Isadora ~ Marzipan
Mint green crème used in a water marble mani
“Mint green?”, I hear you say out loud. “Mint green isn’t her colour at all!”
And you’re right, it isn’t my colour. I hardly ever wear pastels, but this particular polish has been catching my eye for a while. Every time I saw it in the nail polish rack in the stores I found myself looking at it. I put it back every time though, because it’s a pastel dagnabbit!

In the end I had to give in and just buy the damn polish, and today’s the day I’m going to actually wear it. I am aware that I’m not going to like it on me on its own, so I went for a water marble. Yes, I’m still practicing that technique :D
I started with one coat of Marzipan on all the nails, and it covers well, so one more coat would have done the trick. Instead I made a gradient on my pointer and my pinkie with another Isadora: Crown Jewel, which is a lovely shimmer purple. That’s the same polish I used for the water marble on the other two nails.
Take a look at my final mani:
There’s a layer of iridescent glitter over the whole thing, it’s Jordana’s “Lunar Lights”.
Here’s a picture taken in different lightning so you can see the iridescent glitters better.
And here are the pretty polishes:
What I learned about water marbling today:
- Do test if the polishes spread in the water before you decide which polish you’re going to use as your base colour
- If you’re dunking more than one finger into the water at a time, make sure you dunk them at the exact same time!
- Practice, practice, practice!
