fell into place, we agreed on a theme right away & it was actually a look I'd already half-planned to do.  Rainbow!  And these did indeed turn out to be my birthday nails.
 
After the Rainbow Double Spiral marble, I really wanted to do a design that showed off all of the colors in the China Glaze Island Escape collection (Senorita Bonita, Blue Iguana, Cha Cha Cha, Electric Pineapple, Papaya Punch108 Degrees).  I just kept the design really simple & I'm very pleased with the results:
 

Favorite nails are left index, middle, ring & right thumb:


& here is the tutorial:
 
 
Be sure to check out Karina's look too!  Thanks for reading.

  1. You're videos are so informative. I love them. I would like to see how you clean up your skin around your nail once you remove the tape.

  18. this is amazing but sure you hear it before. I wish to ask you something. You change the water after you done one nail or you use the same water for all the nails?

  22. I have to thank you thank you thank you.. I discovered your videos on YouTube earlier today and fell in love with the water marbling. After watching.. oh, a dozen or so of your tutorials I decided to give it a try! My nails are super short, so it's a basic swirly pattern... I LOVE IT!!! It was so easy after watching you do it. Thank you!! I am a definite fan.

  24. Hi, I happened by this video by chance after looking for some ideas on what to do with my nails, and this is AMAZING. I'm a new fan to your site! I just tried this one out this morning, and while they're not nearly as gorgeous as yours, I'm soo pleased with it as a first attempt. I'll be reading your blog regularly from now on for more tips and pointers and ideas on new colors. You're awesome!!

  25. I absolutely love these! I want to try it, but I'm afraid I'll make a huge mess, or screw it up.. lol

  26. For an easier cleanup, use a small makeup brush and brush the tip of your finger with Elmer's glue.Be careful not to get the glue on the nail. After its somewhat dry, dip your finger as you would. Pull your finger out, let the polish dry then peel/roll the glue from your finger.

  27. RHONDA - sorry LOL but that doesn't sound easier to me than tape - tape only takes a few seconds to apply & remove for me =)
