NOTD: Halloween Mummy Water Marble + Tutorial

I feel like Halloween is a holiday that I'm almost obligated to do extra-crazy nail art =)  & so what better excuse to bust out the googly-eyes?  My base for this marble was 2 coats of OPI Calling All Goddesses!, marbling done with CaG, OPI Ti-Tan Your Toga & China Glaze Ingrid:
 

The black I used for the "mask" section was just Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme.  I'm sure there are other places you can run across googly-eyes than where I got them too, you just have to keep an eye out =)  I did manage to smudge a few nails on my right hand but I corrected them as best I could.
 
Here's the tutorial:
 
 
Only about week until Halloween!  Except I don't know if that's enough time to fit in all my ideas ... probably not LOL, a few of the ones I've already done this year have been waiting since last year =)
 
Thanks for reading.

  2. I've seen a couple mummy nail art tutorials online, when I was searching for Halloween designs, but doing it with a water marble is a pretty genius idea. Love this!

  14. You do fantastic nail art!

    Btw, after watching one of your videos, I tried marbling and it ended up a failure. I don't know why but there are times when the polish doesn't spread out when dropped in the water. Can marbling be done using any brand/kind of nail polish?

    Thanks!

  28. I know it's way to early for this but all these Halloween nails have me in the holiday mood... have you ever done a peppermint/candy cane swirl water marble? I want to try something like that when it gets closer to the right holiday :P

  32. This is amazing!! Your water marble skills are just beyond beyond. Seriously. I tried to duplicate this look for my shorter nails and without marbling, I wish you could see it on my FB page. I posted it there after I shared your video. Mine isn't nearly as nice as yours, but I did what I could... I LOVE this look!!! :)

  33. Cutest mani ever! :-)

    Makes me so happy just looking at it! (Especially in the vid where it looks like the mummies are actually painting the rest of your nails...)

    Thank you for making my day and always being so generous with yourself!

  39. MICA - no, not every color works for marble - also be sure to use room temperature filtered water

    K MO - I've done red white & green but not just red & white - maybe this year if I can find a combo that doesn't bleed together

  40. I LOVE this mani!! Especially the googly eyes :-)
