Today's Twinsie Tuesday prompt is "Marbling (dry/needle/water)." I have watermarbled a few times before but I never managed to get neat lines/shapes. I was planning to give it another try for this prompt but I just didn't end up having time this weekend :( I actually ended up doing this mani and post Monday night (currently writing at 12:45 AM local time! lol so last minute this week :p) So I decided to try drag marbling again instead. I've tried drag marbling a few times before but gave up and took it off because I would always get bald spots from my lines. This tutorial from Simply Nailogical was quite helpful and colors for this mani were inspired by @sveta_sanders.
I didn't have a black that bled as nicely as hers but I liked how the base color was close to my nail color so any bald spots weren't obvious. I managed to "swirl" polish back into most of the bald areas this time anyway :) I accidentally ended up with too much black on my ring finger but I'm happy with it overall. It's a huge improvement from my previous drag marble attempts which never even made it on the blog. I think my middle finger is my favorite.
Base is Am I Making Myself Claire? from Nicole by OPI's Modern Family collection. This is a really nice soft lilac creme. It looks a bit more pink in some lighting. Formula was perfect. I did the marble design with Avon Rapid Black and my tiniest dotting tool.
Don't forget to show the other Twinsies some love!
