Spring PCFC Day 4: Spring Water Marble

On to day 4 of the Purple Crumpet Fairy Spring Challenge! Spring water marble. I was probably supposed to use pastels, but I'm not really a fan. Plus, I just got in my new Holland polishes. So technically, I did use spring colors, since it's from a spring collection. I started with my right hand, which wasn't very successful. 

At least the thumb looks cool. And I actually like the index finger, even if it is kinda plain. Now for the much nicer right hand.

My pinky was too close to me ring finger and part of the nails didn't get marbled. I kinda tried to hide it in this picture. Here it is strait on.

I did a test marble on a zip lock baggie and the orange kept mixing too much with the yellow and ruined the color. I decided to do a base of Zoya Pippa and then marble over it with OPI A Roll in the Hague, OPI Kiss Me on My Tulips and China Glaze White Cap. It helped with Pippa and A Roll in the Hague mixing and added a pretty shimmer to Pippa :)
