Water Marble Wednesday: Rainy Days

Painted Fingertips | Rainy Day Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! The past few weeks I’ve been struggling to come up with unique ideas for my water marbles. The other day I was brainstorming ideas of what real-life things might look like a water marble (think my woodgrain water marble from a while back). Well, the weather we’ve been having lately gave me the idea I needed! It’s winter here and that means a lot of rainy days. I figured rain can be artistically represented with flowing lines, so all I needed was the right colour scheme:Painted Fingertips | Rainy Day Water MarbleSee? Isn’t it just a miserable rainy day that makes you want to cuddle up under a blanket with a warm cup of tea? Painted Fingertips | Rainy Day Water MarbleI started off with a base of Sinful Colors Ciel and then I marbled with Ciel along with Rimmel Man Overboard and Tip Top Calm Before the Storm and Stormy Sky. Sometimes I just can’t resist basing my choice of polishes just a little bit on their names!

    I think it’s lovely. It’s winter here too so I’m snuggling up under a warm blanket and drinking ….coffee. Can’t come at tea. But I get the picture! Very clever polish selection!

      Thank you! I on the other hand am not a coffee drinker. But it’s the same idea! 🙂
