So, I haven’t posted in a while. The Hubs and I went on vacation, and it had been my intent to postdate a few things, but that didn’t get done, and honestly, I think it is okay. We really needed to just be away from everything for a while. That is exactly what we did. We went into Tennessee, barely had cell reception, and just enjoyed each other. It was great!
Meanwhile, I’m back with a water marble inspired by my 13 year old brother’s recent discovery of Austin Powers. When you have a baby brother 15 years younger than you, you can bank on things like that coming back into your life. 🙂 After seeing all of the crazy colors and patterns, I knew a water marble would be perfect. I intentionally did not go for any certain design. I just wanted colorful and wild!
From left to right, these are all of the polishes that I used: Color Club Blue Heaven (which is a holo, but good luck getting any sunshine these days to be able to see that), China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalast Whipped Topping, L.A. Colors Color Craze Flicker, China Glaze Pool Party, and L.A. Colors Color Craze Nuclear Energy.
I didn’t take any pics of actually doing the marble, but I began with painting two coats of the Whipped Topping on all of my nails to help the colors pop. Then, I taped off a few fingers and painted glue onto the rest. I have always used tape, but wanted to compare. From here on, I will use the glue. You can tell the fingers I used the tape on because you can see some white on the edges where the tape caught the polish instead of my nail. Also, when I water marble, I just use those little two ounce cups (like for sauce for take out food) because I can throw it away.
Of course, there is one nail that catches your eye, and mine was a pinky nail. I love it! (And if you have been on Instagram or Twitter, you’ve already seen it!)
I think these are definitely in the shagadellic category and I have enjoyed wearing the fun colors. I especially like how much variety you get in the color of the polishes, depending on how much they diffuse in the water.
Thanks for reading! Come again!
