Rainbow Dry Marbling

After the reasonable success of my last dry marbing experiment, despite the emotional pain inflicted on my camera, I decided to give it another shot, this time with raaaaaaaiiinbows.  I fear that, while very rainbowy, I've made a huuge mistake that kinda ruins it.

First up, I got out my handy sandwich bag and painted a rainbow strip with five different LA Color Art Deco Colors I found at Honest Ed's for $2 each.  Once each stripe was done, I took a toothpick and dragged it through all the colours.  Awesome, wicked sick, I even made enough for if I messed up one and left it on an angle like last time.  Chopping a bit off one end, all ready to stick on my heavy coat of Seche Vite.  Here I come to a cross roads.  Blue end or red end at the cuticle?  Shoulda chosen blue because now it looks like I have the most terrible cuticles.  And now my ring finger hurts from trying to get the red off :(







The Verdict: I like the colours and the rainbow, I'm just already super self-conscious about my cuticles, being a recovering cuticle-picker who's under an enormous amount of pressure.  Next time, NEVER RED AGAINST THE CUTICLES.

  1. BUT, it looks great! Do you have any issue with your toothpicks making too much of a mark in the polish? I switched to a pin because I only had fat toothpicks that left a trail of bare nail.

  2. While I understand your issue with your cuticles, these look *awesome* and I'm pinning it. ^_^

  4. So you dry marbled on the sandwhich bag? How did you get the polish onto your nails? -interested-

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
