Neon Marble! Poolside collection all swirled up.

Dear Lacqueristas,

Oh boy was it a pain to marble with neons! They dry to quick to properly flood out if you know what I mean. After many many experiments I came up with a lil trick: My first drop in the marbeling water would be some regular cheapo nail polish. After that has properly spread I could add VERY QUICKLY some drops of neon polish and marble.

LOL I made this pic without using my hands, I pressed the button with my chin!

I couldn't pick up the brightness of these neons. Imagine these 1000X brighter.



Right hand, always a challange hence the akward cramped hand position. But I find that this hand came out nicer then my *easier* left hand... What do you think?

By far this was my most difficult marbeling so far. I used the following shades from China Glaze' Poolside collection: Towel Boy Toy, Flip Flop Fantasy, Pool Party, Kiwi Kool-Ada, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and as a base I used China Glaze Snow. I used Seche Vite as a topcoat.

Have you ever marbeled neons? How did it work out? What polishes work best for you? I think cremes are my favs so far.

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

Wow, I'm impressed! every time I try marbling the polishes always dry too fast, so the fact that you got this to work with neons is kind of awesome. Love the result.

that looks incredible . i love the vibrancy of the colours, they compliment one another very well. I'm so impressed. are those your real nails?

Is marbling when you drop the nail polish in the water.liquid thingy? i remember watching youtube videos of those, but wasn't sure what it was called.

That is awesome! I've never tried marbling neons, I might have to try this :]

Laquerista said...

Thanks all, for thos nice encouraging comments. This is indeed the marbeling that you do by dipping ur finger in a bowl of water in wich you've put drops of polish. I'd love to do a tutorial but I am actually pretty busy packing and preparing for our vacation. When I come back I will make a tutorial. Give me a week or 5 ;-)!
