Recent NOTD and experimenting with the marbling technique

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. 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…
