Upon a Purple Sea

Awesomely fun water marble! I knew I wanted to use a bunch of purples and Clearwater by Pipe Dream Polish, but I had a lot of trouble figuring out what to use as the base which would peek through! I had somehow forgotten that I had a light purple scattered holo polish, and it worked beautifully!

Seriously though, Milani wins the award for “polishes that don’t dry out even if you forget about them for years”. I honestly cannot remember the last time I used this polish (at LEAST a year ago) and it is still as flow-y and wonderful as the day I got it! It also still takes three thickish coats to be opaque :-p

I also managed to dip all 5 fingers in one go! I just kept marbling and swirling. The last (ingenious) step was to circle-swirl the marble, so the nails didn’t look uniform at all. Voila! Super easy.

Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrows mani is terrible. Potentially terribly awesome (my boyfriend loved it) but it made me cringe to wear it, so here’s your warning!

  2. […] stamping was done over the shades of purple water marble you guys saw a few weeks ago. I liked the marble so much I took pictures of it independently, but it was never meant to stand […]
