Water Marble Monday

Seeing as I’m officially finished teaching AND I’m trying to avoid packing up my whole apartment, I decided to give water marbling another try 🙂

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “Twisted Pink” and a blue from The Face Shop. I think that I’m getting the hang of water marbling because I only had to re-do one nail! So I’m really happy! Here it is:

I love how each nail is unique and unpredictable. My favourite is the thumb. What do you think?

Day 8 – Starry Night

Here is yesterday’s post 🙂 I really liked this topic and I like how it turned out.

Because it was glitter, I used a Modi Peel Off Base Coat which makes it really easy to remove. It peels off so easily! It really beats trying to remove it with nail polish remover. My friend, Nailart for Funn did a Modi Peel Off Base Coat review, you can read it here.

After the base coat, I used a Skin Food purple undercoat, followed by a Modi glitter polish (in the picture). I love this Modi polish because it has purple, blue and gold/bronze glitter in it. It’s a really interesting combination! Then I used a nail art brush and Sally Hansen “White On” to paint a star shape. In the middle of the white star I stuck a star-shaped nail art jewel.

So, here’s the mani. What do you think?

The Lumineers :)

So maybe this is taking it a step too far, but I based this mani on a music video. Has anyone ever done that?

This is inspired by a song called “Hey Ho” by the Lumineers. Loving it at the moment! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4

In the music video all the colours are muted and brown, until the end where there is multi-coloured confetti released on a crowd. There are also fairy lights all over, very pretty (this inspired my ring finger nail). What do you think?
I hope you like my mani 🙂
