I thought about doing all kinds of fruits on my nails but there's only so much you can do with that, and I wanted something original. When thinking of fruits I immediately thought of the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes and their names. Each of these polishes has the name of a fruit. I own 3 polishes from the collection and decided to use them all in a manicure. I don't know what got into me because yesterday I actually had the patience to sit down and do a water marble with these polishes. That hasn't happened in a really long time!
I started with a coat of white and then used Barry M Blue Plum, Blueberry and Prickly Pear for the marble. They were perfect for marbling because they spread nicely in the water and didn't mix either, so they created nice crisp lines. The only issue was that Prickly Pear became really sheer and created some very light lilac stripes on the nail. They look almost white in pictures so most people will think I marbled with white which I didn't. I also decided that I'm done with the fear of using up my more expensive polishes for water marbling because I only marble once or twice a year anyway. I have tons of polishes so even if I use a bit more there's no risk of ever running out of them. Plus the fact that you're using a quality polish makes water marbling easy and fun.
I hope that you liked my interpretation of this theme and enjoyed these nails. And if you're in for some really fruity manicures you can check out what the other ladies did:
