Nail art with miniature water marble floral design using Picture polish Lakodom, Coral reef and Chillax "Exotic flowers"


Good day darlings, very special nail art today :) I did this water marble design for Picture Polish contest, but unfortunately could not submit it as an entry, because I learned that water marble was not considered a free hand. I end up submitting another awesome free hand mani, and saved this one for a special occasion. Well, birthday is pretty special, is not it? And it also might be my last post for a while, because I'm going on vacation until the end of September. Do not worry, I hope to be able to a write post from time to time and upload some nail art on Instagram, you can check it out here
Now back to the mani, which might be my all time favorite. Did you ever made water marble so beautiful that you wished to put the whole thing on one nail? I know,  I did, and that's why I came up with miniature water marble technique. Unfortunately, there was no time to make a tutorial, but if there will be an interest I'm going to make a separate more technical post with video and pictures of how to make it. For now, please enjoy beautiful photos and do not forget to look at the macros. They show how holo flakies in Lakodom make a beautiful gradient with creamy Chillax and Coral reef, it's truly wonderful. And I'm gladly accepting birthday wishes today :*
