FingerPaints Rainbow Water Marble

I bought some new FingerPaints polishes a couple of months ago from Sally Beauty Supply (the only place you can buy them) & I've wanted to try to do a water marble with them ever since.
left hand FingerPaints Far Out Fuchsia; Tie Dye Tangerine; Yellow Out Man; Peace, Love & Green; Be Hippy; & First Edition 

right hand FingerPaints Far Out Fuchsia; Tie Dye Tangerine; Yellow Out Man; Peace, Love & Green; Be Hippy; & First Edition 
I used a white polish for a base coat & then used FingerPaints Far Out Fuchsia; Tie Dye Tangerine; Yellow Out Man; Peace, Love & Green; Be Hippy; & First Edition & added Seche Vite to top everything off.  All of the polishes except First Edition were from the Tie Dye Revolution collection. I think these polishes worked well for water marbling except Be Hippy (the blue) which didn't want to spread out.  I like how my right hand ended up looking more because I used the polishes in pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple order instead of the opposite way like I did on my left hand & that let the polishes spread more since the blue was next to last.  *These polishes are brighter in person than the pictures make them look.*
I know these aren't the greatest water marble nails, but I do like how they turned out, especially since I've tried water marbling less than 10 times.
My right thumb nail is my favorite:

Simple mani

Quick post to show my mani I'm wearing:
China Glaze What A Pansy & Gaga For Green & ILNP Mega (S)
I used a base coat & applied two coats of China Glaze What A Pansy on my thumb & pinkie nails, three coats of China Glaze Gaga For Green on my index & middle nails & two coats of ILNP Mega (S) on my ring finger nail & topped everything with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat. What A Pansy & Mega (S) both went on like a dream, but Gaga For Green was a bit thin.
I've been a bit obsessed with manis like this for a couple of months now--Mega (S) as an accent nail & then two cream colors for the other nails.  It seems like creams are all I want to wear lately.
Not sure if I've ever worn either China Glaze polish & I really like them both & I love the combo of green & purple together.
What do you think of this mani?  Love/like/hate?  Do you ever fall into wearing one sort of mani or one finish of polish for stretches at a time?
