Graduation Water Marbling!

Hi everyone!

Hard to believe but I'm graduating from college this weekend! I knew I had to do something special, and I got the suggestion to use Chanel Mimosa from fellow blogger Miss Ladyfinger and I had a great idea!

I'll be graduating from the University of Kansas, and our colors are crimson and blue! However, a majority of the time, there is a bright yellow!

I thought it would only be appropriate to do a KU-themed mani! And then I thought...water marbling! 

I'm fairly new at water marbling, so go easy on me! This is only my second time!

I used Essie Red Noveau, Chanel Mimosa and Butter London Blagger

I'm pleased with how it turned out (considering I did it at 2 in the morning after studying for a final!), and I LOVE water marbling! It's so fun to play around with and I love that every nail is so different. 

Have you done water marbling before?

P.S. Posts may be lacking in the next few days because of parents in town, graduation etc. 

This is what I'll be doing this weekend! 


  1. great water marbling! Congrats on graduation, the feeling is wonderful, enjoy your day!

  2. You would never know you were new at it. They came out great. Congrats on graduating. My oldest daughter had hers last week.

  3. The marble is seriously awesome! Congrats!

  4. I love marbling, though I've only done it twice. I did one with just pink and white, it was quite fabulous, if I may say so myself. Might do it tonight, in fact! Anyway, nice job!

  5. Thanks Bee! I'm sure it will look great :)
