Polish Days: Something New

My first Polish Days post! Polly Polish created this challenge where basically a group of bloggers set a theme for the month, and choose a day to post it! I missed out on the bling theme for last month, so I made sure to do a manicure in time for January. Here is what I decided to do:

Sunlight

Shade

Water Marble!!! This one is just so spring like! So was my previous manicure. I can't wait for all the Spring collections to start coming out, pastels and cremes are my fav!

I think Water Marbling is the first nail art technique that really made me drool. It also inspired me to get into nail art more. When done right, they are just so gorgeous! This is my second attempt at it, and I must say I am very pleased with the outcome. The first time I tried it was almost a year ago, and it was a little worse than this one. I used too many colors considering it was my first time, and I ultimately destroyed every nail while taking the tape off. I won't even bother with showing you the pictures of it. The only flaws on this manicure really are the air bubbles right in the center of my middle finger, and its a little messed up around the cuticles. Other than that, I love them!

I started out with a base of two coats of OPI- My Boyfriend Scales Walls, I am learning to like this polish.The blue I used was China Glaze- Aquadelic which was from their Electropop collection Spring 2012. The green is Essie- Mojito Madness from their Summer 2012 collection. And the purple is Wet n Wild- On A Trip from their Megalast line. I used Mojito Madness in my first water marble and it really is a great polish to use for marbling, I definitely recommend it!

I can't wait for next months theme!

  6. This came out really nice! My first water marble looked nothing like this (not that I am good at it now...). I also like the colors you chose and I don't think it's too much.
