Lots of new exciting nails...YAY!

It's been a while since I posted here... I've done sooo many nails it's unreal..

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.
