Hi guys! Today we're going to be working
on this Ornate Holiday Teal and Gold Water Marble.
And, I know these are not exactly the traditional Christmas colors,
but they really reminded me just of the holidays because they're so rich,
and I definitely could see these being used
on like a wrapping paper or other holiday decorations.
So, I decided to do a water marble with them.
This is my third Sephora video,
and so all of these polishes are Formula X
for Sephora. The lighter teal
is called Enigma, the medium kind of darker teal
is called Orbit and
this gold which is actually a duo-chrome
is called Iconic. So, like usual for a water marble
I'm working in a 5 ounce cup of room temperature
filtered water. And I'm just going to
finish off my bullseye with a few more drops of polish.
orange stick I'm going to start off going up to the top,
and then down to the bottom. And
then I'm going to draw in a few basic petals
from one side to the other. And
this particular design I'm going to be dipping two
nails at a time. If you want to have a little bit more control
and be more particular with where you're dipping
you can always go with just one nail at a time. Now that I have
those in there, I'm going to draw some petals
kind of cross-wise at a 90 degree angle. And
that will just and a little bit more intricacy to the pattern
as you can see. Going to
create three kind of channels
about the width of my nails. I have my nails prepped with some tape
around the sides to keep the polish off my skin, as well as a coat of Enigma.
I'm going to turn this just a bit to get a better
angle, and then I'm going to
line my nails up in the cup, and
dip in. You may have noticed I have a pretty serious break on that
index finger, but with all these
holiday designs I'm not quite ready to give my nails a chop,
so it's patched pretty heavily.
I'm going to clean up all this excess polish
in the cup. And
once the surfaces is all clear so nothing sticks on my design
I'm going to slowly pull my nails out.
And there you can see the marble design.
And you can see, from the top
you really can't tell that there's that break at all.
So, if you'd like to check out my patching tutorial,
that's in the Tips and Tricks Playlist, along with the Taping
and Clean Up videos. If you'd like to pick up
any of these colors Formula X is available
in Sephora stores as well as Sephora.com.
