NOTD: Easter Swirl (Holo) Water Marble + Tutorial

That is a freaking mouthful LOL =)  But that's what it is, and I had to throw the (holo) in there because I will have one coming soon in cremes.

For this water marble, I thought pink, blue & purple would work well for Easter, and I picked China Glaze BFF, 2NITE & LOL.  I had kind of a lot of trouble with bubbles on this mani, not sure if it was the polish or the technique ... but overall this turned out pretty much just how I wanted:


My favorite nails from this marble are the right pinky & ring fingers, and the left ring.  The left middle might have been best if I'd managed to center it buuuut ... well, no such thing as a 100%  flawless water marble, at least I haven't managed it yet LOL.

Here's the tutorial:


Thanks for reading & watching =)

  20. I love this tutorial but it didn't work for me. I moved quickly but the nail polish didn't spread out in the water. It stuck to the top and "dried" on the water so I couldn't swirl it. The polish just stuck to my stick when I tried to swirl. What am I doing wrong?
