The Neverending Pile Challenge: Blue


Hi everyone!

Today’s prompt for The Neverending Pile Challenge is just blue. I decided to use a couple of Essence polishes from their range update a couple of months ago. essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!I started off with a base of 2 coats of Essence Over the Rainbow to ensure there were no gaps in the water marble. essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!I marbled with Over the Rainbow, along with Happy End, Splash!, and It’s Raining Men!essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!Happy End didn’t come out quite as bright as it is on its own, perhaps because it was layered over the blue, but I still think it did a great job of contrasting with the blues and adding some definition to the water marble. essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!I just love the organic swirls you get from a water marble! It’s beautiful!

As an experiment, I decided to top it with a coat of Essence Holo Jewels in Bejeweled.essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!-topped-with-essence-holo-jewels-bejewelledOf course, it toned down the marble, but I thought this was super pretty too!essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!-topped-with-essence-holo-jewels-bejewelledI do think I preferred the original marble though. essence-over-the-rainbow-water-marble-essence-happy-end-splash!-it's-raining-men!

Do you love water marbles as much as I do?npc-graphicTake a look at some more blue nails at the link:

    I’m not a fan of the toned down look BUT I love the marble. It is so aquatic and pretty

      I liked the plain marble better too, the other part was just an experiment 🙂

  • Jewel-Nails

    Love the blue polish, it looks so spacey!

      Thank you! Glad you liked it 🙂

  • OrdinaryMisfit

    Epic marble. Love the colours you used. I also liked it before the addition even though it is still pretty
