I thought I’d try my hand at water marbling. It is harder than the tutorials let on and I think I used the wrong polish. I was trying to go for chocolate swirled on pancakes and ended up with overly brown nails. Still kind of interesting, and something I want to try again with better polish.
I’ve fallen a bit in love with Silver Linings Playbook. These were supposed to have small glitter tips (silver linings) but as it turned out, the glitter stuck to the whole nail. I hadn’t used my glitter pots yet so lesson learned! My ring finger has tin foil on it. Lessons learned from that? Cut the foil as small as possible. It will never be 100% smooth, but it makes for an interesting effect!
And happy birthday to Linz, who bought me the glitters and many many other nail things featured this year.
Sadly I only have one not-so-great photo of this week’s mani. I decided to test out some beads, which were a lot of fun. The polish I used on my other nails was from a gift set, and didn’t stand up against chipping. Going to use it for layered manis I think. The pinks and purples were for valentines <3
This is impossible to answer, there are way too many amazing ones. 2013 was an amazing year!
Yes is no. No is yes.
I’m going to cheat and say my existence.
To fill people up with triangles.
These were done with a layer of white, a few layers of Models Own Jack Frost, striping tape with a layer of one of the older Barry M glitters. They’re really subtle in person which I quite like. I chose snowflakes because it usually snows around now (hasn’t yet, thank goodness!) I wanted something super sparkly, and there we have it!
It’s 4:30am and I’m awake. All because of a dream.
