The very first thing I saw this morning when I got up was a notification on my phone that our friend Chris had left a comment on the Polish Sickness Facebook page. What a great way to start the day!! She is out of ICU and is definitely on the mend. Thanks for all the prayers. I'm pretty sure it was all the red manicures that did it, though. ;)
Nail polish shopping was a complete disappointment today. Not even one!! Clothes shopping was a success, and I did have fun buying a few things for Griffin. He has kept us laughing almost non-stop, and he really is such a good kid. "Out of the mouths of babes" definitely applies in this household. 

Another past manicure tonight. I do love me some marbled nails. I try to choose colors to put together that might not be an obvious choice, so this one is a bit different. I would do marbled nails damn near every day; I have to convince myself to NOT do them. To me, they are just one of the coolest things to have on my nails.
For this one I also used more colors than normal.  Most of the time I use 3 or 4; I decided to get wild and cray-cray on this one.  I just loved all of these colors together....Fingerpaints Hue Are You, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint (best light mint polish ever), Barielle Ocean Breeze, Essie Spinning Again and Wet n Wild Wet Cement. I was afraid using 5 might make it murky, but all of these worked really well. 

Tomorrow night will probs be another blast from the fairly recent past, but I'm hoping I'll still manage to chat it up a bit here. 

Until tomorrow.....have a great Sunday night!


  1. I love the colors :) you are SO good at water marbles!

    1. Thanks, Essie! I so appreciate the help you gave me with my blog. :)

  3. I love water marbles, they don't love me :( I'd probably do them all the time if I could actually get the darn technique down, think they are so awesome :)

    1. I love them, but I spent a LOT of time swearing at 'em while I was trying to learn how to do them. Sometimes I still do. lol

  4. I just love these colors!! Do you have any tutorials on how you do them? When i do it i always get air bubbles and its not smooth. Btw I am new to your blog and cant wait to see more of your color choices and designs.

    1. Cass, so glad you're stopping in. I actually do have a couple of very
      amateur videos on youtube on marbling. If you go to my profile, it will have
      a link to my youtube videos. I've only done a few that I had done for friends
      and they aren't great, but they do have some basic tips.
