31DC2013: Day Nine - Rainbow Nails

I did two manicures for Rainbow Nails. First I did a water marble.

This was my first attempt at a water marble and I found placing the design properly on the nail a bit tricky. For this look, I used all these polishes - Sally Hansen Hard As Nails White Tip, Avon Decadence, Barry M Gelly in Blackberry, Key Lime, Mango, Rimmel Riviera Red.
Hopefully when I do the water marble again for this Challenge, this experience will come in handy!

I decided to give the rainbow nails another try and came up with this.

For this, I used Barry M Gelly in Blackberry, Guava, Key Lime, Mango, Barry M Matt White, Sally Hansen Insta Dri Grape Escape, Konad Yellow, Rimmel Pro Riviera Red
I painted a line with each colour and finished it all off with Rimmel Rock Your Colour Glitter Topcoat.

At the end, I thought that even though the water marble wasn't as successful as I had hoped for, it still looks kind of artistic and quite pleasing. I am definitely looking forward to trying out this technique again!
