To try to get myself in the Christmas spirit, last week I did a Christmas-inspired water marble. I've been on a water marble kick lately...this is my third in three weeks. Just before this mani, I had to chop off all my nails because I broke one down to the skin. I was afraid that the marbling wouldn't look as good on nubbins, but I think it turned out just fine. Let's see what I did, shall we?
I started with two of my favorite Zoya colors: Lisa (bright glass-flecked red) and Ivanka (glass-flecked green). I did a layer of Ivanka and then marbled on top of that.
I'm pretty disappointed with the quality of pictures I got with this water marble. It was so pretty IRL, but you'd never know it with the pics I got. It's hard to take good pictures with flash when it's pretty dark when I leave for work in the morning and already dark when I get home at night. Anyway...this is my left hand, indoors with flash.
Outdoors in indirect light. Gah! Such bad pics. This was so pretty - I got a TON of compliments with this mani. I wore it for days, which is usually unheard of for me. But for as busy as I've been lately, I'm lucky if I have time to change my mani every third or fourth day right now.
This is my right hand, indoors with flash. I think my thumbs were my favorite this time, though it was hard to pick because they all came out so good.
I tried to get a good pic with all my fingers together, but it didn't turn out so good. I need more practice and/or need to use a tripod more. I guess you're just going to have to trust me that this was a good marble. LOL I've found that photographing sparkly polishes are hardest to capture. I think I need to
Well, I'm off to get stuff done! I have a list a mile long of things I'd like to accomplish today. I wonder how far I'll get. Has the Christmas spirit found YOU yet?
