Pink and Flakie Water Marble (Pic Heavy)

I've been seeing some gorgeous water marbles popping up around the blogosphere and it made me want to give it a go again.

I used my Zoya Areej as my base colour and then used China Glaze Something Sweet, Zoya Areej, Zoya Kieko and Zoya Chloe for the water marble. I wasn't sure if a flakie would work for a water marble since I hadn't seen a water marble that used one so I decided to give it a go and it worked!

These are the photos of how my water marble turned out.

First my left hand, please ignore the polish I chipped off on my middle finger *oops*:

My favourite thing about water marbles is that every nail comes out different! This is my favourite water marble I've done so far :) I really love this one and like the random bits of flakie goodness sparkling out.
