Afternoon! Welcome back to another Water Marble Wednesday. Today was probably one of the most successful marbling days I've had in awhile. Let's take a look. (:I love the idea of doing different types of nail art over gradients, especially water marbles. It can be a bit difficult though to find a clear polish that wants to cooperate with the colored polish. Today I decided to make it a bit easier on myself and use a sheer glass-flecked top coat instead of just plain clear polish and it worked!
First I did my gradient using China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy - coral, Jesse's Girl JulieG Fashion Friday - purple, and China Glaze Four Leaf Clover - teal. On a side note, I just noticed that I used all polish names that begin with the letter "F". That was not intentional.
Anyway, back to the mani. After my gradient dried, I taped off my nails and started my bulls-eye in the water using a plain white creme polish from NYC and Zoya LA Pop, the sheer glass-flecked top coat. I made a chevron kinda design in the water and tried to dip my nail to where the "points" were completely vertical. I think I pulled it off though. The design is still not as perfect as I would like, but it's just nail art for fun anyway. (:
Now I have to get ready for work so I won't get to talk to you all for a whole 8 hours. With that being said, please let me know what you think of this amazing water marble. You can leave all your comments below and/or comment on my Facebook page. Have a great day! (:
