Summer Fun Challenge Day 6 - The Big Blue

Hey peeps!

I have been so hurried lately for some reason, I never seem to be able to do my nails before 11 or midnight so it doesn't really leave me much time for experimenting but I was determined to make this mani work! So determined in fact, that I said screw it all and kept polishing until 4:30am. The boyfriend was soo not happy with me yesterday morning. All he wanted was to get to the beach early and all I wanted (could) do was sleep. We eventually got there and had a great time.

BUT... I think it was worth it! I may have done my most successful watermarble mani yet! It is by no means perfect or up to par with some amazingness I've seen from other bloggers (I'm looking at Kelsie's recent watermarble), but it's my best so far. Mostly because I liked the colors I picked.

Since today is day 6 of Lindsey's (Neverland Nail Blog) Summer Fun Challenge and the theme is anything ocean or water related, I knew from day one I would do a watermarble. Wanna see? JK you're probably already looking at the pictures and not even reading this. It's ok, I won't blame you, I babble.




And a (super awkward) shot of my most favoritest thing ever about this mani: my thumbs! It was so completely obviously not on purpose, but I got a mirror image!


I'm getting better but my problem is I just cannot get the same image on all my nails. Just look at poor pinky sticking out like a sore thumb (badumtss!). Lol, but really. Pinky be trippin'. I did have to significantly trim down my nails too because my pointer and middle finger were all peely and stuffs so I had a sad for a while but this mani totally helped my sadness.

Sorry this was so wordy, have a great day and may your nails never break!

  1. This looks great, and your ring finger looks like a flower! I've still yet to brave a water marble...

    1. I actually did the ring finger first as a test and I liked it so much that's when I decided to do the rest! Thank you :D.

      It's definitely something that takes practice. Saying there's a learning curve is underestimating it but it's so worth it when you finally get it. Or so I've been told, I haven't fully 'gotten it' yet.

  4. I adore the colors you used! You shush up about that pinky, I like it just the way it is, it reminds me of one of those geometric print sun dresses that are everywhere this summer. That was so not babbling btw, nowhere near one of my posts :P
