You've seen my Blue-Eyed Girl seriotype, and my swatches...are you ready for my marble? Well...I'm not either. But here it is anyway! I even made a video to demonstrate with my shiny new camera!

China Glaze White on White
(as a base for the ring and pinky)
I am not a marble-master. Let us put that right out there before we start. I am slightly below the average human when it comes to this particular skill. I have never really been able to master that flawless flower that so many people lust after...I just don't have that sort of talent. The way I figure it, if I can make these work, then anyone really can.
They spread pretty easily, as you can see from the video I linked below. I think my water was a little on the chilly side (room temperature means something else here) so I feel like that slowed things down a little bit. But they didn't dry too quickly and I was able to do a passable swirly thing. On my index and middle, I used only the clear base that I normally wear (currently Powder Perfect). I wanted to see how opaque these really are...and holysmokes. You almost don't need a base for these. I did the traditional white base for the other two nails, and of course that looks better. But I kinda don't hate the sheer look...
And as promised, my video! It is pretty short, less than two minutes, so give it a look at tell me what you think!
