Textured Water Marbled Lighting Bolts
February 1st, 2014
In Zoya’s most recent special offer, where they were giving 3 polishes for $12, I more then doubled by textured polish collection. Now I have 5 whole textured polishes! Haha, thats kind of sad considering now that I have finally used one I really love them. Most likely because of the first one that I used and the way I used it.
Lighting bolt water marble yippppeee! I used the ever faithful Bettina Nail Enamel ‘Yellow’ and ‘Epic’ for the marble and Zoya’s ‘Dahlia’ as the accompanying texture. When I saw these lighting bolt Nail Vinyl cutouts I knew right away that I had to do a design like this one and the textured finish on top was just too perfect to represent some stormy skies. I had to use two coats of Dahlia overtop of the marble for full opacity and when taking off the cutouts I still had nice and crisp lighting bolts.
A little messy but here is the sunny sky before the rain came. Bettina’s creams always work great for marbling as seen in one of my other manicures HERE. I contemplated doing a purple and pink marble instead of the yellow and orange combo I settled on but since I like this design so much I might just have to do it again.
Thanx for reading!
