Well. I had some ambitious plans to do a water marble mani for W, but that failed at that. So here was my back up, a glitter, from the Cirque du Soleil collection.
Whirled Away, China Glaze.
Re-fresh Mint, China Glaze.
Below is my failed attempt at water marbling. I had tape all the way around my finger, but I had it on so long I got tired of it and took it off. Now I know why everyone tapes the sides of their fingers. Anyhow. I spent an hour trying to get a suitable marble pattern in the water.
My problem was the polish kept setting too quickly. I don't know if it was the polish or I was just not working fast enough..... I watched a bunch of videos, and tried a bunch of different polishes, no luck. I also used room temperature tap water, then tried room temperature filtered water. It did not seem to make a difference. I had to give up. I may try again later.
I have new found respect for ladies that can water marble!
The base color is Orly's After Party in case you are wondering. Sinful colors Savage is the marbling color I really wanted to work with.
Well that is it for today.
