Purple Royalty Watermarble

Hello Everyone! Purple is the color of royalty or do they say. I needed a fast watermarble so used a container that I could easily dip five fingers in and not get a mess.

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.

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.

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

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!

The Darkling Watermarble

Image

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the dark side MUHAHAHAH!!!

IMG_2127

Bring you another darkly luscious water marble, I’ve had this idea rattling around in my head for a while. I don’t want to tell you all the different polishes I tired so it didn’t become one big blob, or the variation of dropping polishes so the white came out looking white.

IMG_2128

Polishes used ended up being all OPI, Alpine Snow (base), I Knead Sour-Dough, Keeping Suzie At Bay, Christmas Gone Plaid & Louvre Me Louvre Me Not.

IMG_2104

Mini marble design video, after editing it the color looks a little weird.

How the water marble looks in direct sunlight.

IMG_2148

It didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted it to, what I wanted was one vein of white running through all the other colors, but the polishes were not willing to co-operate. In the end I loved it anyway, that’s the fun of marbling there is not one way of achieving the same thing.

Peppermint Swirl Watermarble

Hello Everyone, Merry Christmas!

“So leave a peppermint stick for old Saint Nick hanging from the christmas tree.” I’m not ready for Christmas but it’s here anyway so why not do something sweet.

IMG_0989

These are just your standard swirl watermarble, but bad choice of polish there was bleeding/blending of the red color with the white so it’s not as crisp, so maybe pick a different red. Think wet candy cane (that’s probably a bit accurate it’s been raining for 4 days.)

IMG_0992

Polishes used Opi Alpine Snow as base, OPI Christmas Gone Plaid & Zoya Livingston.

IMG_1006

So Merry Christmas Everyone! Be merry and go easy on the egg nog 😀

Golden Stripes Watermarble

Hello Everyone, Let’s attempt to get me out of my doldrums with a bright, fun and simple watermarble yay!

IMG_9647

I wasn’t expecting it to turn out exactly like this, because the green polish didn’t want to co-operate, it didn’t spread as much as i’d like. But I like how it turned out.

This watermarble pattern is one of the easiest to achieve.

IMG_9663

The polishes used are OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, OPI Gargantuan Green Grapes and Zoya Goldie.

IMG_9666

These photos look a little yellow/orange because they were taken in the very early morning. I’m what I lovingly call a guerrilla iPhone photographer, meaning most of my photos are taken in whatever good lighting I find, but mostly natural light. I know I look weird to people when taking pics outside, and I do have a light box but I actually hate using it. For one the lights are super hot, for the other I don’t have a dedicated spot, so I have to fit it up and take it down, I ain’t got no time for that.
