Flip/Flop February Day 3 - Watermarble / Dry Marble

Today's choices are Water Marble or Dry Marble. 
I chose to do a water marble because I struggle with them.

This is the glass that I use when I do a water marble. It is a small glass dessert dish I found at a second hand store. I used room temperature distilled water as we have well water with lots of calcium and rust in it.

I am happy to say that I consider this to be my first truly successful water marble! I love the way that this manicure turned out, I think one of my biggest problems before was not only getting the right kind of polish, but the right color combination.

I used White on White by China Glaze for my base color. I had to use three coats to get the get the consistency and coverage that I wanted.

I alternated drops in of Royal Velvet and Oh Cabana Boy by Orly and Rainbow and Reggae To Riches by China Glaze into the water. I used a toothpick to do the design. 

I completely forgot to either use chapstick, tape or vasaline to protect my fingers so cleanup was a real pain in the butt. All that aside I LOVE the way this mani turned out!!!

Polishes used:
Base Color: White On White by China Glaze
Water Marble colors: Royal Velvet and Oh Cabana Boy by Orly and Reggae To  Riches and Rainbow by China Glaze
