Minty Marble

Hi there lovelies! We’re halfway through this lovely, wet, rainy week and man, am I looking forward to the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job but I need sleep so bad! I’m yawning as I’m typing this post out! It’s ridiculous! And it’s been miserable and rainy here since last week Friday. Weather like this should not be spent in an office, people! I need to be in bed with a book!

But anyhoo, mid-week medium rant (or moan fest) over. Let’s get on to "Le good stuff" shall we? 

As you guys know, I have an unashamedly big love for water marbling. I am constantly looking for ways to bring it into my mani’s and what better way is there than with a skittlelette mani?






I started by laying down a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my middle finger and water marbled using Sinful Colors Island Coral and China Glaze Re-fresh Mint. On my ring finger I layed down 2 coats of Sinful Colors Island Coral and simply took 2 gold heart shaped studs and colored them using China Glaze Re-fresh Mint. To finish off the look, I added 2 coats of L.A. Girl Green Sand on my thumb, index finger and pinky.






I really loved how this came out! It’s the type of mani I could easily wear for 2 days AND I got to scratch my water marbling itch, even if it was only slighty. Hmmm...now to ponder on my next water marble mani without making you guys sick of them!

If you would like me to swatch any of the colors you saw in today’s post, please let me know via email or drop me a comment below. More than willing to oblige! 

Lots of mad love...
