From the Archives: Color Club OPI Water Marble

December 12:

I have pictures of today's manicure but I thought it would be fun to post this manicure first.
I did this for the last day of finals as a fun kick off to winter break. The manicure started out as two coats of Color Club's "Fashion Addict", but I got a bit bored (I blame finals not the could a holo get boring?) and added some marbling. Basically an hour spent dipping my nails in water was better than spending it studying.

Color Club's "Fashion Addict" is such a pretty color purple. I love how it looks against my skin, actually the polish I have on now is the same shade of purple. It was easy to apply and took little effort to clean up.

When I went to marble it I used OPI's "Funky Dunkey" as the complimenting color. This color is so gorgeous! I bought it about two months ago and I've used it a lot with other polishes, though never on its own. I like to think of it as a bright electric purple, and I think "Ogre the Top Blue" is the blue counterpart to FD.

My sister had stamped Fashion Addict over Funky Dunkey a little while back so I took my inspiration from that. I dropped FD, then FA, then FD, then FA then FD, and lastly FA. Since I already had FA on my nails it provided enough base for the marbled FA to show up. It was still holographic after marbling!

I would do this manicure again in a heartbeat...though I also want to try it out with Color Club's "Revvvolution". Holo water marbling is so much fun!

Up next I will have for you pictures of my current manicure, Essie's "St. Lucia Lilac". I love this color so much on my nails that I have had it on since Thursday...that is four days, quite a stretch for me.

Until next time,
Happy Painting!
