30 Days of Colour: Picture polish Escapade and Chillax watermarble "Malachite nails"


I was really looking forward for Holo/watermarble day in 30 Days of Colour challenge, because I did not use this technique since December and was excited to try making decals from watermarble. This idea of drying watermarble and cutting it into deals is just super smart (link to video tutorial at the end of my blog) and it makes this awesome type of nail art so much easier. Also for a long time I wanted to use my teal Picture polishes Escapade and Chillax to make malachite nails, and this was a perfect way to do it. Both polishes spread in water really well, they mixed a bit, but it was perfect for the look which I wanted. But of course I was too excited to let it dry and started to pick up marble too early (after couple hours), as a result portion of it got stuck together. However, I put it back into the water and waited overnight, it dried perfectly and I made decals for three nails. I used only two of them, because they looked awesome together. There was one coat of Escapade before I applied decals, just to ensure perfect coverage and two coats on fingers without decals. These nails are dream come true for me!!!
