Black And Silver Water Marble

This is my first ever (just about) successful water marble! 😀 It’s taken me ages just to get this technique to actually work! *does happy dance*

It’s far from perfect, there are loads of bubbles and I missed a big bit on my thumb :/ also the clean up was an absolute nightmare! Even with taping up my fingers, the silver polish is lovely but the sparkles are really sticky!

I started off with a base of Pumice from Sally Hansen, I created the water marble in a paper cup with two polishes from Orly, Liquid Vinyl which is a glossy black creme and Dazzle which is the sparkly silver metallic.

I found it worked best when the water was slightly cooler than skin temperature rather than at room temperature, I was in my kitchen and it tends to be a bit cold in there!

I am so happy that I have finally managed to do a water marble! 😀

If In Doubt Add Some Glitter! Purple Stamped Skittle Nails.

Has it really been over a week since my last post? Ooops! I guess I was so wrapped up in Christmas and other stuff that I didn’t even notice!

Anyway I hope your Christmas has been wonderful and filled with shiny things!

Purple Glitter Skittle Nails

For this I started with two coats of Barielle Shades Grape Escape, which is a lovely purple creme followed by two coats of Orly Can’t Be Tamed, Large purple hex and smaller silver hex glitter in a clear base. It’s a really pretty polish but I found that it needed a lot of dabbing to get an even coat of the glitter.

This ended up as a stamped skittle mani because I just couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do!

I used Bundle Monster CYO set, BM-408 for my Thumb, BM-412 on my Middle Finger, BM-411 for the index finger (mutters about the image not being straight) and BM-423 for my ring and pinky fingers! and finished it off with a thick coat of Seche Vite.
