Lilypad Lacquer Watermarble and ellagee Lickety Split Latex Mani Mask

Press Sample buttonGood morning, lacquer lovers! It’s Wednesday and you know what that means? Actually, I have no idea what it means, other than it’s another day closer to the weekend. LOL! πŸ˜› Today I have a water marble I created with a few of the Lilypad Lacquer polishes I picked up from llarowe awhile back. This also gave me a chance to test out Lickety Split Latex Mani Mask from ellagee (press sample).

Liquid latex has been all the rage lately in the nail polish community and ellagee is jumping in the game by repackaging the giant bottle of liquid latex intoΒ a user friendly nail polish bottle, at a minimal cost. You can see in the above photo that I’ve already painted my nails with my base color (Sinful Colors Snow Me White) and Seche Vite top coat (press sample). Then I painted around each nail (on the skin) with Lickety Split. In the above photo, the dark blue is where it has started to dry, the lighter blue is where it is still wet.

After Lickety Split was dry, IΒ started to do my water marble. You can see in the above photo that I didn’t paint far enough down on my finger and consequently that finger was a pain to clean up! But the rest of the fingers? Boy that latex just peeled right off (and there was something oddly satisfying about doing that, let me tell you) and I was left with very minimal cleanup around each nail.

So onto how the water marble turned out! I used Lilypad Lacquer Lime Lifesaver, Orange Lifesaver, Lemon Lifesaver, and I wanted a bit of red so I used Dermelect Power Trip (reviewed previously).

Even in natural light it looked super bright! I absolutely adore how this turned out, and I ended up doing both hands. The Lilypad Lacquers ended up working really great for water marbling, I can’t wait to buy more!

If you do any kind of nail art (splatter, gradients, watermarbles, etc), I think you definitely need Lickety Split Latex Mani Mask from ellagee. Just trust me: it will make your nail art so much easier that you’re not dealing with cleanup!

I’d love to know what your thoughts are about Lickety Split or the water marble, be sure to leave me a comment below. Have a great Wednesday and I’ll see you later! πŸ™‚

  1. I love the combo you use in this watermarble, so bright!
    I’m thinking of getting this, it’s not technically I won’t be breaking my no buy, right? Lol

  2. That color combination is awesome! And so is the design! I can’t get watermarbles to turn out so fantastically. I also can’t wait to try liquid latex. I’ll have to wait for my convenient bottle of Lickety Split since I had it sent to my American address by mistake, but I’m thinking of buying myself a big inconvenient bottle in the mean time πŸ˜›

  3. Your water marble turned out fantastic! I’ve been eying a bottle of the Lickety Split Latex since I feel like having it will make me motivated to do more gradients, water marbles, or splatter designs.

  4. I just got Lickety-Split but haven’t had a chance to use it yet! Does it take awhile to dry? I want to know what to expect when I do end up using it! I knew I’d like it so much I got two bottles when it launched! πŸ˜‰

  5. I’m completely in freaking love with your marble! This liquid latex is godsend, haha. I’ll have to pick up the ellagee version because I’m not 100% in love with the one I’ve been using. Plus the vibrant shade of the latex makes it easier to clean up and notice. The one I have blends a little to my skin color lol.

  6. I love the bright water marble! Its the perfect pick me up I needed today. Lickety split looks like it works great. Im tempted to buy it but I just picked up the super bond hair glue from sally’s that people are using. I need to try that one out first before I get another one. Fun post as always!

  7. What a gorgeous watermarble! It’s very autumnal but still nice and bright!
    I bought those tubs of liquid latex, so I’m not going to be picking up Lickety Split yet. I love the latex, but the application from the tub is a bit of a pain. I transferred some into an empty nail polish bottle after seeing ellagee’s product which definitely helped!

  8. Ohhh, I love that watermarble!! It’s so bright!! I was going to buy the Lickety Split when it first came out but it sold out so fast that I missed it. I picked up wig glue from Sally’s instead and it’s been great, but I like that this is in a polish bottle. Sooo, that’s a good enough excuse for me to buy it (:

  9. There’s that other hand position again, I like it here too! (The last picture) πŸ™‚ I think your watermarble is great, I still haven’t mastered it yet so I love seeing the great things other bloggers do instead so I can enjoy the technique from afar. Haha. You’ve also reminded me I need to get my butt in gear to get some liquid latex. It seems so practical!
