Summertime Fun Water Marble
Hello Lacquer Luvers! My name is Jessica AKA LuvMyLacquer and I am so very honored to be guest posting for KayJay today. I had no idea what I would be doing for this post but I am absolutely in love with what I came up with. So let’s get to it, shall we?
While looking through my stash, I kept glancing at my Bettina’s and noticed three colors with a theme. Pink Bikini, Flip Flop and Ocean were the colors and I thought to myself “after all her hard work with her dissertation, she will definitely deserve a day at the beach to just relax and have some fun!”
I began my mani with a base of Essie Grow Faster. I prepped my fingers with Eucerin, which is sort of like Vaseline. I know a lot of people use tape, but in my experience while taking off the tape I have messed up my designs. The Eucerin creates a barrier so that the polish doesn’t touch your skin and makes clean-up a breeze since it just wipes off. Next, I began to drop my colors into the water to create a bullseye. Then I used a toothpick and dragged it through the polish to create this design. I dipped my nail into the polish, cleaned up the excess polish in the water with another toothpick, slowly pulled my finger out of the water and voila! I topped this mani with a coat of Good To Go by Essie.
I really like the design for this marble and I think the colors, although I wouldn’t normally picked them as a color scheme, go really well together! I was surprised at how vibrant they remained since I didn’t use a base color before marbling. I hope you all liked this post and, KayJay, I hope you treat yourself to a relaxing day at the beach after all of your hard work! Congrats girl! =)
Jess is such a talented polish friend! I absolutely love this color combination. It amazes me how all of the water marbles that have been done look totally different. Hopefully the beach will be in my near future because I’m definitely ready for a break. Make sure you all check Jess out at Luv My Lacquer where she does all kinds of awesome nail art!
