Live Love Polish: UNT Sand Castle Swatch Watermarble Nail Art

press sample
Hello! I have a beautiful glitter shade by a new to me brand, UNT, based in Asia. At this time Live Love Polish is the only stockist in the U.S. to carry UNT, and yes, they ship internationally! I have this watermarbled glitter goodness on my nails right now and believe me I don't want to take it off!

 UNT Sand Castle is a delicate mix of different size pink hex glitter, small white glitter and silver micro glitters.


First, I'd like to mention how much I like these bottles. Unique and elegant. The brush is of the wider variety and the polish applied easily.
 I have on three coats here and you can see that it is either a texture polish or it dries down super gritty. It's perfectly wearable without top coat, but with, it's stunning.

 I decided to turn this shade into a quick and pretty water marble. I love how this looks with the glitter showing through. It's easy to do, simply water marble with a clear (non quick dry) top coat and white. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and OPI Top Coat.

 Just wanted to give you a behind the scenes look! I used OPI Glitter Off painted around the nail for easy post water marble clean up. So here's a look how it looked after water marble, and the Index mostly cleaned up.
 The above photo shows you how easily the polish mess just peels off with the Glitter Off underneath! Cool, right?

UNT Sand Castle is available at livelovepolish.com for $8.00

All the best, 
Victoria

  1. Sand Castle is stunning, and totally looks like actual sand. It's totally not my style (texture, that colour, we don't get along), but I love it anyway. I've got to try water marbling one of these days, seriously.

  5. Love this! Great way to use the glitter with marbling. I always wondered about clean-up - Glitter Off! Excellent and I HAVE IT!! Maybe after the holidays I'll get brave and try one!

  6. This is gorgeous! I really like the clear/white water-marble effect over a glitter base. It's interesting seeing your 'behind the scenes' shots also.

  8. This is such a beautiful effect! It feels very wintery to me - I would have never thought to pair a textured polish like Sand Castle with a water marble!

  12. Stunning... the colour reminds me enough of Teenage Dream that it immediately makes me fall in love. The water-marble is also awesome!

  13. Beautiful marble! It's good to know that OPI Top Coat works well for this technique...my fast dry top coats have always been a nightmare to marble with!
