Latte Water Marble

Good morning =)  I did my first water marble on myself yesterday!!  I have water marbled friends nails before, but I finally did my own lol.  I also tried a sandwich mani with this marble-- I did gellish foundation, my base color OPI Dulce DeLeche, and marbled with Dulce DeLeche and China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, with Gelish structure gel after that, finishing off with Gelish Top it off.  That is the only way I have been able to get the sandwich mani to work-- with the structure gel.  Without it, everything seems to just stay mushy and you can still ruin it days later... almost as if it doesn't set.  BUT with structure gel, it sets, and is just as hard as if you used Gelish polish in between =)

Left hand-- Please excuse my embarrassing stubby thumb nail... 

Right hand
At first this mani made me think a smokey room or something, but then a fellow pinterester made  me feel better by telling me she thought it looked like the top of a latte or something like that.  I like that SO much better =D

I hope you guys have a fantastic day!!!!
