Sally Hansen Water Marble Week: Blue Me Away!

 The grand finale of Sally Hansen Water Marble Week has now come to an end. *tear Even though this week's water marble theme has come to it's end, I still have so many other color themes I would like to do. There's purple, green, black and white, and so many other great color combinations, so I know I will end up doing this theme again in the future. For today, however, I will settle on showing you my blue themed water marble. I used White On, Blue Me Away! and Blue It with White On as a base.

 I haven't mentioned my nail polish usage in any of my posts, but I actually use A LOT of nail polish. I use about 10 drops of nail polish to be able to incorporate all the colors on one nail. It also allows room for error because if you mess up on one side, you can just  move to the opposite side and start over.

 This water marble didn't quite turn out how I wanted, but I was happy with the end result. Initially, I attempted to get the marbling to go in the same direction for all the nails, but I fudged up on two nails. You can see that the pinky and index have the "half flowers" going the opposite way from the rest of the nails. Although, this wasn't what I wanted, I was actually happy because instead of the "half flowers" I was going for, I was able to get "waves"! Or at least that's what it reminds me of. It's so bright and blue, that it makes me want to go swimming!

 I don't know who invented water marbling, but props to them. This is a great way to achieve nail art without being an artist, which is always welcome in my book! I'm not great at freehand, so this technique is something that I am grateful for.

 Next week, I have decided to do a Lynderella week because, honestly, her polishes deserve a whole week of their own... aaand I'm dying to wear Connect the Dots again! Ok, so my decision might have something to do with my craving for Connect the Dots, but there are other great creations of hers that I would like to share. *psst there may or may not be a silver holo involved as well.
