Pacific Blue Watermarble with Revlon Stunning

Yay, I'm very happy with this post because I got back to watermarbling! I love this technique when it works right. It is such a stunning look and for me somewhat unpredictable. Even when I've made the design I want on the water and aim for it, I still don't know what it's going to look like until my finger is out of the water. This look was insprired by the first snow of the season! I didn't feel like stamping for the literal snowflake pattern so I just thought I'd go for the overall feel of the snowy winter season.

For this mani, I used Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and Sally Hansen White On. Those X-treme Wear polishes do seem to marble quite nicely. The white did like to spread out a bit more than the blue but I still like the effect. For the glittery snow like effect, I layered one coat of Revlon Stunning over it. It's a mix of smaller glitter with larger holographic hexagons. I think it was a good choice for this mani.

I wore it plain for about a day before putting the glitter on. I just love how blue this blue is! It kind of changes character in different lighting but no matter what, it stands out. I've had so many nice comments on this mani because people just have to take a second look at this color.
