Give Green A Chance - Day two: Watermarble Shamrock?

Today the mani I did for my little personal challenge I decided upon - making peace with green - I would like to show you one more experiment in creating Shamrock in a water marble. This is much better then my first try, but still not the shamrock I really want to make. I am truly hoping I can get the right shamrock by the end of the week, just for St. Patrick's Day itself.

For this marble I started with a white base (White Matte by Nabi). Then I did the marble using Orly Acient Jade and Pupa number 729. This is what you see on my middle finger. However, I couldn't get the pupa to spread properly again, so I replaced it with Life number 321 for all the other nails. As you can see I managed to create a nice little shamrock on two nails but I couldn't quite repeat the success. (And yes, I redid the three other nails 3 times...) I guess I still have a lot to learn...
