Autumny Water Marble

Hi everyone!

In case you’re wondering why I would do an autumny mani when here in South Africa it’s summer, well, I didn’t plan it that way! I just picked out some colours I thought would go well together and only once I was finished did I realise they were a pretty autumny combination 🙂 So for those of you in the Northern hemisphere – enjoy this as an end-of-autumn water marble!water-marble-lava-baker-street-beach-babe-1I started off with a coat of Sally Hansen White On to create a base for my water marble, then I did a coat of Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Lava since I realised it would be a bit too sheer over the white in the water marble. I then did my water marble using Lava along with Nails Inc Belgrave Place and Tip Top Nail Chic Beach Babe. water-marble-lava-baker-street-beach-babe-1I really liked this on my nails – Lava gave it such a great sparkle and it looked amazing in the sun!

I just couldn’t get a decent one!water-marble-lava-baker-street-beach-babe-1I have so much fun doing water marbles! I always love them, even if they’re not perfect – they’re supposed to look random after all! They’re always a winner with Mr Boyfriend as well 😀 I hope you like them too!

    Hi, I’m stopping by from the WPNFF Beginner Blogger’s Bootcamp! First of all, I really love your nails, the designs and executions are awesome! I really like your blog layout too. It’s really clean and easy to navigate. I also love the banner of your past manicures at the top!

    The only thing that I’m personally not crazy about is the endless scrolling on the homepage. It’s just a personal preference and definitely not anything that detracts from your blog, just something I thought I would mention. Overall I really like your blog and I think you’re doing a great job!

      Thanks so much for the comment! It’s good to know that I’m mostly doing ok 🙂 I’ll keep it in mind that you don’t like the infinite scrolling and maybe see how it looks without it 🙂
