NOTD: French Tip Swirl Drag Marble

I know my water marbling reputation is, well .., kind of awesome =)  But even I fail sometimes, and I failed a lot in my latest experiments.  I failed enough that it didn't make it onto my nails & I ended up doing this instead at like midnight - base color is Sinful What's Your Name, drag marbling done with China Glaze Virtual Violet & Techno Teal:

Here's the tutorial - kind of surprised it turned out coherent as tired as I was LOL:

I haven't give up permanently - I will probably continue experiments this weekend.  It's been like 2 weeks since I had a marble & this Addicted to Color will not get the best of me!  Thanks for reading.

  11. LOVE it...I def need to try this technique! I have done one or two succesful water marbles, but I am such a perfectionist and it is hard to be that when your first learning how to do water marble...but this looks doable! Thanks for inspiring me!
