I've been playing with my nails for the past few hours because I have nail class tomorrow and I wanted to come up with a mani to impress my teacher :) I wanted to try a marbling design since I've always loved the look hence my blog name but after a few attempts I was very disappointed with the results. Instead I brought out my Konad kit today and stamped on a few snowflakes. GOSH this took me almost 2 hours to do! I'm such a newb. I know it's 'Summer' now but it's actually Wintertime here in Sydney. Since I grew up in Toronto I've always been acustomed to a white Christmas but since we don't have any snow here in Sydney these Konad snowflakes will have to do..
This is my Konad station. I'm a super lazy bum so I decided to do it all in bed because it's cold right now and I have the padded heater under my sheets.. mmm warm :)
You can't really see the detail but that little rhinestone is heart shaped. I actually messed up the stamping and left a really big gap near the top left corner so I just stuck on a rhinestone.I used OPI's Purple With A Purpose for the majority of the snowflakes. It's very subtle.
And here is my embarassing marbling attempt. I used OPI's Purple With A Purpose and OPI's Do You Lilac It? . Dabbed it onto my nails and started mixing it up with a bobby pin. Horrible :(
Does anyone have tips on marbling designs?
PS. Euna Lee and Laura Ling are back in America! YAYYY!
