Water Marble Wednesday: "Grab Bag"

 Zoya Kieko, China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, China Glaze Electric Beat, Sephora by OPI Tempted by Teal

Welcome back to Water Marble Wednesday!  Today my partner in crime, Danielle from Polish. Glitter. Rock & Roll!, had the idea to do a grab bag to choose the polishes for marbling.  I thought the idea of having a random selection of polishes sounded really fun... It had the potential to be awesome or a total fail! My biggest problem was that since I have all my polishes on shelves and racks, not in drawers or boxes, it would be difficult for me to truly randomly choose.  So, I came up with the idea to ask some friends for assistance.  I asked several people to look through my stash list and choose one polish for me to use in a marble.  That was all the info I provided them.

These are the polishes that were selected!  Zoya Kieko, China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, China Glaze Electric Beat, and Sephora by OPI Tempted by Teal.  There was one polish that was chosen that I ended up omitting from my marble since it wasn't playing nicely in the water, and that was OPI Dutch Ya Just Love OPI?  The color actually coordinated well with everything else, so I wanted it to work, but it was just drying too fast and being a pain.  (In an interesting turn of events, out of the 7 people who I asked to choose colors for me, 3 of them picked Kieko!  What are the odds?!)
