Happy Emancipation Day Jamaica!

Hello Everyone, While i’m not in Jamaica to celebrate but I find i’m appreciating freedom lately and what it means to be truly free. August 1, 1834 marked a special day for Africans in British colonies it was the day they received freedom from slavery.

So to start out the week long celebration with a Jamaican flag inspired ribbon like watermarble.

In Jamaica, the Emancipation Declaration was read from the steps of the Old Kings House in Spanish Town, St Catherine, the country’s capital at the time.
The bill for the abolition of slavery in the British colonies received the royal assent on August 28,1838. It stated:

Be it enacted, that all and every one of the persons who on the first day of August one thousand eight hundred and thirty four, shall be holden in slavery within such British colony as aforesaid, shall, upon and from and after the said first day of August, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-four, become and be to all intents and purposes free and discharged from all manner of slavery, and shall be absolutely and forever manumitted.
The passage of this bill in the British Parliament in England enabled approximately 311,000 enslaved Africans in Jamaica and hundreds of thousands more across the colonies the freedom for which many of their predecessors had fought and died. However, the Africans did not receive full freedom until four years later, as all slaves over six years old were subjected to a mandatory six-year period of apprenticeship. The ex-slaves would work – without pay – for their former masters for three-quarters of the week (40 hours), in exchange for lodging, food, clothing. medical attendance and grounds on which they could grow their own provisions. They could also, if they chose, hire themselves out for additional wages during the remaining quarter of the week. With this money, an ex-slave could then buy his freedom.

Neon Watermarble

Image

Hello Everyone! Neonitist, it’s my recent sickness, but seriously though I have been wondering about my lack of polish buying enthusiasm. I stopped last month because I started buying neons like they were just invented. 😅

This watermarble is done from the Lou It Yourself, Bright Idea Neon Collection.

IMG_8074

These polishes are very vibrant but they dry a little fast and stops spreading on the water so I could only do so many drops before it wouldn’t spread anymore. When I added the extra drops anyway the colors got muddled. Exhibit A my nails, very few of them turned out like I wanted them to but I liked them anyway.

Polishes used Sally Hansen White On, Lou It Yourself When It Rains It Pours, Avoid it like the Plague & Cat Got Your Tongue?

Happy Easter!

Image

Hello Everyone! Hope you’re having an awesome Easter weekend, I myself had a intensely irritating week add to that skin is doing it’s own thing and no amount of cuticle oil keeps the cuticle on my thumb from painfully splitting. So here’s to hoping for better next week.

Needing something fresh and springy, I decided on this Easter colors abstract watermarble.

St Patrick’s Day Clover

Hello Everyone! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This year I went with something a lot less dramatic than last years mani even though it was definitely more fun.

It started out like this.

284

and I didn’t quite like it for some reason, so it ended up like this.

IMG_7439

For this mani I did base using Zoya Shawn and on top of that I applied OPI’s The Man With The Golden Gun.  For the watermarble I wanted a marble small enough to fit a little over half the nail and not hide the nail color under it. So I filled up most of the outer rings with Pipedream Polish Clearwater and then added the other four drops of polish to form the petals.

IMG_7440

Polishes used Zoya Shawn (Base), Zoya Hunter & Jace (Watermarble), Zoya Goldie, Pipedream Polish Clearwater, OPI The Man With The Golden Gun.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, don’t drink suspicious green beer and don’t go home with Leprechauns but have fun anyway.

Blue Green Abstract Watermarble

Image

Hello Everyone, This mani was done before my little break, I wasn’t sure what about I didn’t quite like, then I realized the color choices I made just weren’t as vibrant as I’d like. Honestly to me it looked a little depressing.

IMG_5797

IMG_5798

Polishes used Sally Hansen Bare Hug (base), Green Thumb, Funky Flare, Dabbler

And of course then this happened, it bent at work and both edges broke, I attempted to patch it but the next day it just ripped off when I was lifting a text book.

As you can see after two and a half months its all grown out.

Purple and Yellow Watermarble

Image

Hello Everyone! Are skulls only for halloween? Umm no, no they’re not. This wavy watermarble started out as an idea that didn’t quite work out because some of the other colors bled too much……you’ll see what I mean.

IMG_5872

On the pointer and middle fingers you can see some bleeding of the purple polish, there are ways to minimize this from happening. Let the polish spread as much as possible when dropped on the water or adding fewer polish drops. And sometimes nothing helps so just rock it anyway

IMG_5874

 

Polishes used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Spots (base), Painted Lady, 3D Crystal Skull PE-29 Sticker bought on Amazon

Candy Corn Watermarble

Image

Hello Everyone, Are you ready for all hallows eve? It’s strange but this is the first year I can honestly say no, it doesn’t even feel like Halloween to me. To enter into the spirit of things I did a candy corn inspired watermarble. Does anyone even enjoy eating candy corn?….For real though I wanna know.

IMG_6063

IMG_6065

Polishes used OPI Alpine Snow (base), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Spots and Sweet Nectar.

IMG_6102

Watermarble pattern, you will notice that the polish didn’t want to spread at the start, so I had to encourage it. Also when forming my bullseye I had to tap the glass a few time when the white or yellow wouldn’t spread. I hope this helps.

Thank you for reading and Happy Halloween!
