Neon Water Marble with China Glaze Poolside Collection

 China Glaze Pool Party, Sun Worshiper, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Kiwi Cool-ada, Towel Boy Toy
(Indoors with flash)

Hello everyone!  Here is a summer-y mani I did a few weeks ago.  After I did my first successful water marble with the China Glaze Electropop colors I knew I wanted to do another one with neon colors.  I used 5 out of 6 colors from the China Glaze Poolside collection, which were Pool Party, Sun Worshiper, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Kiwi Cool-ada, and Towel Boy Toy.  My base was 2 coats of OPI Funny Bunny

 Natural light

Lightbox with Ott-Lite bulbs

What are your favorite neon polishes?

  4. Oh man this is sick! I didn't think neons worked for marbling! I'd always wanted to see them, but never thought they'd work. You killed it though! (Poolside's my favorite set of neons as well.)

    1. To be honest they were a bit difficult to work with! They didn't really drag together very well, it kind of made little empty spaces where I pulled the toothpick through. I did get some distilled water though, and that has made all my water marbling MUCH easier, so I highly recommend it!
