And that means it is time for another 31 Day Challenge prompt! I cannot believe we are already on Day 20! I know Miss Sammy was not looking forward to today's prompt. I'm not sure about Miss Rie but I don't think she was too excited either lolol. I remember when I used to dread marbles. They are still not my fave to work on. I love the finished look of marbles but I'm not fan of the actual process of doing them.
The other thing I can't seem to master is the swirls. Some girls can get such kick ass designs and swirl patterns on their nails using this technique. I seem to get blocked when it comes time to swirl my colors and I always end up with random patterns and no clear defined design. Instead of going for something specific this time I went for a flowing floral type of look. For this marble I used this image of a Parrot Tulip as my inspiration for the colors. Mr.LTHP said this reminded him of '70s Style dresses... I see it too.
This look started with a base of Two coats of one of my "go-to" shades, Cult Nails Enticing. For the marbling swirls I used Bettina's Ortensia, Yellow, Glacinto and Zoya Monica. I wish everyone had access to Bettina nail polish. The texture and pigmentation of the Bettina polishes makes them perfect for watermarbles. I topped the whole mani off with some Seche Vite followed by a coat of INM Northern Lights. I really love the contrast of colors in this manicure and how the sparkle from Northern Lights looks like morning dew.
Now don't forget to stop by my challenge partners Rie and Sam's to see their Marbled looks for day 20!
