Nail-Art-A-Go-Go - Day 25 - Watercolour (Glitter Watermarble)
Hi guys, and welcome to Day 25 of the NAGG. Today's prompt is watercolour, and I decided to have another go at a watermarble. You can see my first and second attempt here and here. Today's wasn't entirely successful either, but I am super pleased I found a way to do a glittery one........
I'm not sure if anyone has done this before and I've just forgotten where I saw it, or whether I had a genuine stroke of genius, so if you have seen it done somewhere before, I would be very grateful if you could let me know where in the comments :) Anyway, I have always heard that glitter polishes won't spread out in the water properly, so instead, I used a base of Sinful Colors - Hottie, a blue jelly packed with iridescent glitters. Then after it was dry, I did a watermarble with LaFemme - Pluto (a deep blue with purple shimmer) and LaFemme clear polish.
I'm nowhere near good enough at watermarbling yet to draw any set pattern in the polish, so I just went for any random pattern I could muster. I like the results though, some nails are darker, and some are more sparkly. I think the middle finger is my favourite though, I love how it turned out, although I was really pleased with the pinky too.
Overall, I would call this mani a success, although I still have a long way to go. That's it from me today, but I will be back for tomorrows prompt, and that is a mani I really loved, despite a rather hefty amount of smudging during top coating :D
