I had just recently mastered the technique of water marbling, and it's so addictive and always looks awesome! But I didn't want to just do simple bog-standard water marble videos... I tried to think of something different and possibly original.
This rainbow look was purely from my imagination. It hasn't been tubed by anyone else [I don't think] although a couple of people have said they had similar ideas.
It was so much fun to do and since I posted it a few people have said they tried it out with different colours and with clear polish and it turned out awesome so...YAY!
Here's my other hand...
|Crap lighting, but looks pretty cool in the other direction|
Some people have said it can't be done on short nails. I respectfully disagree. It does look different, but it's still pretty cool. My cousin Rachel and her lovely younger sister Caitlin wanted in so I did the design on them too....
I had never done water marble on anyone except myself before so it was quite weird, and a little bit difficult at first to dip someone else's hands in the water as carefully as I dip my own... and this is what happened to Cookie Monster in the process:
|Cookie Monster's Been Chimney Sweeping!|
Yup. Only had him on for two days but to be honest he was starting to chip. This was a result of Seche Clear Base Coat. I used it because it's great for preventing yellow staining, but it starts peeling at the edges after about 24 hours. I LOVE Seche Vite Topcoat, but I think Seche base coat is crap!! Anyway here's the Cookie Monster video - a nice clean chimney sweep free design....
Preparing for halloween I thought I'd upload this design as well - Skull Butterflies! YAY!
These were not from my imagination but I did make them my own and put my own twist on them. They were originally created by Robin Moses - I'm addicted to her art and although I have plenty of imagination myself and don't need inspiration from others, I still HAD to paint these!
Here's my skull butterflies:
And here's the original design by Robin:
Skulls with butterflies... the possibilities are endless with far out weird-ass nails!
I never let anyone paint my nails... but if I ever met Robin I TOTALLY would! She's just been so awesome and lovely to me and I'm so glad I met her. One day we'll meet in real life and it'll be absolutely mental. We'll out-weird each other with our wise words and sparkly thoughts....
Ok so I think that's all I have to say today....
Sorry if I don't reply to comments yet, I still haven't fixed it. This technology and html shit is so complicated! And Blogger won't let me comment.
I'm working on it.
LOVE YOU ALL BYYYE!
