Marble Veins

Good Morning Nail World.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! It felt like a Thursday all week so I’m finally glad it’s actually Thursday! I tried to a new technique on the blog today. I attempted marble veins.

What I Used:
Base: Zoya Aspen
Veins: Cosmetic Arts light Grey polish & Wet’N’Wild Black Creme

After my base dried I squiggled on the grey polish using the thinnest brush I have. I used a slightly larger brush to put acetone on the grey veins to dilute them. I did the same for the black lines but I didn’t dilute it quite as much.

My inspiration is the piece of marble we have in our shower. (We have a built-in recessed shelf in our shower for our shampoo bottles. The edges are all marble). My veins are quite strong compared to my inspiration, but I still love the outcome.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Birthday MOM!

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a super busy one. The BF & I went to Grand Bend at a friends cottage and we celebrated Moms birthday on Sunday (even tho it is today)! ANDDD My sister started living with me since she now goes to work where I work. BUSY weekend! But so much fun!!

Today’s nails are MOM inspired.

What I Used:
Base: China Glaze Seas the Day
Stamping: MoYou London Hipster plate 05, OPI 4 in the Morning & From A to Zurich, and China Glaze White on White for the hearts.

These nails, I know, aren’t typical ‘birthday’ themed. Mom has a thing for plaid shirts, even more for RED plaid, and it was what she was wearing yesterday when we celebrated her birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! LOVE YOU!

These are my “go-with-the-flow-I-don’t-know-what-I’m-doing-nails.”

Good Morning Nail Gang,

I hope everyone is having a great week. Hang in there it’s almost Friday. Today’s nails are random. I was trying to do some reverse stamping, trying to create mermaid nails, but it kept smudging and not working. So I gave up and painted my nails blue and felt like adding green glitter that had caught my eye. No idea what I was trying to do (beside making a huge mess), these nails remind me of Earth.

What I Used:
Base: China Glaze Frostbite
Glitter: WOW glitter, dark green

To make the glitter stick, I dabbed on some top coat and put glitter on my nails while the it was still wet. I let is sit there for a minute then brushed it off using a fan brush.

These were really easy to do and I LOVE the colour combination. Random nails sometimes work out better than the ideas in your head. It’s always a nice change to start doing something and not knowing where it will take you.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
