Another mani with Clearwater. I *swoon*. Being able to marble over gradients is awesome! Although this is a bit of a franken-mani. It reminds me of the ridges and scales on a dragon, hence the title of the mani.

The white creme I used to start with was taking over too much of the water. So I tried two other whites…and they did the same thing. Anyone have a good marbling white? I ended up just going with it anyway, but I wanted thinner lines! To even the white vs. colors out a bit, I went ahead and added dots over the white.
