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 July...now I just have to figure out who I'm going to drag to it haha!
