NOTD: Green Water Marble for Depression Awareness + Tutorial

I try to do at least one manicure every year for Depression Awareness Month.  I think a lot of people still don't know about it, and just getting the word out there can do so much.  This year I did another water marble, like last year.  Base color is Ulta Limelight, marbling done with Limelight & Nubar Forest:


My favorite nails are - my left ring (flawless!  seriously) left thumb, right ring & thumb:


Here's the tutorial:

All my readers who are fellow bloggers, I encourage you to help spread the word also, if you haven't already =)

Thanks for reading.

  12. I really hope someday I master the water marble the way you have.

    I did my own Depression Awareness water marble, which you can see here http://digitdecor.blogspot.com/2011/10/depression-awareness-manicure.html.

    As you can see, I ended up with a number of spots on the surface from little water droplets. Do you have any tips for me on avoiding that.

  13. DESERTNAILS8 - I actually didn't pick up any of the China Glaze halloween colors this year

    SARAH - My 3 main tips to prevent bubbles would be: make sure there are none in the polish before you dip you nail (you can pop those), dip in & out slowly, and make sure to get rid of any water drops on your nail - if they won't drip or shake off, you can use the corner of a paper towel to absorb them. HTH =)
