Practice Makes Perfect

Well, naturally, not there yet but I am practicing my water marble skills very seriously! 
I truly want to be able to do a real marble shamrock for St. Patrick's day. The real day this time ;-) So today I have one of my practice marbles to show you. No shamrock of course, but I liked it still.

This time I decided to go with the common white as a base so I used two coats of China Glaze White On White. The polishes I used for the marble are Elevation Polish Alphubel and Orly Sapphire Silk.
Despite the fact that it looks like it, I did not dip both my ring and pinky together! Each nail got its own design. My goal was to keep them all on the same side. And my middle nail is the same but different, to be accented. So I'm happy. I think this is the first time when I actually managed to almost  "control" my marble!

Luckily I still have a couple of weeks to practice. Let's see if I can keep up with myself on this one! LOL
