Artful Sunday March Marble Morning

Hello All!

So excited to decide to finally start sharing my thoughts and efforts on my personal obsession of nail polish and nail art. How befitting that my first post is about my first attempt today on marbling.  I have spent several hours over a period of time on my youtubing watching Colette on her channel "My Simple Little Pleasures".  She makes it look so easy! So thank you to her awesome tutorials!

Yesterday I received my latest shipment from Llarowe of Naild'it "Confetti Falls" and "Lego No Way"

The other two polishes are American Apparel's L'Esprit and Jupiter (Glow in the Dark) which I found on the $1 clearance rack! How awesome is that! I'll do some splatter with Jupiter in the future.  I was on the hunt for the perfect lavender for my soon to come Cadbury Easter egg themed creation for Easter Sunday.  Anyway, I was pretty psyched to use Lego No Way like asap and considering it was 1:00am last night, I couldn't go crazy doing art so I painted my base with 2 coats Sinful Colors "Snow Me White" and then 2 coats of Lego No Way.  Of course I just added an accent nail because I just received on Friday my OPI Mariah Carey collection of Liquid Sand so I wanted to try out "The Impossible"

Went to sleep and woke up with a thought that the white looked lonely. So decided to marble it out. Definitely filtered luke warm water helped. So I used the following for my marbles:
-OPI Swimsuit Nailed it
-OPI Strawberry Margarita
-OPI Jade is the New Black
-Sally Hansen Tough Love
-Sinful Colors Snow Me White

It took me definitely 5 attempts to get the right design to come through and clean up was kind of annoying (even with tape and lotion on my cuticles) but I just love how the blue came out!

It's obvious I can never settle on just one uniform look for all the nails - I like variety. I love the geometric shapes of the lego blocks in the Lego No Way.  There are white glitter pieces too but they get lost in the white base. Of course you have to put a coat of Seche Vite to top it off to bring out the shine.

But tell me if you like how it came out! :)
