Matte black and a crappy marble

2 coats of Orly Matte Vinyl.  Oh how I love matte polishes...especially dark and/or vampy ones!  I just wish they wouldn't chip after a day or two of wear.  If someone ever invented a permanent nail polish I would wear matte black for the rest of my life. 

Anyways, as always I have to go ahead and ruin it with my stamping.

This is BM05 and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City.  I don't necessarily think this was a bad idea, just bad execution.  I'm getting super annoyed at not being able to stamp straight lately.

And in other rants...I'm giving up on marbling.  I just cannot seem to aim properly either.  This is 2 coats of OPI DS Sapphire:

For the marbling I used Color Club's Alias and I Believe in Amour along with clear polish in between.

First of all the pink seemed to blend into Alias which totally covered up all the sparkly awesomeness.  Second of all, I was going for the design like you see on my pinky but unfortunately I seemed to have missed half of my ring finger and then my index finger aim was totally off as well.  I just think that marbling isn't worth the effort when you can't get exactly what you want.  I think this is probably the 4th time I've tried it and it's never satisfied me.

Hey but life isn't all bad right now lol...they just announced this giant kick-ass metal fest in Toronto in I just have to figure out who I'm going to drag to it haha!



  1. Aw, I think you're being too hard on yourself--I like both the stamping and the marble! Some variation just makes things more interesting. :)

  2. Thanks but they looked a lot better in my head LOL
