Vintage Water Marble

I didn't really know what to call this post, but the colors remind me of the 70's! I actually did this water marbling the other day just to practice so I only did it on one hand. Wasn't very crazy about my color choice, but I didn't want to use too many colors because last time I did that it looked super psychedelic and I hated it lol. I started off with a white base and then marbled using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow, Sun Kissed, and Green With Envy. I LOVE these polishes to marble with because their formula is so watery and the polish drips very easily. I got mine at Target for like $2.04/each. My middle finger looks all messed up because I started to make my bullseye and realized I forgot to tape my finger, so I grabbed my lip balm and put it around my nail instead of tape (I heard some people use it instead of tape). I think I must have marbled on top of a glob of lip balm because when I put my topcoat part of my marble came right off =[ I will be sticking to tape from now on!
