The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Gizmo-cat Water Marble!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another installment of ‘get to know me’! If you were extra observant, you may have noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. As it happens, I’m having a particularly busy week in my ‘day job’ and I haven’t been able to finish all 5 looks for this week’s theme. I’ll probably be skipping another day as well. Let’s just call it a part of getting to know me!

I’ve dedicated today’s nail art to my beloved cat, Gizmo. Gizmo came into our lives a little over 2 years ago when my husband found him crying and hiding under my car, scared and hungry. He was still a baby, only about 2 and a half months old. Luckily, all he needed was some food and some love. He purred his way into our hearts and has stayed there ever since 🙂 (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Color Club Halo Hues!

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I’ve actually been having an incredibly busy week, so I wouldn’t have had time to do a marble for today. Fortunately, I did a whole bunch a week or so ago and I could use one of those, so we still get to enjoy water marble goodness!

You may recall how enthusiastic I was about the stamping abilities of the Color Club Halo Hues a while ago. Well, it turns out they can marble beautifully too! What can’t they do? I’ll have to get my hands on some more of them 🙂 (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen Birthday post and this time we have something extra special up our collective sleeve! Rather than celebrating one of the group’s birthdays, we’re celebrating a brand new birthday. Amber of Nails like Lace had a baby girl! We decided to surprise her with celebratory baby-girl nails 🙂

Since it’s Wednesday, I decided to make mine a girly Water Marble Wednesday. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I didn’t do a water marble last week since I couldn’t think of a good way to include it in the Digital Dozen theme, but I’m back with something extra colourful and swirly today. (more…)

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! Your favourite time of the week (right?) and I have a really good one to share with you today! In fact, I almost didn’t post this today because I kept thinking it was Thursday! Luckily I decided to check my blog calendar and saw that I had this post planned.

We are having the craziest weather here the past couple of weeks. We’ll have a couple of really warm days, then it’ll be freezing again; snow and then a thunderstorm; and today there are blustering winds! I’ve always loved the warmer weather so I can’t wait until we’re properly into Spring. On to my bright, summery water marble! (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Red, Blue and Silver

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday! I have really been enjoying getting back into water marbling and I’m glad I decided to bring the series back for a while. I used some shades from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection for last week’s marble, and I decided to make use of the same collection this week. They really do marble beautifully and I’m sure I’ll be reaching for them again and again! There are so many different colour combinations to be used from the collection, too – it’s a 10-piece collection so think of how many different combinations I can come up with 🙂 (more…)

Hi everyone!

As promised, I’ve got another installment of Water Marble Wednesday to share with you today. I’ve used three of the polishes from the Polish ‘M Christmas collection, some of which I showed you earlier this week, to create a bright and fun marble. (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Black: Water Marble

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen Does Black! So far I’ve shared two stamped looks exploiting the contrast between glossy and matte – one with pink accents, and the other with gold. Today I’m finally steering away from the stamping. I enjoyed the milky coffee water marble I did last week so much that I’ve decided to bring Water Marble Wednesday back for a while! I won’t be committing to posting a marble every single Wednesday, but I do have a couple lined up and ideas for a few more 🙂 I’m starting it off today with a black and clear water marble over a neon gradient.

Water Marble Wednesday – Milky Coffee

Hi everyone!

It’s been ages since I’ve done a Water Marble Wednesday post! Honestly, I just happened to do a water marble, so why not share it on a Wednesday? 🙂
Ever since I got some new Zoyas a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to use them in water marbles. In fact, I already did my bright 60s water marble a couple of weeks ago with some of them. I couldn’t get the brown and the nude I’d bought out of my head though… wouldn’t these be perfect for some coffee-inspired marbling? (more…)
