Good 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! 😛 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 into 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, I 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! 🙂
