Water Marble Wednesday: Neon

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I really have a good one for you! I have never tried a neon water marble before and I always thought the neon polishes might come out too sheer, but I finally decided to give it a go and I am SO glad I did. Painted Fingertips | Neon water marbleI used six neon polishes from Tip Top for my marble and I was blown away. They marbled SO well. I think these might have been the best marbling polishes I have ever tried – they played perfectly together, all spread across the water well, and went exactly where I wanted them to when I marbled them. They were so amazing that I’m sure you’ll be seeing quite a few more neon marbles in the coming months! Painted Fingertips | Neon water marbleA white base might have made them pop even more, but I decided to use the neon yellow, Tip Top Walking on Sunshine, as my base. I then marbled with that along with Tip Top Salsa Pop, Get the Party Started, As the Beat Grows On, Cyan Can-Can, and Grape To Meet You.

    Wow this is just too cool, what a lovely surprise for you to find these tip top neons water marble so well. What a shame they’re not making tip top anymore:(

      Thanks! Yes I am very sad about that since my neon yellow is already half done! There are a few others I also wish I could get backups of and of course a few that I don’t have yet!

        Love them! Ive only just managed to get my water marble to work, 18 months of trying and i finally Nailed It (shameful pun!)

        • http://paintedfingertips.wordpress.com paintedfingertips

          Well good for you for persisting, the more you practice the better it’ll work 🙂

            I can do the marbling, the difficult thing was finding a polish that worked, a lot of the polishes ive tried dont spread but i found an awesome brand that worked and i did rainbows, i loved them!

          • http://paintedfingertips.wordpress.com paintedfingertips

            Oh sure, but finding polishes that work is part of the ‘practice’! 🙂

          • http://flowbeth.wordpress.com KaboodleMum

            I couldnt agree more, its a pretty special moment when the polish jut glides across the water though, so rewarding!

    These colors worked out great for a water marble. I love the design you created too. When ever I water marble it always ends up looking very busy with the lines really close together.

    • http://paintedfingertips.wordpress.com paintedfingertips

      Thank you! Personally I like busy marbles but it sounds like you are just adding too many polish rings to the water, or maybe over-marbling/moving the polish around too much 🙂
