Recent NOTD and experimenting with the marbling technique

By  | 

Here is my recent NOTD…

Essence - Creamylicious TE - Iced Chai Latte

It’s one coat of Iced Chai Latte from the Creamylicious TE from Essence. Mamy wrote: “Iced Chai Latte is very difficult to apply. It’s streaky and dried too quickly. I can not remember the last time polish caused me so much trouble.” Strange… My bottle was excellent and there is only one coat shown in the picture above. I really didn’t have any application issues with this one. It’s such a lovely nude color. Definitely a winner for me in this collection.

Next day I woke up with my nude colored nails and I knew I had to do something with them. So I decided to get to know the marbling technique a bit better. I tried random polishes and this is what I came up with…


For the base I used one coat of Iced Chai Latte.

The polishes I used for marbling:

  • Up left: S-he – 433 + S-he – 464
  • Up right: S-he – 433 + S-he – 466 + Essence – Creamylicious – Chocolate Shake
  • Down left: the same as up right
  • Down right: S-he – 464 + S-he – 466

And the only successful marble on my right hand…


For this one I used S-he – 221 + S-he – 469.

I have to admit that this was also my recent NOTD, because I left it on for a whole day. :blush: For now I’m satisfied with marbling although I dislike it a bit, because I don’t know how to manipulate the pattern.

Did you ever try the marbling techinque? What do you think of it?

      Plate za konadiranje se dobi preko interneta. Obstaja pa kar nekaj ponudnikov, kjer lahko naročiš. Jaz sem do sedaj naročala TUKAJ in bila vedno zadovoljna. TUKAJ imajo malo drugačne vzorce. V glavnem ponudnikov je res kar veliko…

      Thank you! Yes, it is a beautiful technique but to much time consuming. At least for me…
