China Glaze Bohemian – Sponge Marble
The China Glaze Bohemian collection is worthy of more than one post. It’s just gorgeous, and as soon as I finished with my last blog update I immediately started thinking about what else I wanted to do. This time I wanted to marble the colors together. The only problem with that idea is that I’m no water marbler. It’s just beyond me to make it work. But I can sponge like a mofo, so that’s what I did. It came out looking marbled so let’s just call it a sponge marble.
I laid down two coats of Swanky Silk for a nice champagny-goldy base. When that was dry I took the other five colors, Want my Bawdy, Unpredictable, No Plain Jane, Deviantly Daring, and Rare and Radiant, dripped little droplets on the tip of a cosmetic wedge and started dabbing.
The wedge wanted to absorb the lacquer, which was annoying to say the least. But by dabbing very lightly and moving quickly I was able to apply the color in a nicely blended mix. If I wanted more of one color I would just add another drip. I worked across all ten fingers and gave it a few minutes to set, then topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite.
