NotD - Doctor Who Day Six - Time Vortex

I have to start this blog post with a quick 'Yay, I finally manged to water-marble!' There's a weird bump on my pinky, probably a bubble while dunking in the nail, but the top coat evened it out.
Today's NotD was inspired by the Time Vortex and, as I mentioned before, achieved by water marbling. I used Colette's tutorial, which is clear and easy to follow.
Please excuse the semi-cleaned nails, I have horrible lighting and most days I can only see part of the superfluous polish until I take pictures. Today I just don't have time to re-photograph.




This is what I used for today's manicure:

Base and top coats:

  • LOOK by BIPA Stop Split Vitamin Booster
  • LOOK by BIPA Ridge Filler
  • CND Air Dry
  • Essie matte about you

For the marble:

  • essence colour & go 01 absolute pure
  • Eyeko Indigo Polish
  • Eyeko Cosmic Polish - also used as base colour
  • China Glaze Liquid Leather
  • China Glaze Ruby Pumps

After applying the base coats I used one coat of Eyeko Cosmic Polish as base. Every nail got a different combination of colours and a random swirly pattern. Please check out Colette's video for instructions!

The shiny result:


And here is what it looks like with a matte top coat:


Not an exact likeness of the Time Vortex, but that's why I said 'inspired by.' ;-P
