Water Marble Wednesday: Inspired by Fashion!

Hi hi!!  Here is this week's WMW!  I saw a scarf at Target the other day that I just loved the colors of, and I was inspired to use them for a water marble.  I didn't get as much contrast as I wanted between the light blue and the light turquoise though, oh well!  I tried to do a sideways chevron pattern for these, but the pattern was too large and didn't translate onto my nail quite as I had hoped.  I also had some issues with bubbling... I dipped 2 fingers at a time for this, so I wonder if that had to do with it.  It was my first shot at dipping multiple fingers and I may have been a bit overzealous with the speed!

The colors I used were China Glaze Aquadelic, China Glaze Electric Beat, OPI Roadhouse Blues, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime.  These were over 1 coat of Finger Paints Papier Mache.

Don't forget to see what my pal Danielle did today over at Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll!
