Day 20- I was not looking forward to this at all!!! I have tried water marbling before and it is always the biggest fail!!!! But I decided I was going to tackle this one head on today and just do it and I think the results speak for themselves. My nails look like everyone elses!! I heard that Essie nail polishes worked really well so I decided to use my 3 brightest shades and give it a go. Firstly I painted my nails white all over with Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in White On (which is now starting to run out and go gloopy *sad face*) and then dripped Haute as Hello, Coat Azure and Chastity into a cup of water and you know how the rest of it goes. I used a new top coat (Sally Hansen's- Insta Dry) on these and it all funny over this manicure, there were a couple of water/air bubbles in the polish so I think that was the problem but it still looks ok to me. I have to thank my flatmate Polly for helping me with these otherwise it would have been a complete failure. I will upload a couple more days now so you can see my weekend nails.

It would appear that I am up to date with my nails now so I will try to stay on top of the blog as much as I can now.

Day 2- Today's nails were hard to do for me as I didn't think I would be able to find any orange nail polish, but as it turns out I have a few orange shades. The colours I used are (L-R) Essie - Haute as Hello, A randon LA Colors yellow/orange, Chi Chi - Choose Chi Chi, CR-101 and Sports Girl-Orange with Sally Hansen Mega Shine on top of all of them. I loved the sports girl one and it is pretty much a one coater but I did 2 coats on each for good measure.
Day 3- I really love this colour, its Butter London in Cheeky Chops, it is the nicest yellow nail polish I have ever worn, it's really creamy and smooth the only issue I have with it is that I had to do 3 coats. The black crackle/shatter is Barry M Instant Effects in Black which is my favourite of the crackle polishes, my OPI Shatter dried up and evaporated and was really thick from day one, but the Barry M has been amazing! I want to get a gold shatter next though, I think it would look really pretty over taupe nail polish. As usual I have Sally Hansen Mega Shine as a top coat.
I am having a lot of fun doing my nails and I can't wait for the inspired by section.
I painted my nails with BYS Matte Red and Princess Mistic Red (Red Glitter) with half of them painted with BYS Matte Top Coat and the tips done with Sally Hansen's Mega Shine (Best top coat in my view), I liked the way they turned out but the photo's don't show the matte texture too well.
I know I haven't uploaded daily but I can promise that I am painting them everyday.
