Confessions of a nail polish fiend


Turquoise Octopus and Rainbow Water Marble

Sun, 07/25/2010 - 8:35PM by Malevolent 0 Comments -

Its been over a week since I last undated. I have still be doing my nails, but I have been so busy between returning to college and working.  Last week (July 18th to the 24th) I was brave enough to try the water marble again but with seven different colors.  I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink.  I wanted a real rainbow design.  Here are my results...sorry about the HORRIBLE lighting in my bedroom.

I have to admit, but color combination didn't come out as strong as I wanted.  I used a golden yellow as my base instead of white, I think the colors would have been more vibrant if I had used the white base...oh well, next time!

This week my nails are turquoise with silver tips and clear circular nail art confetti.

This turned out a lot prettier then I would have ever imagined!  I was just playing around with color this time.  I had no design in mind. I just wanted to use my turquoise China Glaze polish and my new silver polish. I also wanted to use up some of my clear confetti since I have so much of it.  The circles look like the "suction cups" on an octopus' tentacles.  I love it!  When the circles "catch light", the new color combo creates an "undersea" effect...HARD to explain, but its really pretty and impossible for me to capture on camera...lol, figures.

And yes, my REALLY long nail (ring finger on left hand) finally broke (you can tell the difference between the two pics)...that's ok, it will grow back in two months or so.



I really like the nail art and the way you use the colors.
