FIRST... I have some new followers and I just want to say Hello and welcome. Thank you for choosing to follow me.
Now for my exciting day.... About a month ago I won Tip Top Nails South Africa Patchwork Contest. Yesterday I received my prize.
Tip Top is not a brand that I can get where I live so I was very happy to get it and very excited to try it out.
What a great polish. I love it and now I am just SAD that I can not get more.
Well because I got some new colors I of course wanted to see what they would look like.
So far I have only used the Pink I stared with plain nails just to see what color it was.
Then I just couldn't decide what I wanted to do with the wonderful color. Why in the world would water marble pop in my head. I have tried this over and over and have failed and failed. I don't really know why..out of 10 fingers I could get 3 maybe to look half way decent and then I get frustrated and give up. Then because it is messy I usually wait a while before trying it again. Last night I guess I was just feeling a little froggy because I pulled out everything to make my mess.
Now because I began with failure in mind I didn't take any during pictures.. How sad is that :( but any way.. I started with a base coat of Confetti Banana Bobanna Cream. It is a nice shimmery yellow. Then on to my little medicine cup filled with water I added the Banana Bobanna Cream and Pot o Berries. with my fingers wrapped in tape I made my design and WAAALAAA !!!
I was just ecstatic that it was working out. Even still I thought "Am I even going to be able to do this on my right hand and have it look any good"
Not to bad Right ?? I am very pleased... and now I just want to do it again.. So the little daughter is going to forced (ya know because I have to make her sit and let me paint her nails.. yeah right) to let me practice a little more.
Products I used: This picture doesn't do the Orly Love Each Other justice. Here is just looks kinda Grey. However is is more of a clear with wonderful micro glitters in it. I don't know that you would call it a Holo exactly... maybe. It is beautiful though and just adds a hint of shine. It is wonderful for a pretty clear on the bottom of a French.
Well I hope you enjoyed this post. I got a little long winded just because I was so excited I was able to pull off the water marble at all.
As always THANKS for reading
