NOTD: Purple Fanatic Water Marble + Tutorial

I am super in love with this marble.  I don't usually use this many colors all at once because it's a challenge to find so many that work together, but I was patient & eventually found 5 shades that played nice together:
 
 
I used Milani Cloud 9, Zoya Zara, OPI Purple With a Purpose, China Glaze Coconut Kiss & China Glaze Let's Groove:
 

Here are my favorite nails, left thumb, left middle (which is my favorite overall, perfectly how I wanted the design on there), right thumb & right index (which I actually like because it's so different from the other nails):
 
 
Of course here is the tutorial - big number 100!  Wow, I never thought I would have this many vids =)
 
 
I'd like to make this a series, doing some other marbles with several different shades of the same color.  I've got some Valentine's ideas to get through, so not exactly sure when I'll get back to revisit the idea, but I'm kind of looking forward to doing 5 shades of blue, red - all the colors really.
 
Thanks for reading.

  21. Awesome colors and design! Congrats with 100th video. I have a little request about more videos with drag marbling - the process of using so much scotch tape in water marbling makes me so exhausted:)

  28. I've watched many of your videos (love love love them!), and this is definitely one of my favorites!!! I'm looking forward to seeing some other colors, too. You are such an inspiration, maybe I'll have to follow your lead and try to come up with a 5-green marble for St. Patrick's day next month!
