So I’m still sick, which means another bright mani for cheering up. This time I decided to give water marbling another chance (I’ve never had much luck with it, I don’t normally have the patience needed) and lo and behold I was successful! I wasn’t going for any particular coherency with my design, but love the pattern that ended up on my ring finger the most. 🙂
As you can see in my Instagram pic for this mani, I chose these colours based on this month’s Real Simple magazine cover because they really popped for me. Unfortunately, Fly turned out a lot more blue and less turquoise than I remember, so my colour matching wasn’t perfect. 🙁
One thing I want to mention is that Sinful Colors (or at least this particular colour) was the perfect consistency to use for water marbling. With OPI I find if your drip is too big it just sinks to the bottom of the cup, and China Glaze sometimes doesn’t spread out on the surface of the water enough. I didn’t have either of these problems with SC. So if you haven’t tried SC for this technique before I would recommend it for next time!
What I used to get this look:
