I have a thing for rainbows. I mean, who doesn’t? They’re just so pretty! But it does seem somewhat surprising for me. My wardrobe tends to lean more towards black, black, and – you guessed it – black. But I guess I’m a closet colour-lover (is that really something to hide???).
I have a problem with red. Nail polish, that is. The ones I have are all thin, translucent things, that take many coats to gather any semblance of opacity, and even then you can still typically see your smile line. Oh, and that’s not the worst of it. They don’t photograph well. As in, you can try taking thirty shots in different light using different filters on the camera, and only one will turn out remotely close to the original.
Each time I do my nails, it’s a new challenge. What can I do that’s different from what I’ve done before? What can I do that is good enough to see on my nails for days on end? I’ll be honest: I get bored very easily. Once something becomes common, it is no longer interesting.
Just as well my foil collection is underused.
Haha. Get it? A whisper of colour?
Okay, okay, so I’m just amusing myself with the Understatement of the Year. Moving on.
I figured I’d try my hand at DIY water marbling. Although, I guess without the water, it’s not so much a water marble as just plain marble. Meh. You catch my drift. You. Catch. My. Drift. I’ve seen this done to very pretty results. So why not give it a whack?
