Inspired By... Simple Little Pleasures

Hey guys! 

Today's post is inspired by a YouTube video that Sarah from Chalkboard Nails tweeted a few weeks back. If you know me at all, you know I have a love/hate relationship with water marbling. I absolutely love the look of it but I don't often pull off a successful water marble.

So when I saw this video, I literally gasped. It was beautiful. I had to try it.

I decided to try it using many of the same colors as Colette did because obviously that will make me better at water marbling :-p  The only thing that I should have done was use a black base; I used a white base.

I used Color Club Beyond, Kismet, and Eternal Beauty. My toothpick drawing skills in the water marble are rather abysmal... that is probably the most challenging part for me, lol. But This turned out pretty well, at least for my usual marbling standards.

 Definitely not as pretty as the manicure it was modeled after but I'm still calling it a success!
