A little nail art

I've got a little something different to share today. For the last couple of years, I've been getting into nail polish. Love it. There's something about looking down and seeing happy color on my nails that just makes me feel good. Usually, I just pick a color and paint my nails and that's that. But last night, while the husband was out with his friends and the boys were in bed asleep, I decided to get a little crafty with my nails and attempted my first-ever water-marbled manicure.

my first water marble manicure
Using My Simple Little Pleasures's fabulous video tutorials as a guide, I managed to successfully do all 10 of my nails. I started with a base coat of Nubar Faded Putty and then did the marbling with Nubar Edgy Umber, Zoya Dove, and O.P.I. Mermaid Tears. It wasn't hard, but it was definitely time consuming.

It was a lot of fun to try something new!


  1. Your nails look amazing!! Oh the possibilities!!

  2. Very cool! I saw this before and was almost tempted to buy some nail polish, lol.
