Good morning, readers! As I’m letting my shortie nails grow out this week, I remembered I had a few older manis that I haven’t had a chance to post about yet. So today’s post is a throw back to a few weeks ago, when I finally got a chance to try the OPI ColorPaints Collection for a water marble! They work really well for water marbling, and I used the silver that was included with the collection as the base before dipping my nails into the design. It left a fun, almost colored metallic effect.
- My base is OPI Silver Canvas. This silver foil can be a one-coater as a base for nail art, or two if you are wearing it alone. I chose to do one coat as I knew it would be covered with the watermarble to hide any lighter patches.
- Once it was dry, I painted around my nails with Girly Bits Border Patrol to help with cleanup.
- I used the following OPI ColorPaints in my watermarble: Magenta Muse, Chromatic Orange, Primarily Yellow, Landscape Artist, Turquoise Aesthetic, Indigo Motif, and Purple Perspective.
- Once I pulled my nails out of the water cup, I carefully removed the Border Patrol and used a cleanup brush and acetone to clean up anything left on the skin and cuticles.
- Everything was sealed in with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
What do you think? Have you water marbled with the OPI Color Paints? I’m not sure that you can still find them in stores, but I saw some still on Ulta.com.
*The polishes in this post were sent for me to review with my honest opinion.
