Hey y’all! For today’s But Do They Watermarble I’m featuring the Metallic Holo portion of the Urban grunge collection, available now! These were sent to me for review and i have a full swatch, stamp, and review available here. As always I’m using my tiny teacup full of room temperature filtered water and I will drop in the order that I swatched them, then in reverse, and then finally a final look. This is how they preformed:

Before dipping my nails into the final design I prepped with a coat of Willa (black cream) and Easy Peel around my cuticle area. I then dipped, did cleanup, and topcoat with liquid marvel from Superchic Lacquer! Here are my final results:

All in all I would not recommend marbling the entire collection together. I feel like the Metallics marble well on their own and the Holos marble well on their own but kind of stalled out when combined. These do dry incredibly quickly so you will want to work fast!

Do you have any recommendations for other collections to marble? I would love to hear your thoughts below!

  1. I agree that these don’t seem to be the best to marble with. The final pattern looks nice on the water but then it gets lost once on the nail since it really isn’t opaque enough.
