Water Marbling with a Clear Polish Over Glitter!

If I see someone doing something cool with their nails on the internet, Imma wanna jump on that bangwagon.  Yesterday, it was water marbling over glitter polish to make poinsettia nails - like this. Given it combines my new obsession of water marbling and glitter, I'm on it!  

To start, I applied two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City - my favourite silver foil - followed by two coats of China Glaze Pizazz, a lovely rainbow glitter mix.  I have a bunch of other glitters like this like Sephora by OPI Spark-tacular, OPI Rainbow Collection and Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the Sky-lie but seriously, I cannot get enough of them.  The Sephora polish was one of the ones that started this obsession for me so of course I'm going to buy more.  Anyway, once that was done it was on to the water marble.  This was a little tricky as it was not easy trying to find a clear polish that would spread properly in the water.  I tried multiple base- and top-coats with no luck.  In the end I went with Essie Kisses and Bises as it's one of those nearly clear shimmery polishes that go well over black.  







The Verdict:  I like how this came out but I wish I'd stuck to the one pattern for the water marble.  I was trying to be all experimenty but just came out a bit weird.  I do like the whole water-marbling-with-clear-polish thing though, I'm going to have to try more types.
