Nail Art January: match your outfit of the day!

Hey y'all! 


Today on the blog I have a watermarble for #nailartjan day 28: match your outfit of the day. I'm happy with how these turned out even though the pink isn't as vibrant as I wanted it to be. Here's what I used: 


Today I started with a new base - Essie protein base. I've been suffering from some peeling so I decided to give this a try. I will update and let y'all know how it goes! I painted my index, pinkie, and thumb with Zoya Dahlia and then top coated those with Seche Vite. I painted my middle and ring finger with Orly White Tips. While that was drying I placed liquid latex from Amazon around my two middle fingers to protect them when I watermarbled. Here's the container I have: 


I just use a q-tip to apply it. Once the latex dried, I used OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazilian and Zoya Willa for the marble. Here's what it looked like before the design: 


And then I drew in the water with a toothpick:


I pulled my finger out of the water slowly, peeled off the latex, and top coated with Seche Vite. Here's a macro of the marbled nail: 


And a final look at the finished mani: 


What do you think of this vampy watermarble?
