Creative musings in bright colors

This is one of the more intricate water marbles I have ever attempted! I just played with greens and kept swirling them until I was happy. The result looks like hills (at least to me)!

They key to this manicure was to add many many layers of polish to the water. This meant that the layers stayed thicker and thus dried slower, so I had more time to swirl on the water without the polish sticking to my swirling brush!

Most water marbles (at least those that I have done) tend to have larger or more organized strokes, and look like…something intentional. This was just plain fun.
