You all enjoyed last week’s dark and mysterious drip marble so much – and I had so much fun creating it – that I decided to do another drip marble for today! Today, I decided to go with just different shades of green. I wanted to bring across a forest vibe.
I am really loving drip marbles lately! This one may just be my favourite yet – I was so happy with how well all of the greens worked together! I have also been learning a couple of important tricks for drip marbles. It’s obvious that you have to leave the polish to dry for long enough for it to be easy to peel up, but you can’t leave it for too long! I left some for 3 days the other day before getting a chance to put it on my nails, and it didn’t work at all. It became too hard and brittle. It works better when it dries for a few hours to a day.
To get this look, I used Zoya Olivera, Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s, Supermoon Lacquer Polar Light, and Polish ‘M Holly Jolly Christmas and Olive You From My Head Tomatoes!. I liked how all of these different shades of green and olive worked together to get the filtered forest light look I was going for. As with my other drip marbles, I used an old plastic lid, dripped the polish onto it, and then tilted and turned it to let the polish drips flow through one another. I let it dry, then peeled it up and applied pieces to my nails as decals.
I have 2 macros to share today because I just loved this look too much! On this one, I loved the pattern that Olive You From My Head Tomatoes formed! I’ve seen others achieving something similar using effect top coats, but I’m not sure exactly what happened to allow those little cells to form with regular polish. I do know that it looks really cool!
No little cells on this one, but isn’t it magnificent!
I am not tired of these drip marbles yet, so I hope you aren’t either! What colour combination should I try next?
