Digit-al Dozen: Colour Contrasts College Colors (sort of)

Greetings and Nailutations,

Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen does Colour Contrasts and I decided to go with my college colors from a few (*cough* maybe 10...ok ok 15 years ago).  It seems like college colors are all contrasting colors - I wonder if that was planned?  I decided to pair purple and yellow, but used pastels!

Now let's get to the mani! a plan doesn't always turn out the way you see it inside your head.  I wanted to water marble, then I had a few bubbles and I got frustrated and stamped over it.  (The best way to hide mistakes I have found!)

Products used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint: Don't Be Jelly, Bounce Around (press samples), Yoga Pants
What's Up Nails: Water Marble Tool
Dream Polish: Gem Glam Top Coat, Gem Block Liquid Latex (press samples)
China Glaze: White on White
Cici&Sisi: 04 plate
Clear Jelly Stamper: stamper, clean up brush

Here is the original water marble.  I started with a white base of China Glaze's White on White and added Gem Glam Top Coat.  I water marbled with Don't Be Jelly and Bounce Around and used the What's Up Nails water marble tool.

Since I wasn't pleased with my little bubbles, I added a stamp!

Be sure to check out the other fun contrasting manis below from other members of the Digit-al Dozen.  :)

Happy Polishing,

  1. This mani is so fun and lively! I'm. But you're right, all college colors seem to have contrasting colors!

  2. Love the colors, lovely stamping over pretty water marble.

  3. Oh wow, that watermarble is amazing! Love the stamping over it as well. Great combo!

  4. Sucks about the bubbles, but the addition of the stamp adds that little something extra. Love it!

  5. This is lovely! I really need to try combining a marble with stamping!

  6. You've kicked butt this week! This is a super cute mani - I love the marble!
