Painted Polish by Lexi PSL Watermarble Nail Art + Tutorial

Yo lacqueristas,

Its past fall and its definitely past the season of PSL's.  I don't care! As I sit here writing this post I'm drinking a pumpkin Blue Moon and thinking fall is the best.  Yeah I know spring is just around the corner flowers and all that jazz, but I'd be happy if pumpkins and all things fall existed year round so I could indulge especially if they are as beautiful as this PSL nail polish from Painted Polish by Lexi!

For whatever reason I struggled with my photos today.  I will say I miss my long nails.  These are so short and if you notice I had yet another cut down again! Gah!  I'll tell you something about short nails.  For me they break with more ease than long ones because the edges catch on every little thing and break.  It kills me.  Please grow quickly little stubbies!

Watermarble: In The Name Of Polish Clearly Marbles & Essie Licorice

This is the base Painted Polish by Lexi PSL.  I believe its retired.  I've had it for about 1 year and this is my first time breaking it out. That was a mistake.  It's gorgeous as you can see.  If I were to compare it to my microglitters from Cupcake Polish I'd say these were a bit larger, but equally holo. They catch the light every where I go.

This watermarble is the most simple one I've ever done.  It's my first time also using In The Name of Polish Clearly Marbles.  I'd been looking for a clear polish that watermarbles forever, and unfortunately I could never get my hands on PDP Clearwater.  This one was recommended by one of my followers on IG.  I'm so glad I was able to get this! It works so perfectly it hurts.  This polish is definitely going to get a lot more love from me.  When I bought it it was the last one in the shop otherwise I would have gotten several in one shot since the feedback was very good for it.

See how the glitter is much more apparent here? Definitely a bit larger than my Unicorns.  It's also in a clear base so you have to layer it on quite a bit.  I believe all told this is three coats.  I would say it would be best to apply this polish with a sponge in hindsight.

I know lots of ladies have problems with watermarbles and actually Cristine of SimplyNailLogical has taken to calling us those that can pull them off witches.  Lol!  Funny but totally inaccurate.  I promise you its no witchcraft.  Please take a look at my blog post on watermarbling tips if you are still struggling.  I promise it will help tremendously.  Thanks so much for reading and I'll see you next post!
