china glaze kicks water marble

Today we had a storm, and my university wasn't closed, so I decided to have a personal snow day. Hah!

I used my time wisely - I water marbled!

These are so much brighter in person than the pictures show! I took a million pictures to try and capture it but I couldn't.

Check out the middle finger!!

Love the thumb.

Tried to show more brightness without the flash, but it didn't really work.
How about a webcam picture?


I think this sort of shows the fluorescence!

I am really loving this marble. This one will stay on for a few days!

Here are the polishes I used:


Picture those colors in the marble. That's how bright it is!
These 3 polishes are from the China Glaze Kicks collection, as I mentioned in the title.
This collection was for summer 2009, and I wish I could find the rest of the polishes. I need Custom Kicks especially!
They marbled wonderfully, and of course, I painted my nails white before dipping.

Now that you've seen the nails, check out the mess water marbling creates!


Paper towels, tape, flyers, a ton of polishes to find the right combo, remover, acetone, qtips, tooth picks, yikes!
