China Glaze Electric Nights Rainbow Lightning Watermarble [Nail Art]
Howdy nail people! I've done another rainbow watermarble with lightning NailVinyls accents! Hope you don't mind the repetition! (If you missed the neon Indigo Bananas watermarble manicure it is here.)
This time, I decided to play with six of the China Glaze Electric Nights neon polishes that were released for Summer 2015. (I also have two of the neon glitter mixes from the collection, but they weren't used in this manicure.) I know these polishes are a little bit old news by now, but I am just now getting to them, and I think they are lovely! This is also the same watermarble that I posted to IG as a sneak peek here.
L to R: Home Sweet House Music, Red-y to Rave, Glow with the Flow, Plur-ple, DJ Blue My Mind, Treble Maker
I wore Red-y to Rave on my toes for a while and I was super in love with it!
I was really happy with this watermarble!
You can see, though, that the corners of the lightning bolt vinyls aren't super crisp. I think that's probably my peeling-off technique.
Behind the scenes shot!
I used the "chevron" pattern again since I'm most comfortable with it, but this time I kept the drags as close together as possible so I'd end up with many narrow lines. You can see that these polishes really marble very well! In the photo above, DJ Blue My Mind and Treble Maker are alternated. I did each nail over a white base, by the way.

^That one had a bit of a smudge, oops!
Yeah, overall I loved this manicure, and it was super fun to make as well! Watermarbling is so satisfying when it goes according to plan!
