Baroness X Warm Toned Gem Collection Water Marble- Press sample

Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Today's post, and the next two posts after this one are going to feature the Baroness X Gem Collection. I've split the collection into three groupings to create three different water marbles. Each water marble uses 2-3 toppers with a layer of clear coat in between each shade.

For today's post I chose the three warmest toned shades from the Gem Collection. I liked how they looked side by side, so I thought they would make a great water marble.

This look uses Rubi, Topacio and Citrino to create a space-like marble. It's supposed to have kind of a floating, ethereal appearance.

One thing I learned while marbling with these shimmery top coats is that you MUST use a good cuticle barrier. For this first marble I used a thin coat of liquid latex, but I didn't swipe any underneath the free edge of my nail. Because of this choice, I ended up with shimmer everywhere. It was something akin to my first experience with glitter. I didn't realize how much it could spread, or how long it would stick around. For future water marble attempts with these shimmers I used a generous covering of liquid latex and/or the sticker style cuticle protectors.
