Blue and Green Watermarble: O is for: Old

I wasn’t sure what to do for old for the A2Z series challenge this week. I quite fancied creating a water marble though, so I picked three of my older untried polishes.

I used L’Oréal French Riviera, a light blue with a barely noticeable hint of shimmer, L’Oréal Blue Reef, a green-leaning dark teal, and Barry M Blueberry Icecream, a mid-blue that I can’t believe I have never used.

They water marbled really well. The Barry M took a few seconds to disperse in the water, and initially I thought it wasn’t going to work, but it came good in the end.

I managed to wipe off a little of the water marble at the cuticles when I cleaned up, so I just painted some more blue over it! It’s a bit slapdash all round, but I created it only half an hour ago and didn’t have much time before I needed to post!

I used Cotton, the new Barry M Gelly, as a base for the water marbled nails and was really pleased as it only need one coat. That makes Cotton a real winner – and my new go-to white base.
