Wednesday Water Marble

Hello there!

I feel like I haven't blogged in forever.  I mean, I really haven't.  I just haven't felt very motivated to much of anything, let alone change my nail polish.  I did it though.  I figured you were all anticipating the Wednesday Water Marble.  I'm still mad at myself for missing the one from a couple weeks ago.  It was the "Boyfriend's Pick" from what I recall.  He sure did pick, but it just never happened.  I really need to make that one up to you guys...or girls.  lol.  So I've been wanting to do an all yellow water marble, but I don't own so many different yellows that you'd even be able to see the contrast.  Soooo, instead Ashley and I agreed on a sunset inspired marble.  That was I still get to use my yellows, but it will have a little something extra.  Here is my inspiration photo.

Nothing special.  Just a lovely yellow/orange sky with a pop of purple or pink.  Whatever.  So here's what I came up with.

See it's "sunset-y.  Like a sunset.  I'm really digging it."  If you know what that's from then awesome.  If not, then I'll tell you it's one of my fave movies of all time.  Don't think I'm a nerd or anything, but Baby Mama is one of the most hilarious movies I've ever seen a hundred times.  But back to the mani.

I tried to make the purple really subtle and light so I used mostly yellows and only the one drop of purple every 4 rings.  Make sense?  lol

Sinful Colors Firefly - 1 coat for base
Sinful Colors Firefly
China Glaze Lighthouse
OPI Peach-a-Boo! - 3 drops for each time
China Glaze Señorita Bonita

I totally messed up my pointer finger.  I have no idea what I smudged it on or that I had even smudged it all. I used the same technique as the Fire Marble just cuz I wanted to.  lol And then I used a swirl on my thumb just to see how it would turn out.  I'm very happy with this one and I hope you all are too.
