Neon Marbles

Ok, I'm almost ready to admit defeat with water marbling. I just can't get the hang of it, how on earth do people do it so neatly?! I can't even get the polish into anything resembling a pattern on the water, let alone on my nails!

I picked out two from the O.P.I neon range, Life Gave Me Lemons* and So Outta Lime*, along with Cyan Blue from Barry M. I dripped the three colours onto the surface of a small pot of water, then dipped my nails in - you can see a tutorial of this technique here

I got two nails in, so far so good, and then the polish and water seemed to start repelling each other. Everything went gloopy and the marbling wouldn't work at all. I have no idea what changed but after multiple attempts I gave up and stuck with two accent nails instead. I coated the remaining three nails with Life Gave Me Lemons*. Despite this being a bit of a nail fail, I'm quite pleased with how it came out. Marbling on just the two nails actually looks quite cute, plus, I love anything neon!

Have you tried water marbling? Any tricks or tips?
