Today is green. I have a fair number of untried greens and in keeping with the push to do some new to me technique I used 2 of my untrieds and did a needle marble. The needle marbling, while not as irritating and hard for me as water marbling, was harder than I thought it would be. It didn't quite turn out like how I wanted, there are a couple of spots that are sort of baldish, but overall I like the effect. If I do this again I will definitely turn off my ceiling fan - I think the airflow contributed to the polishes drying faster than I had wanted.
So, I started with a base of 2 coats of Revlon Posh - a really awesome green. It reminds me of the color of a well-maintained putting green. When that was dry I applied a thick swath of it on one side of my nail and another thick swath of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Limestone on the other then swirled them together using a very small dotting tool.
Check out the final result. Not bad for a first try, I think.
For kicks I'll show you my right hand. I think the marbling came out better on a couple of fingers. Please ignore my mutant broken nails. They make me sad. :(
