Ah! Those heavenly swirls!I’ve always painted my nails or had them done, but I really started getting into nail art about six years ago. It all started with watching MySimpleLittlePleasures on Youtube. I was really bewitched by her water marble designs, they were the first ones I had ever seen. I thought it was such an amazing technique that I started trying it myself. For a while the only way I painted my nails was water marbling. It then gave me the courage from there to start my own Youtube channel sharing my water marble designs with the world. Then almost four years ago this crazy new app called Instagram showed up. I signed up not really knowing what it was. I began posting my personal pics and sporadic images of a few of my nail designs. And every now and then I came across new nail accounts. One of my first was Vanessa’s @mrslochness. Warm and welcoming, she had been a true inspiration for me. I gradually started following more accounts and was amazed to see that nail art had become this huge thing.
My style pick? Keep guessing ;)Blobbicure is right now one of my favorite designs. It’s simple to do, but has a fair amount of visual impact. I love to see, how I come up with a different outcome each time using varying combinations of colors and shades. I think, for most of the artists, the hardest design is the watermarble. It has got a lot of components to it that make it difficult. You need the right water temperature, the right color palette, the perfect speed and the perfect room temperature. It also requires a lot of patience and too much cleanup, but once you are done, you’ll surely be hooked.
