31 Day Challenge: Day 20 Water Marble

Sweet, sweet lord.. I am going to issue the world's most apologetic apology EVER.

I. Hate. Water. Marbling.

I suck at it. It does not matter how many tutorials I watch, I never seem to learn. I think I get worse at it every time I attempt it.

AND, I tried to do it with sparkly polishes, as I thought it would look super bad-assed, and no.. It doesn't.

I am already envisioning losing 10 followers tomorrow (please don't leave me - I swear I will do better!)

And.. I love you all? /endapology

View the photos, if you must/if you dare.




I used Essie Show Me The Ring (not shown in the photo) as a base, then I used Quirius The Arabian Nights, Diamond Cosmetics Blue Diamonds and Diamond Cosmetics Amethyst & Diamonds.

I honestly have nothing else to say about this disaster.

Please cue day 21.. PLEASE!

I just want to say thank you for posting this. It's so nice to see manicures that aren't perfect or that failed for some reason. There are so many pictures of pure perfection out there, so let posts like these remind us that we are *real* people and real people aren't perfect all the time. :)

I feel your pain, sis... I tried about 4 times this weekend, all from the scratch. I discovered that sparkle polishes end up in a clumpy mess. For me essie polishes worked the best, once you see that the polishes spread easily in water & won't lift when you touch them with a toothpick, it won't fail. Chin up, noone will leave your blog! <3

@Rainbowify Me - I do appreciate that. I said I would try to never hold stuff back from this blog.. And if what I end up doing sucks, well, then it sucks! It needs to seem real. Thank you!

@Trincess - Essie.. Noted! Thanks doll - and I didn't end up losing anyone.. Sanity kept intact!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!
