The theme for day 21 is Melt or Merge. I decided to do a needle dry marble. I was inspired by this mani HERE. Isn't that gorgeous? Mine didn't turn out as well, this swirl takes a steady hand, which I don't have. Still, I like it...a lot.
I spent a lot of time researching on YouTube how to do this...too much time. I was nervous about doing this technique, for some reason. I finally decided that I had to just had to get over my fear and jump in with all 10 fingers. There was no reason for my trepidation! This was really easy. I wanted use some of the new Zoyas I got during their 3 Free sale, so I chose some of the purples. Here's how I did it.
I started with one coat of Orly Coffee Break as a base. After it was fully dry, I added thick coated lateral stripes of the following (left to right).
