L'Oréal 842 Aurore & second attempt at water marbling


L'Oréal - 842 Aurore, 4 coats

Another old sucky L'Oréal LaquiResist polish, I haaaaaate the formula! I had to do four coats to hide VNL, and of course it wouldn't dry and I woke up with sheet marks. Mind you that there was at least six hours between me finishing the mani and going to bed. The colour itself is cute, a pastel baby blue, but the finish is somewhat frosty and the fact that it won't dry... yuck.



L'Oréal - 842 Aurore & water marbling, 4 coats

(Eek, I can't believe how hard it was to get a decent shot of my right hand...) Quick, you have to camouflage the ugly! I used Essie Mod Squad (pink), Misa Honeybunch (white glass fleck) and H&M Hello Kitty brand turquoise. Even though I worked fast, I had trouble with the layer of polish hardening before I could drag a toothpick across it to make the pretty swirls. The water I used was regular, room temperature soft tap water that I had left to sit overnight... I may need to experiment with store-bought filtered water.

I used bottled water and it worked fine for me. Maybe that would help? :)

The marble is so pretty! I switched from tap water to bottled water and it made such a difference! I have no idea why it works, but it made marbling go from pita to so much fun!

So pretty! I'd never be able to get this to work out, I'm too much of a klutz, but this is absolutely gorgeous!
