Blue Marble

So I am super excited about this look we did on my nails yesterday. We saw this done online and were curious to try it out. I decided to use blue colors since its my favorite and I had plenty of blue polishes I hadn't used yet. At first I was afraid that it would be too much on all 10 nails. However, as soon as we did the marble effect on a nail on each hand... HOOKED!

I'm not even brave enough to attempt to create a tutorial for this. Instead, My Simple Little Pleasures has an amazing tutorial.

For this look, we put 2 coats of Sally Hansen "Blue Me Away" as the base because we were afraid the marble colors might be see-through. Then we used Sally Hansen "Ocean View", Sally Hansen "Blue Me Away," and Essie's "Sag Harbor" to create the marble effect. (Sally Hansen's "Ocean View" and "Blue Me Away" are swatched here.)

Hopefully I'll remember to take a picture of this in the sunlight tomorrow. "Ocean View" has some shimmer to it and it's beautiful in the sun!

Hope you guys like it!
