|Water marble before scrubbing clean up|
I started out with a base coat of Seche Natural. Next I added one coat of China Glaze Cheers To You. I did several test runs of what base color would look best and the silver in Cheers To You seemed to really make the colors pop. Next I did a water marble of Zoya Edyta and Zoya Kym. I did 3 drops of Edyta and 2 drops of Kym for each nail. Because both are glitter nail polishes, you have to be careful with the way that the polish disperses in the water. I did not actually swirl the polish because it kept falling apart when I did that, so I just went straight down with my nails in the best possible spot. To keep my hands (semi) clean, I used petroleum jelly all over my nails down the joint but even then you can see I needed some clean up. I finally ended with a topping of ManGlaze Matte-Astrophe Clear Matte Top Coat to give it a nice satin look. Only problem with the matte was that it chipped a tiny bit in some places.
I did have issues with both my pinkies. On my left hand, I just let it be, but on my right hand, I cheated and just laid down a base coat of Kym and added some swipes of Edyta.
Here's my left hand in the sun and then the shade. The sun made the matte top coat look non-existent, but it was there. I did the manicure on Thursday morning and just took all these pictures on Christmas Day, so it lasted a good while.
Next is my right hand, sun and then shade. You can see how I cheated on the pinkie.
Yay! Water marbling checked marked off my list!
