So at the beginning of February I was going to do a nail art contest. I was super excited for it and totally pumped, and then I kept messing it up. This was my last attempt. One of the themes was candy, so I was trying to replicate salt water taffy using the water marbling technique.
For those of you who don't know, water marbling is when you take a cup of warm water and drip alternating drops of polish in. Then you mix them together with a tooth pick so that the colors mesh and mix together. Finally, you dip your nails in the color and voila the paint sticks to your nails.
For this mani I used OPI Big Apple Red, Zoya Morgan, and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Ivory Skull. I painted my pinkie with Morgan too then did a top coat of ORLY's Shine On Crazy Diamond, just to jazz it up a bit.
I've used Ivory Skull in my Colorful Leopard Mani and I reviewed Morgan in my Zoya 3 Free Special post. Big Apple Red is my stock, solid red polish. It is a creme and becomes fully opaque in two coats. Shine On Crazy Diamond looks like just a basic glitter until sunlight hits it. Then it becomes a holographic disco party.
I am pretty proud of my first attempt at water marbling, thought next time I wouldn't pair red and pink because they just look too similar.
