Failed Water Marbling (AKA Splooge!)

I've watched I don't know how many vids and my results still turn out looking like a sploogie mess! I mean really! Look at those things! Makes me feel even worse that my middle and index finger nails broke earlier this week. I've been mourning ever since!

Xs imag1442 Cecilia Brown I couldn't tell you what's wrong. I have absolutely no clue. I've tried all types of polish and I just keep making a mess. I hear that if you use boiled filtered water that it works better, some people tap the glass to get them to spread right, and some use a shallower dish. also the temperature is supposed to be room temp perhaps? Again, no clue, but I'll keep you posted the next time I get brave enough to try again XD
Xs avatarfofo Kahaliah Thank God. I used to think I was the only one watching hours of tutorials and still thought I did't do it right. However, I think you are too hard on yourself, I love the middle one and the pinkie. Maybe the polishes weren't good enough ?
