LUSTROUS MARBLE

Back in March I was lucky enough to have some of my manicures featured in an article in the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques and Spa magazine. Quite the thrill even though I didn't receive any type of credit for it. My panties aren't in a bunch over it; I'm simply tickled that it happened.

And yesterday, I found out that some more of my "semi-famous left hand" are in the May issue, too!! WooHoo!! What a fun thing to have happen to a little nobody that lives in bumf*** nowhere that has no training or anything that would even remotely qualify me to be doing any of this.  Brag over. :)

I did do a manicure last night but decided to pull out an older one instead for tonight. No reason; just cuz' I can. 

Short and sweet, here it is:
Sally Hansen Lustre Scarab Plume Lava Copperhead Firefly marble water marble
I've tried several times to get a multi/duochrome marble to turn out the way I want, but they never do. I'm sure I'll try again! But for this attempt I did a basecoat of "10" Professional black and then did my marble using the Sally Hansen Lustre collection, Scarab, Plume, Lava, Copperhead and Firefly.

Looking at this really does make me want to try another marble. I heart marbles and have to make a concerted effort to not do them all the damn time. They are for sure one of my fave things to have on my nails. 

I'm fresh out of snark tonight. Hopefully I'll have a fresh supply soon because I am bored with my own post this evening.  So I'm outtie.

  1. oh wow, I love this. Would love to learn how to do it. I think you should do a book with step-by-step pics of the beautiful manis you do. With this being so big now, you'd do well!

    1. Arlene, if you wander over to my pic up in the right hand corner and click on my profile, you can see 3 marble videos I did. They aren't great but they give a few tips.

  2. Oh wow, gorgeous! I love the metalic marbles! Do you have any nail growing/strengthening tips? I'm desperately trying to grow mine but they break and split so often, I've got more glued patches than nails at the Mo:( If u already have a post on your blog point me in the right direction!

    1. My natural nails are a disaster, Faddict. I gave up on them 30 years ago.
      These are Custom Nail Solutions nails. If you go look at my first few
      blog posts, you'll learn about them and see some different lengths and
      without polish. :)

    2. No way, these are fab! The only reason I won't be $139 poorer is because they don't ship to all countries yet 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。

    3. Yes way! lol
      I know they do ship to some countries. For sure there are people in the UK that have gotten them. I think if you drop them an email they can tell you where they ship because I don't know that they say on the site.
