Four Elements Challenge: Water

The challenge for this week was water. So I stepped out of my comfort zone to do a water inspired mani.
I'm not going to ramble about it... So here it is.

This was my first attempt at a water marble mani and I hated it. I couldn't stand the process. When I paint my nails I paint them how I'm going to leave clean up. I like to paint 'in the lines'. This was just so messy. I won't be trying it again

If you're wondering what I used... I used a base of CG Aquadelic then used CG Devinatly Daring, Cheers To You and Nyx Mermaid Green to marble. I topped it all off with a coat of CG Fairy Dust to add some sparkle.

Luckily my make up turned out a lot better!

I'm not really keen on wearing a lot of make up so I don't have foundation or blush or anything exciting on in these pictures, just eye shadow, liner, mascara and my favourite matte lipstick.

And introducing my new haircut. I chopped it all off to my shoulders and now have no blonde left in at all. This is my natural hair colour!

  1. The light blue and the pink together is so gorgeous.

  2. For a first attempt that's super cool. My third attempt did not even look half as good.

    1. Thanks! It's a different kind of process. Now I just need to master stamping

  3. I love your mani!!
    Makeup looks great too!

  4. I love your mani and your make up. Watermarble gaves amazing effect on nails, although there's a lot of clening to do with this tehnicque. I like the color combo, you used.

    1. Thanks! Water marbling looks so pretty, but I'm a little odd about my hands... I mean I won't touch chalk so having dirty hands was a big deal for me lol.
