Water Marble Wednesday - Neon

I really think this is my new favorite day of the week, but I'm not gonna lie.  This weeks water marble was a bitch.  Smashley Sparkles and I decided on neon colors with a flower design.  First, I couldn't get the right combination of colors.  They were just running together forming muddy, unrecognizable blobs...gross!  Then, I couldn't get all the colors to spread so I was getting layers of skin and then gobs of polish all in a mish mash.  So I just started switching out polishes and colors and making shit up just to get through it.  Finally 4 HOURS LATER, I completed my first finger.

LOL naw I'm just kidding, but for real.  It took me nearly 4 hours to successfully complete this.  However, I've received more compliments on this water marble than any other I've done to date.
This is my right hand and the first hand I completed.  I forgot to show my thumb, but it's just my accent nail so it's a solid color.  I definitely think this came out more psychedelic, 60s looking rather than flower petals, but I sure did try.  I guess it's just how you look at it. 
This is my left hand.  I was so fed up with these colors that I just wanted to do a couple of fun accent nails with the water marble.  I meant to do my thumb too, but then I forgot and painted it orange.  Oh well.

WHAT I USED:
Sally Hansen White Tip - 2 coat base color
China Glaze SeƱorita Bonita - purple
OPI Dating a Royal - blue
China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada - green
Zoya Paz - orange
Sinful Colors Pink - pink

Happy Blogging!
