Today I tried a DRY marble using China Glaze White Out and Poinsettia.
I used the technique with parchment paper and let the designs I made dry over night. After they are 100% dry, they will peel right off the parchment! How cool is that?! I also think it is less messy than the water technique. Also, this means you can use GLITTERS!!
This is after they were dried/trimmed and I peeled them off the parchment:
Some of what isn't pictured is my usual prep, and one coat of China Glaze White Out.
I applied the one coat of CG WO AFTER measuring out a piece of a strip so it would be still a lil tacky to bond with the strip. Basically they go on just like the real nail polish strips.
I did one at a time, just to get the hang of it because this was my FIRST time to dry marble.
After a lot of clean up, eh, not too bad!
I didn't take too much time with the design, just did a typical horizontal/vertical line pattern.
Do wait a while to add your top coat because it did drag a bit, I figured that was from the base coats softening it up a bit.
Or it may have just been my fault lol
I did one coat of INM Out the Door then one coat of Seche Vite.
Overall this technique is better. Can't beat pretty-much-already-dried polish!
Til next time...
