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!
My favourite thing about doing my own acrylics is that I get to experiment with the nail shape without having to actually commit to changing my real nails. Turns out I really like almond shaped nails. Not super pointy, just a shape like an almond. Turns out said shape makes watermarbling be even more awesome than normal. I picked up a neon set of Color Club polishes from Winners and they make for excellent marbling. I've found that the newer the polishes, the better the result. This turned out perfectly even in terms of spread because all the polishes were the same. Also, liquid latex works really well to tape off your nails. The unicorns were just stuck on as usual with nail glue.
The Verdict: Love neon, love almonds, love unicorns, so of course this is win for me :D
