OPI Color Paints Watermarble




I don’t normally start my blog posts by saying my mani is awesome, but today I will say it loudly and proudly. I have had my ups and downs when it comes to watermarbling, so every time that it works out, I rush out to buy a lottery ticket in case my good fortune decides to continue. I have really begun having fun with my OPI Color Paints, and I can’t tell you enough how awesome they are to play around with. In one of the many nail polish groups that I am in on Facebook, someone had posted a watermarble that they had done using the Color Paints with a base of Orly Mirrorball so of course I had to try it immediately. With Mirrorball as my base, holo is life. Let me show you again how gorgeous this polish is on its own.

Orly Mirrorball 3Orly Mirrorball 2Do I really have to say anything else about Orly Mirrorball? Nope. One great thing I have heard is that this polish is now part of the core line so you shouldn’t have trouble getting your hands on it. For once, a polish company didn’t discontinue a polish that everyone loved. Shocker, I know!

OPI Color Paints Watermarble 1OPI Color Paints Watermarble 2For my watermarble colors, I used OPI Color Paints (press samples)  in Landscape Artist, Magenta Muse and Purple Perspective. I am in love with the outcome and will trying different variations of this mani in the future because it’s just so damn gorgeous. It’s so sparkly and gorgeous that it pained me to remove this mani, but I had so much swatching to do that I just couldn’t keep it on for very long. I am not super excited about trying more techniques with my Color Paints! You can see my first attempt here which turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

Well, I hope you like my mani as much as I do. Have you tried the OPI Color Paint before? Let me know what you think of them. I hope that your Monday is going well! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

    Yeah, I’m going to have to try this now. Hopefully the watermarble gods hear my pleas for prettiness and not goop fingers.

    Wow! This mani looks so sophisticated! I must have the Colorpaints in my life – but my bank balance says no 🙁 !

    1. 8 August, 2015 at 10:44 am

      🙁 I know how that goes. There are mini sets available as well that might give you the opportunity to try them out without purchasing the full bottles. I’m no going to lie: they are really fun to work with!

    Wow this is gorgeous!
