Subtle Marble


I realized that it's been a while since I've done a water marble. Water marbling is one of my favorite techniques, so I obviously had to remedy this!

I wasn't really sure what I was going for with this water marble, except that I wanted to use OPI Just Spotted the Lizard. I recently received this polish as a gift from my lovely friend, Mithril and I've been having a difficult time deciding what to do with it. So, going off of that, I gathered up some other polishes with a similar effect and got to work.


I started off with a black base using Wet n Wild Ebony Hates Chris. The colors I used for the marble were OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, Sinful Colors Show Me the Way, and Wet n Wild Grey's Anatomy. The result was a subtle, dark marble reminiscent of scarab beetles and oil slicks. Beautiful, in my opinion!
