Better Late Than Never!

I know, I know, it's been a bit since my last post- but I've had nail designs on my mind the whole time! I finally found a moment to do some water marbling and man did I ever take advantage of it!
First up is my St. Patrick's Day manicure. I'm not Irish but I'll be marrying a partially Irish man next Ireland! I didn't feel like going the nail art route with this holiday because, let's face it, my shamrocks suck. So a water marble it was!

I'll admit, I was such a slacker with these pictures. I had already had this manicure for 2 days by the time I thought to take a picture of it...and I was nowhere near my camera! Alas, I leave you with a cell phone picture. It's decent enough but oh well.
As for the polishes used, I can't remember them! I know the gold is China Glaze Champagne Bubbles...and the lime green is an Ulta polish...but the dark slips my mind.

Then, this next one is part of my "I'm on a roll, let's water marble" kick. This one I did the night before I went to a local Bridal Expo. This came out so differently than I expected but I love it!

This one is a cell phone picture too, but it's alright. I used an NYC white for the base color, a deep purple from Ulta that ended up turning blue as you can see above, and a Barielle brand silvery color. Love, love, love this one...just wish it hadn't gotten so many bubbles in it when I dipped my nails. I'll never learn not to rush a manicure.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!
