Day 20–Water Marbled in Grey and Blue

Even though my first time didn’t quite turn out, this was surprisingly fun! I have been dreading Day 20 for well…19 days! Well, I guess since I’m doing it every other day, I’ve been dreading it for 38 days! I started off with a white base of Sally Hansen XTremewear – White On and marbled with China Glaze – Concrete Catwalk, China Glaze – Kinetic Candy and Barielle – U-Concrete-Me.

I had issues with air bubbles which then popped when I applied topcoat hence the little white dots! I also dipped my pinkie twice because only half of it got water marbled in the first attempt, but that led to polish overload and wrinkling. I’ve learned my lesson of never double-dipping!

I also did not have have the right size container so I had to use a dry measure cup :( I’m sorry 1/2 cup!
