Funky Water Marble

I wanted to do a water marble, but didn't want to end up with anything too sweet or lame. I had something like 70's wallpaper style colour combo in my mind when I started, and this is how it turned out:
Not bad, and quite seventies, huh? Ok, so there are bubbles and other mistakes, and my cleanup isn't perfect, but with dim lights and the right music.... (Soundtrack fot this definitely includes Stayin' Alive and some selected funk classics.)
The base here is two coats of China Glaze White on White, and the marble was done with China Glaze WoW, For Audrey and Happy Go Lucky, plus OPI A-Taupe the Space Needle
A hint: if you don't want to get green on your nails, don't put blue and yellow side by side when you marble... At least with these polishes...
My right hand turned out better, as always. I believe it's because of the dip - which actually has a big influence on the pattern - is much easier to do with the dominant hand.
And here are the polishes:
