NotD - China Glaze Khrome Marble

Last night was a water marbling evening again. I had been thinking about trying to marble with the lovely metallics from China Glaze's Khrome Collection and expected that those would either work perfectly or not at all. Turns out that they really are gorgeous and great to marble with.
Flaws are of course my mistakes. ;-)

 I started with a black base, just in case the marble wouldn't be fully opaque. Using a chrome would have been sneakier, you can see the flaws very well with Blackest Black as base.

  • OPI Nail Envy
  • Revlon 999 Blackest Black
  • Seche Vite - not part of the base, but for topping the marble.

The marbling colours:
  • China Glaze Millennium
  • China Glaze 2030
  • China Glaze Sci-Fi
  • China Glaze Metallic Muse

Today's photos are pretty good for telling you about the issues that arise when water marbling.
You an see some marks from water droplets on the my index finger and ring finger. This appears to happen more often when the polish film gets a bit gloopy.
The pinkie is quite normal. the application on the middle finger is perfect, the marble effect is not clear enough, though.

Overall, I really like the Khrome polishes for marbling. Their opacity is amazing, they get less gloopy than most polishes and spread out very nicely. Remember to always check if the polish has formed a skin before dipping in your finger. If it has, remove it and start over. :-P

Which Khrome is your favourite?
