31 Day Challenge: Day 21 – Inspired by a Colour

Hey everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. 21st challenge of 31DC – the colour that inspired me was purple. At first I wanted to do something similar to newspaper print but it didn’t work out with the base I chose, so I did marbling instead.

Inspired by a colourThis was my very first time of using marbling tool and it’s a lot better than messing around with a toothpick.

Things I used:

  • China Glaze in Grape Pop (#860) – for the base
  • Maybelline Colorama #112 (nude beige) – for the base of tips, ring finger and thumbnail
  • China Glaze in White on White (#23) – for marbling
  • Maybelline Colorama in Tart (#135 – metallic purple) – for marbling
  • marbling tool

How to: I started with base coat and then the Grape Pop for base colour. When it had dried I free-handed the tips with that nude beige and let it dry. Then I just added few drops of white and metallic purple onto the beige and started mixing them. Didn’t have any pattern in mind, just went with the flow :D. For the last thing – 1 layer of top coat.

Inspired by a colourI’m really pleased how it all came out at the end.
