Untried Polish Challenge - Number 8 Prettiest

 I wanted to do prettiest, but because I got so many new pretties I couldn't decide. So that meant water marbling again (AKA two hours of regret). I wanted to do marbled tips, where I got it in my head that this was a good idea I will never know. If the polish is good and Zoya thankfully was, it isn't terrible, but it does take a while when you do one nail at a time. Not something I should have started at 11pm :p

Natural light - Shade, Natural light - Sun

I did a 'nude' nail with OPI I Theodera You, which is so lovely that I will have to buy the full size for sure. I did two coats over all but my ring finger. It matches my nail colour, yet gives it a tiny bit of a tan. Then I started the marbling. I always do marbling in a shot glass, I find it makes it easier to control the pattern and it doesn't thin out to much and dry before I finish messing with it. The colours I picked for the marble are Zoya Emme a beautiful pink that would probably have a pearly finish, Zoya Trixie which is a metallic silver polish, and GOSH Nero which is a black I have bought before, but I just got a new bottle so that counts for unused. Right? right?!? 

Okay I admit I just wanted black in the marble. 

The colour on the right side is closer to how it looks in real life.

Anyway, after getting the tips marbled, I put the beads on, it was a bit late so I rushed it a touch, which is why some are a little wonky. I also used my dotting tool to add in a few dots, and then I threw a few stickers on there because my nails looked so naked and there we go finished! All the colours were great for marbling so it makes me think Zoya is also a good marbling brand, if all their polishes are similar in consistency that is.
