NOTD: Easter Swirl (Creme) Water Marble + Tutorial

I really like the way that this turned out.  Not my actual Easter mani, I wore this NOTD for Wednesday & Thursday.  The colors I used are from Orly's spring Sweet collection, Lemonade & Gumdrop.  The left middle & index were my favorites so I included a few close up shots of those fingers:


For the second day, I wore it matte:


Here is the tutorial =)


I hope everyone has a great Easter!  Now that I'm done posting I have to get my nails done for the actual day, but I'm honestly still not quite sure what I'm going to do LOL!  Something pastel I think, maybe some of the Up & Away colors ... maybe a little bit of design, a little bit of glitter?  We'll see =)

Thanks for reading.

  17. That is really gorgeous! Even though I've mastered Konad, I tried this technique once and it was a major fail, but your tutorial is very helpful, so I might try it again. Yeah, the mattified version reminds me of those easter egg candied chocolates too!

  21. Your water marbles are *always* to die for! Love the swirl-y effect and the colors you chose.

    I have to say that your tutorials for marbling are wonderful. They helped me out tremendously. With a little practice I'll eventually get a passable/postable water mani!
