Pastel Water Marble with Glitter Accent Nail

After all the recent pastel designs I wanted to do another one, but this time as a water marbling. As always it was pretty difficult to get the water marble how I wanted it to look like. But it seems like I found a way to do it right this weekend and I'm going to show you the result of my experiment this week as well. But for today you need to make do with my first version.

I started with one coat of Essie - Lilacism to get a good base for my water marble, so there wouldn't be any gaps in between my cuticles and the design. For the water marble I used Essie - Lilacism, Mint Candy Apple and Lapis Of Luxury, which is almost invisible on the nail. I added alternately two drops of each color to the distilled water and then dragged the polish with a needle. As you can see, not a single one of my nails looked the same and my ring finger nail was barely covered with the marble. So I decided to get some glitter involved and "dipped" my accent nail into Essence - Glitterastic. One coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat on top and there goes my last random water marble. Stay tuned for the next one!
