excitement

So this would have been more fitting a few days ago when I posted about my new Katy Perry polishes, but...
My friends and I are going to see Katy Perry this summer!!
We bought tickets today.
(The reason this is so exciting is because we live in Newfoundland, and we never get to see anyone popular.)
We're flying to Montreal to see her on July 2nd.
I will be sporting Teenage Dream for sure!!

When I think of Katy Perry I think of bright colors and fun things, so here are some super bright rainbow water marble nails!

(click to enlarge)

Water marbling is not that easy. I'm never really a huge fan of the finished look, but I liked these.
The middle finger especially!

I hadn't cleaned up this hand before I took the picture. 
The pinky on this hand is adorable! If I could get all my nails to look like that it would be awesome.

I used all Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes in this marble.
I used White Out! as a base, and the colors are:
-Caribbean Coral (Red)
-Power Pink
-Sun Kissed (Orange)
-Mellow Yellow
-Going Green
-Green With Envy
-Blue Me Away!

Water marbling: frustrating, but sometimes cute.

  5. This is by far THE MOST AWESOME water marble I've *ever* seen!! Do you find that Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes are THE BEST one to water marble with?? Or just Sally Hansen in general .. I'm never disappointed with the results I get when I water marble with them.

  6. Thank you!!
    I'm not sure if I would call them THE best, but some are really good!
    China Glaze spreads out the nicest I think, in general.

  7. I tried using For Audrey in a water marble and I thought it dried too fast and was too heavy/gummy for the water. It didn't come out the way I wanted .. but, I've always had problems with my bottle of FA. I think I just got a bum batch. :(
