Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

Hey Everyone 🙂

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

My nails today where a bit of an experiment, I needed to something to take my mind off something rather upsetting that happened yesterday.

But nails first! I’ll say a little about what happened at the end of this post.

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

I started off with a simple black and white french tip, I used A England Camelot and SinfulColors Snow Me White. Then using a large dotting tool I added the first layer of dots along the line of the french tip, then using a medium sized dotting tool I added the next lot of dots. After they had dried I applied a thick layer of Seche Vite.

For the watermarble I used OPI Color Paints. Magenta Muse, Purple Perspective and Turquoise Aesthetic. Then I finished it off with a coat of Illamasqua Matte Topcoat.

This mani ended up being way better than I was expecting! But you could get the same effect by stamping over a watermarble lol.

My unhappy news (I’m not going to be offended if you want to stop reading now).

I had to have one of my Ratties euthanized yesterday 😦 Wednesday night he lost the ability to stand and started having seizures.

It my vet said that it looked likely that he had a very aggressive brain tumor, and that his symptoms would only get worse.

I know having him pts was the kindest thing to do, but I’m still shocked at how quickly it happened. Up until Wednesday he was one of the biggest, strongest, healthiest, bouncy ratties that lived here with me.

It’s very sad but I know he’s not in pain, and that he’s had the best life that I could provide.

Sleep well Mr. Seth. I’m going to miss you little buddy.


Rainbow Rocket Ships!

Hello! 😀

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

Today I have these Rainbow Rocket Ship nails to show you 🙂

I stamped these over my rainbow watermarble, for that I used OPI Color Paints, ILNP My Private Rainbow.

Here’s the link to the rainbow water marble before I stamped the rockets over the top! 😀

I’m actually kind of sad that I had to take this off so soon. Polish only seems to stick to the patch on my middle finger for around half a day before lifting, to say it’s annoying is a quite an understatement!

I think it might be down to the glue I used this time, Sally’s where out of my favorite brush on glue 😦

but this is the only thing that’s annoying me about it, the split in my nail hasn’t gotten any worse, the little bit of bruising has gone, and it’s not hurting any more! Yay, all I have to do now is wait for it to grow out! 😀


Rainbow Watermarble!

Hallo! 🙂

Today I have this rather fabulous rainbow watermarble to share with you 🙂

Perhaps the planets aligning had something to do with how well this watermarble worked!

Haha not really!

I have finally got my paws on the Color Paints from OPI! and they have the perfect formula for watermarbling! *happy dance*

I had an accident with one of my kitchen draws, which has left me with a nasty split half way down my nail bed on my middle finger, it really hurt and I swore a lot! 😦

The line of tiny bubbles on my middle finger must be from the edge of the glue the on my fiberglass patch repair.

Seeing as this is going to take months to grow out I better invest in a good ridge filling basecoat! So if you have any recommendations please let me know! 😀

I think my favorites from the color paints collection are Magenta Muse, Turquoise Aesthetic and Purple Perspective.

I’m going to have so much fun playing with these polishes! 😀

Born Pretty Nail Art Studs

The studs are made from thin metal, they are really light and slightly flexible while keeping quite a domed profile.

I applied them by pressing them into wet topcoat. You could always use nail glue to apply them if you want them to be a bit more secure.

French Tip

The studs are available here Born Pretty Triangle Nail Stud and you can get 10% off with the code RPG10!

31DC2014 – Day 31 Re-create Your Favourite Challenge

Hello everyone! 🙂

This is my last 31DC2014 post! And how could I not do a celebratory water marble!

Purple Water Marble

Purple Water Marble

For this I used

  • China Glaze – White on White
  • Orly – Liquid Vinyl
  • Sally Hansen – Good To Grape
  • China Glaze – Bizarre Blurple

I have been a bit lazy with choosing the polishes for this and just grabbed the closest few on my desk. 😀

Purple and Black Watermarble Nail Art

Purple and Black

I may have forgotten to use tape on my fingers, so the clean up for this took ages! Ugh, and I’m a little bit annoyed about not getting my little finger nail lined up as well as the others.

I really like this colour combination especially the blue iridescent flash from Bizarre Blurple.

Liquid Vinyl, Bizarre Blurple and Good To Grape

So, there it is the 31DC challenge all done, eventually… It only took me a couple of months longer than it should have… Ooops! 😀


31DC2014 Day 20 Water Marble!

Here are my water marble nails for day 20! 🙂

I decided that I wanted a glittery water marble. but it turned out to be more of a challenge than I thought…

The glitter polish I wanted to use wouldn’t work, it’s too thick and heavy, so after some swearing and spilling nail polishy water over my kitchen, I instead used it as the base colour and made the water marble with a sheer sparkly purple and black, I think it worked quite well!

The polishes I used are

  • Moon Walking – Rimmel
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
  • Purple Diamond – Sinful Colors
  • Seche Vite

Originally I was going to use a clear polish but my bottle has vanished oO

I’m really happy with how my thumb nails turned out! One day I’ll manage to get the same marbleyness on each nail! 🙂

But I suppose I had better take it off and start on tomorrows nails! 🙂
