Easter Mani Watermarble!

Happy Easter Sunday!

Today I have a skittles mani with a couple watermarble accent nails.

I used the Bettina polishes that the lovely Vanessa of Confessions of a Polishaholic sent me a few weeks back. :DD

Right hand — best marble on this hand!

Left hand — first marble on this hand. Not so great.

These two are before I added the glitter coat from Lacquistry.

Polishes used were:
China Glaze White on White (base for marble)
Bettina Cotton Candy
Bettina Birds
Bettina Ocean
Bettina Grape
Bettina Peppermint
Lacquistry Frosty Marrow

I marbled my left hand first and didn't have the best time of it. I tried to dip 2 fingers at a time but because I have stupid fingers and the polish was too dry (and my cup probably wasn't big enough) it didn't exactly turn out too successful. This did however come out pretty well considering I have NEVER done a watermarble before and didn't even practice before sitting down to do this. What you see is my very first attempt. Lol.

After I was done, I wanted to do something to add a little oomph to it, so I added Lacquistry Frosty Marrow to my nails. It's an iridescent white glitter top coat. I almost added it to all my marbled nails too but didn't really like it on them so that's why only my middle left nail has it on. XD

I did mess up my left hand though and only half of my index finger got marbled at first, but I did a coat of China Glaze White on White on top of the half nail and redid it.

Half marbled index finger. Lol.
Before the mess began. :D

It was a very fun trial and I plan on trying my hand at this more. Not sure I could handle doing one nail at a time though so I need to figure out how to do more than one at a time without that first time fail happening again. Hehe.

Until next time, my lovelies~ :)
