Neon Yellow Water Marble

Happy 4th to my American readers today! Unfortunately, I ran out of time for a patriotic mani, so you get a water marble instead! :)

For this marble, I began with two coats of ellagee's Platinum. Then I used Pipedream Light on Day marbled with one other color from the collection on each nail. My pinkie nail is High Roller, ring nail is On the List, middle nail is Happy Hour, index nail is VIP Pass, and 110 Degrees on my thumb. I finished it all up with one coat of Rainbow Syrup by ellagee. This gave my nails a nice, holographic sheen of awesomeness! Enjoy, and be safe around fireworks today! :)

Pastel Water Marble

Alright, back to water marbles! I hope you don't mind my obsession lately! It's just the easiest form of nail art for me, and my creative mind hasn't been working for well lately otherwise! Today's water marble features the classic flower shape. 

All polishes used for this marble are made by ellagee. I began with a base of two coats of Platinum. Then I used Forgetful Lucy (pink), Wrapped in Ribbon (white), and an early version of Salty Breeze, which was actually more lilac in color. I held the bottle for the polishes so you could see its coloring. The lilac polish is the hardest one to pick up in the marble itself, but I love how soft and feminine this marble turned out! Enjoy! :)

Flower Blobbicure

Ready for a break from water marbles? Hehehe! I have a fun blobbicure for you today! Remember, blobbicures are when you polish a thick layer of polish and then blob polish onto it while it's still wet. Since you're blobbing it onto wet polish, it'll spread and look almost like a mosaic! It's pretty awesome!

Anyway, I used all ellagee polishes for this blobbicure. I polished Salty Breeze on my pinkie, middle, and index nails. By the Sea is the base for my ring nail. I polished one coat of polish on each nail. Then, I worked with one nail at a time. For example, I polished a really thick coat of Salty Breeze on my index nail. I then immediately blobbed on By the Sea in a flower shape, finishing with a blob of She Sells Seashells in the middle. Then I moved on to the next nail. You can blob with the brush itself, but I prefer to drop the polish onto paper, and then use a dotting tool to blob the polish on. It makes the blobs more uniform, in my opinion. Enjoy! :)

Indie Spotlight: Unicorn Cahoots Box

{Press Sample}

Laura and Raph are at it again, creating another gorgeous duo for all of you polish lovers out there! This duo has been appropriately named Unicorn Cahoots, and it's a set you'll definitely want to get your polished talons on!

This duo comes loaded with tons of goodies! Two polishes, unicorn poop, unicorn nail stickers, nail polish magnets and stickers, and some tasty fun-sized candy, all for $25 shipped! And if I do say so myself, the unicorn poop is pretty darn cute! Each poop is unique, too!


Raph's contribution comes in the form of Unicorn Soup by Digital Nails. This is the glitter topper to end all glitter toppers! It's packed with an array of glitter in many shapes and colors. The best part about this polish? It has so much glitter in it that you only need one coat over your base color! I did two coats of ellagee's Platinum topped with one coat of Unicorn Soup!

Indie Spotlight: ellagee's Alexandrite Duo

{Press Sample}

I apologize for my absence lately! I have a lot of really exciting things happening right now in my life, and it has kept me away from the blog. If my appearance becomes more sporadic over the next few months, fear not! I am alive, well, and happily busy! I'm going to try to keep up my normal posting as much as possible! :) And no, I'm not pregnant. :P

Ok June babies, are you ready for your birthstone duo from ellagee? Alexandrite is a lovely pale lilac purple that Laura captured perfectly. These polishes are $10 each, or you can buy the duo for $18.

Glimmering Alexandrite is a medium lilac polish with pink shimmer. I did two regular coats of polish for the opacity you see below. I love the shimmer in this polish! It's absolute perfection!

Crushed Alexandrite compliments Glimmering Alexandrite so well! It's a clear base with metallic and holo lavender glitters. I used one coat and created a gradient with it over Glimmering Alexandrite. Enjoy! :)

Neon Mum Water Marble

I have another water marble for you today because WATER MARBLE ALL THE THINGS! :) I decided to marble over a vinyl stencil today, which I've never done before. I definitely need more practice with it, but I'm pleased with how it turned out for my first time!

I began with two coats of ellagee's Platinum. I then used Pipedream's All In (blue), High Roller (green), and On the List (pink) to create the marble you see. On my accent nail I used Love Angeline's Stuck on Love nail vinyl shields in the mum shape. I love the vinyl so so much, but it was a pain in the you-know-what to weed (when you poke out the vinyl pieces that are still in the middle). So MANY LITTLE PIECES. At any rate, I placed the shield on my nail, painted Latex Mani Mask around it, then dipped my finger in the marbling. It looks pretty cool, and I'm excited to experiment more with water marbling over vinyls in the future! Enjoy! :)

Bleached Neon Water Marble

{Polishes Used Were Press Sample}

I've been bitten by the water marbling bug lately! I just want to WATER MARBLE ALL THE THINGS! For quite some time, I was swamped with a ton of polishes to swatch. Now that I'm less overwhelmed, I get the itch to marble every single time I sit down at my desk. I have loads of stamps and vinyl decals ripe for the using, but no, marbling has been calling to me. Probably because lately I have so many polishes that work so well for marbling! I'm so impressed with ellagee's Bleached Neons Collection that I just want to wear those all day, every day. I used them for my marble today!

I began with two coats of a white polish as my undies. Then, I used Beach Bum (peach), By The Sea (teal), and Salty Breeze (purple) for the marbling. I always seem to use the floral-ish design, so this time I went with something new I had never seen done before. The results, well, I'm pretty much in love with them! One coat of top coat and my look was complete! Plan on seeing many, many more marbles using these polishes soon! Enjoy! :)
