W is for Winnie the Pooh Water Marble

Evening everyone!  I’m so glad it’s a long weekend so I don’t have to go to work tomorrow 😀  That and today wasn’t a very productive day, so I’m glad I have another “do-over” day 🙂
Tonight I have my “W” mani for the ABC Nail Art Challenge!  There are only 4 weeks left of the Challenge, I can’t believe we are this close to the end already!  So much has happened in the last 20+ weeks!  Let’s get to it, shall we?
W is for Winnie the Pooh Water Marble

First, I started with a water marble for each Winnie the Pooh character – Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Winnie the Pooh.
Then I applied my top coat to each nail and stuck the decals I made using my MJ Special Edition plate from MyOnline Shop that I got a while back.  I got this idea from Crazy Polishes’ post and I knew I had to incorporate it into my “W” mani!
The colours I used are:
Index – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Twisted Pink, Julep Carrie and Martha.  I used the same colours to fill in the stamp.
Middle – Julep Parker, Blake and Brandt.  I used the same colours as well as Julep Martha and Kate to fill in the stamp.
Ring – Julep Jessica, Martha and Millie.  I used the same colours, as well as Deborah Lippmann Naked and Julep Kate to fill in the stamp.
Pinky – Julep Parker and Delaunay.  I used the same colours to fill in the stamp.
Whew, that’s a lot of colours!  To create decals, I applied polish to the stamping plate, scraped and picked it up with the stamper.  Then, rather than stamping onto my nails, I used my dotting tool and a toothpick to fill in the stamp outline with polish.  I set that aside to dry completely and then covered the entire design with a thin coat of clear top coat.  When that was completely dry, I pressed down around the decal so that it peeled off the rubber in one piece.  I trimmed the clear polish around the design so that it was easier to apply to the nail.
Then, before the top coat I put over my water marble was completely dry, I lightly pressed the decal onto the tacky top coat, and then topped with another layer of top coat to finish the look.
I am SO in love with this mani!  I am a HUGE Disney fan, and the “cast” of Winnie the Pooh is definitely at the top of my favourites list 😀
What do you think?  Do you love it as much as I do??

  1. Thanks Allie!! I wanted everything to look different for each character, and when I was done I thought that each marble reflected the characters. The first I thought of was the marble for Piglet, I did a spiral marble, and I said to Tyler “I did that cause Piglet's kinda spinny” and then when I looked at the marble for Eeyore, it looked like a “lazy” marble and we all know how Eeyore can be 😉
