TPC - Round 6: It's Woodstock!

My nails today remind me of the 60s, of tie-dye T-shirts and Woodstock!

I've done a watemarbling - I wasn't feeling all too well and needed a fast achieving and fast drying mani, that would still look gorgeous.
And now you're thinking: 'You wanted that and went with watermabling?!'

Hehe - truth is, believe it or not, I nailed it the first time round and I got quite pleased with how they looked :D

Judge for yourself:





Bam! Bright colours! Sorry for nearly blinding you there!
I must confess I wasn't counting on these colours looking so vivid when I chose them, but now i'm just so glad I did! :D
The sun is shinning outside and these couldn't have been better at celebrating it! *.*
 





I started with one coat of white on all nails, using Purple Professional No.32.
I then alternated drips of Orangerie, Turquoise Shimmer and Pink of Me in the water for a marble that came out better than my wildest dreams!
 Maybe, just maybe, I'm getting better at it ;)
I even have favourites! haha - check them out!



My index finger! Love how the twirl came out, especially because it didn't look like it was gonna be good in the water - a drip of Orangerie didn't go quite in the middle (you can see it in the left corner of the nail ;)) and I got scared! haha!





And my pinky! Love it also! :D
It's like a little paper windmill, don't you think?



So how do you feel about this one? Hope it gives you a great sunny vibe to get through the day with a happy smile on your face :)
Let me know if it did in the comments below!

Oh! And make sure to check the other ladies doing the challenge, they're sure to make you smile too!



Hugs & Kissies,

  3. GORGEOUS! Wow, I will never try water marbling, it sounds so hard to achieve, and there you go and do it fantastically on a day you wanted "something fast achieving"!! Just awesome.

    1. Thank you for your awesome comment! And do try it: I'm starting to learn it's just a matter of practice ;)
      Seriously, and i'm not being modest here, I was just lucky: I tried out a new waterdesign and luckily it worked! :D If you check my previous watermarbles, you'll see they didn't come out as perfect - hehe
