Creative musings in bright colors

Curtains of Blue

I have no idea what I was going for here. It was basically “blue water marble gradient!” and “hot pink glitter!” so here we go.

I wanted to use my hot pink glitter…but I didn’t want to have to layer it and thus spend 45 minutes removing glitter from my nails. So, I laid down a coat of Raspberry Ice (which I had forgotten I owned…a one-coat hot pink metallic? How could I forget about it?) and then one coat of Cranfairy for the base. Glitters galore!

Once the pinks were dry, I did a shades of blue + clear marble. I should have gone with shades of pink or used a blue base. There is just too much contrast here. Oops!

I do just need to do a full-blue-gradient water marble (without the clear in between) at some point! It’s been weeks since I’ve done a true water marble without Clearwater!
