Hallowe'en Week - Bloooooooood Water Marble

Nails I Love

HALLOWE’EN WEEK – Blood Water Marble

Hi Goddesses

So, I’ve become a little obsessed with water marbling of late, and am getting in the habit of doing one every Sunday night so it becomes My Monday Marble Mani lol – mmmm that sounds good lol – and I hit on this idea for Hallowe’en, but would have probably thought of it eventually anyway, with red being one of my favourite colours.

I am finding lately that I no longer count sheep, and that my favourite falling asleep (or actually NOT falling asleep) trick is to think of colours that would work well together for marbling or other art.  Shheeeesh – something’s a little loose in this head!

Unfortunately, this one wasn’t as easy as you’d think – I found it very hard to find a lighter red that didn’t go pink in the water.  You should have seen my first bullseye!  There was pink and purple and every shade in between, lol but bugger me, there wasn’t any red!

Eventually I settled on OPI Vodka and Caviar, as it just behaved better than the others, Color Club Red-ical Gypsy for the vampy red and OPI Boris & Natasha (one of my very favourites) for the burgundy red / dried blood.

As I said, I really love water marbling.  I think it’s something about not knowing what I’m going to end up with – it mystifies me how Colette can get every nail looking pretty much the same.  How does she do that ??  Who knows, but I find water marbles more beautiful than anything else, they really hypnotise me.

As is often the case, it’s the index and middle finger on the left hand that I love the most.  This is the 2nd set of nails that I do, so I assume it’s better cos I learn from what didn’t work out on the thumb!  As always, there was one particularly gorgeous pattern that ended up on the tape – gggrrr, Must Place Nail Better!

Really loved wearing this.  Maybe it doesn’t look that much like blood after all, but it sure was pretty J

Enjoy xxx J
