Well, this looked more like a flower in the cup, but on the nail it turned into more of a starburst. Base coat of China Glaze OMG, marbling done with OMG & also China Glaze 2NITE & BFF (please click to enlarge at least a few of these ... the thumbnail image does not do this mani full justice):
As a side note, I don't just luck onto these designs =) When I'm bored I'll fill up a cup & start experimenting. & then once I get something cool:
I'll fold up a piece of paper & dip it in to see how the design actually transfers. If I want to experiment with base coats I can paint that on the paper before I dip:
Of course, getting my nails positioned exactly in the right spot is always a challenge, and I think I always end up with a particular nail I like better, that comes closest to my original idea. This time it was my right ring finger, and my left middle. But I also really like my left index & my thumbs, even though the design wasn't centered they turned out really cool.
Odds are I'll be matte-ifying this for a day or so before I take it off, a matte topcoat can really change a holo marble because sometimes there's so much holo going on it's hard to see the pattern, once you matte-ify it you can see more of the detail.
Finally, here is the tutorial =) It had been a few weeks since I put one up, so I thought I might as well. Even though I have other water marbles up, with just a few changes to where you drag there are so many design options.
Thanks for reading ... and for watching =)
