Purple & Yellow Drag Marble

Hello! I didn't do a specific Easter manicure this year, but this purple and yellow drag marble reminds me of a Cadbury Creme Egg wrapper!

This was a quite simple one to do... I painted on one coat of Orly Charged Up, the purple creme, as my base, and let it dry. Then I applied a second, thick coat of it, and added some blobs of Zoya Darcy, the yellow creme (although it has a veeerryy slight shimmer, I say it's a creme). I used a thin striping brush to gently drag the polish around, swirling it for this marbled look. You have to be careful using opposite colours like this--too much swirling and it just gets muddy brown. I actually had to re-do one nail because I got too drag-happy, but I like the end result a lot.

Seche Vite on top for shine and longevity, as usual :)

I love when I can get a complicated-looking, eye-catching design in 10 minutes! What do you think of this one?

Thanks for reading today--see you next time! xoxo
