After the reasonable success of my last dry marbing experiment, despite the emotional pain inflicted on my camera, I decided to give it another shot, this time with raaaaaaaiiinbows. I fear that, while very rainbowy, I've made a huuge mistake that kinda ruins it.
First up, I got out my handy sandwich bag and painted a rainbow strip with five different LA Color Art Deco Colors I found at Honest Ed's for $2 each. Once each stripe was done, I took a toothpick and dragged it through all the colours. Awesome, wicked sick, I even made enough for if I messed up one and left it on an angle like last time. Chopping a bit off one end, all ready to stick on my heavy coat of Seche Vite. Here I come to a cross roads. Blue end or red end at the cuticle? Shoulda chosen blue because now it looks like I have the most terrible cuticles. And now my ring finger hurts from trying to get the red off :(
The Verdict: I like the colours and the rainbow, I'm just already super self-conscious about my cuticles, being a recovering cuticle-picker who's under an enormous amount of pressure. Next time, NEVER RED AGAINST THE CUTICLES.
BUT, it looks great! Do you have any issue with your toothpicks making too much of a mark in the polish? I switched to a pin because I only had fat toothpicks that left a trail of bare nail.ReplyDelete
While I understand your issue with your cuticles, these look *awesome* and I'm pinning it. ^_^ReplyDelete
yes, i agree: red was probably not the best choice near the cuticle but oh my god, how gorgeous is that nevertheless xxReplyDelete

So you dry marbled on the sandwhich bag? How did you get the polish onto your nails? -interested-ReplyDelete
Ah, so pretty!ReplyDelete
They still look great, have you tried dry marbling just on your nail?ReplyDelete
