Artsy Wednesday: Recreate Your First Nail Art - Water Marbe

Happy Hump Day folks! Today's Artsy Wednesday theme is to recreate the very first bit of nail art posted on your blog. This challenge is quite fortuitous since Friday will mark my one year blogiversary. And what was the very first bit of nail art I posted? Why, a water marble! Why? Because I was so naive and bright eyed and bushy-tailed that I thought they would be easy! Ha!  I actually cringed when I found out what today's theme would be. I have done only three water marbles since I started blogging (and only two actually made it to the blog). All of which came out wonky and left me frustrated and defeated.  Like all of my water marbles this one started out with such hope!

Ugh! I am not at all happy with how this turned out. I love the color combo and my middle finger came out nicely. Other than that this is a fail for me. I painted my nails with China Glaze For Audrey. For the water marble design I used For Audrey, The Balm I Take My Coffee Matte Black and NY & Co. Millionaire. 

So yeah...not my best work. I wish I had the patience to practice this technique more but I just don't.  Are there any nail art techniques that are your personal Waterloo?
