China Glaze On Safari and Darling Diva Polish Water Marble

Hi Everyone!

Today I have another water marble for you.  This time, the marbling itself turned out a lot better, however the mani as a whole still didn't turn out as I wanted.  I started out with a white base of China Glaze White on White, then used Exotic Encounter, Purr-fect Plum, and Jungle Queen from the China Glaze On Safari Collection and Space Beetle from indie brand Darling Diva Polish.  The On Safari polishes are all deep fall-esqe colors and Space Beetle is a charcoal duochrome holo.

L to R: Purr-fect Plum, Jungle Queen, Exotic Encounters, Space Beetle

I thought being from the same collection these colors would work well together, but after marbling the colors we a little off.  Jungle Queen looked especially different as the grey tones in it took over after being marbled. I seem to have a common theme of accidentally making my water marbles look like candy canes; last time the pink, purple, and white ended up looking like a peppermint candy cane, and THIS time my boyfriend said the colors looked like the mint chocolate candy canes.

Another friend said they looked retro, which is a little better but still not what I was going for.  Sigh.  Still, It wasn't as bad as as last time, and I still really like the idea of using one shimmer color in the marble, maybe just one with a darker pigmented base next time.  So here you go!
