Striped Water Marble - Take 3

Hello :)  Hope everyone (in the U.S.) had a great Thanksgiving.  Today I will be showing you another striped water marble using only Julep shades.  I started off with 2 coats of Yumi - a full coverage glitter in a clear base with pink and silver holographic glitter.  On the water, I had 2 drops of each Marisa - a dark cobalt blue with blue shimmer & Rachel - a warm, rich copper shimmer, and in between these 2 shades, I added a drop of clear polish.  Let's take a look at these photos ...

Matte version - Essie Matte About You (holding the bottle of Rachel)
Glossy version (bottle of Yumi)
 (bottle of Marisa)
I didn't exactly achieve Yumi showing through the clear polish portion - just very slightly, maybe I should have used 2 drops of clear polish - should try that next time !!  However, Yumi did show through the whole water marble which made it so SPARKLY !!  I'm still wearing the glossy version while typing this post and just love how it turned out.  What do you think?  Which version do you like better?

Don't miss out on my international giveaway which will end in less than a week !!  Thank you for dropping by.
