Halloween Challenge Day 2: Water Marble

Yayyy! I LOVE water marbling.

 I've always had a knack for it, and I absolutely love the way it looks. The marble day for the 31DC2012 isn't for a while, so I'm glad the Halloween one had it sooner! 

I tried to make the designs look a little less than perfect to try and portray a spooky factor, but I don't think that was a success. 

China Glaze: Gaga for Green
China Glaze: Ghoulish Glow

I could not get a picture of the glowing ring in the marble to save my life. I'm pretty new at learning photography, so I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually!

O.P.I- Alpine Snow
Essie- Good To Go 
Essie: Orange, It's Obvious
China Glaze: Urban Night

31DC2012 Day 4: Green Nails

Today we are featuring China Glaze: Gaga for Green for, well.. Green day!

Gaga for Green is my mom's Lemon Fizz to her (which is my favorite polish), she loves it! I think it's pretty, but there are more that I like better! Gaga for Green is a part of their Electropop collection, so it was limited edition. It's a not quite lime green cream. It leans more yellow to me.

I topped it off with JENsations Melon-coly, which is the cutest summery polish! Event though summer is over, I hadn't used it yet, and I thought it would pair greatly with this color!

The application of Melon-coly was pretty good overall. But the white bar glitter was either dominant, or non-existent. It may have just been the way I was applying, but it was a little tricky for me. I was pleasantly surprised that the black hexes applied as well as they did. I didn't have to dig for them at all!

Jensations is one of our favorite indie polish makers and we LOVE her star bottles, check her out here!

Up Next: Blue!

31DC2012 Day 3: Yellow Nails

Today, I got to use my favorite polish. China Glaze Lemon Fizz is hands down the best polish we own. Today I used it to create Pikachu nails!

Not only did I get to use my favorite, but these nails have a bit of nostalgia for me. I first tried these nails two years ago as my first ever try at nail art. Thanks, Cute Polish! This time around, I knew a lot more about what I was doing. :) I'll attach a picture of my first attempt at the end of the post. I don't think it was awful for being my first attempt!

Anyway, back to yellow. Lemon Fizz is a light yellow cream, and there isn't another like it in my opinion. Sure, there are polishes that look similar in the bottle, but none of them apply the same or have the same finish as this one. Trust me, I've scoped out any dupes trying to find one when I realized Lemon Fizz was limited edition. But I stopped scouring when I discovered Head2Toe Beauty. Since then, I've bought three bottles!

Here's my first attempt at the design, not too shabby, right?

Green nails tomorrow!
