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.
and I didn’t quite like it for some reason, so it ended up like this.
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.
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.
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
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.
Polishes used OPI Alpine Snow (base), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Spots and Sweet Nectar.
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.
Hello Everyone! Welcome to the dark side MUHAHAHAH!!!
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.
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.
Mini marble design video, after editing it the color looks a little weird.

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.
Hello Everyone, for you folks still partying this weekend, here is a light and cheery manicure. Lets break it down, on pointer and Pinkie Maxfactor Fantasy Fire, on ring finger Dandy Nails Chilled Down (Indie polish).
The marble on the middle finger is NYC French White Tips (base), Orly Liquid Vinyl and Zoya Trixie. Stamped on Bundle Monster BM-H14 with Konad Black and White, I colored over the balloons on pointer with OP Sheer Tints and on ring finger I added extra dots with Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Pearly White.
Polishes used Maxfactor Fantasy Fire, NYC French White Tips, Orly Liquid Vinyl, Zoya Trixie and Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Pearly White
Konad black & white, OPI Sheer Tints.
And since it’s still ok to wish you Happy New year.
“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.
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.)
Polishes used Opi Alpine Snow as base, OPI Christmas Gone Plaid & Zoya Livingston.
So Merry Christmas Everyone! Be merry and go easy on the egg nog 😀
Hello Everyone, Let’s attempt to get me out of my doldrums with a bright, fun and simple watermarble yay!
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.
The polishes used are OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, OPI Gargantuan Green Grapes and Zoya Goldie.
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.
