It's been 4 days since I did a post?? That is turrible!! I feel bad (kinda), but it was hot and sunny all weekend. You know what that means; pool time for me! Friday I hit that pool as soon as I got out of work at noon. I did manage to clean the house when I was done poolin' it, but then it was supper time. And after supper, it was hummingbird time. I've still been trying to get an hour out there every night just hoping to get some good stuff.

And I did get a couple of fun things. I won't bother you with them in here, but you can always see them on my Facebook page. Maybe I'll upload all of them to Youtube.  

So that's basically where my time has gone for the past 3 days. A few hours each day in the pool and taking videos. It's transferring those videos to my laptop and then editing them that takes forever so by the time I'm done, it's too late for nails. And I can't give up pool time. I'm trying to maintain this tan until we go to Cancun September 14th....ain't gonna' see me lobster red like some people get.  If I can keep what I've got, I won't have to go to the tanning bed.

Last night I finally did manage a mani, though.  It's always best to water marble on a weekend. Leaves plenty of time for mistakes and/or re-do's. I have had really good luck with mine lately. They've gone really fast. It used to be I needed hours to do a marble. Now I find that some of the striping tape or gradient stuff takes up more time for me. I guess at this point I've done enough marbling that I don't find them to be difficult any more. It's kinda' nice! They are much more fun to do when they play nice.

This all started because I wanted a color to smatch my shirt for today.  It's a barely peach/cream shirt; it's the exact color of the lightest color in this marble. I don't know why I've been feeling so smatchy lately.
Julep Sally, Julep Teri, China Glaze Life Preserver water marble
The lightest shade is Julep Sally; the middle coral is Julep Teri and China Glaze Life Preserver is my darkest shade.

I haven't decided if I'm going to take this off tonight or not. I really do love it. It's also gorgeous out, and if it's not raining this evening, I'm going to want some hummingbird time. Last week I was getting pretty chilly sitting out there, and I much prefer it when it's still warm. I think last night our temps didn't drop below around 72, so that is hot, especially when I consider that a week or so ago, my heat was kicking on in the morning.

So I may just leave this for another day.  Can't help it....I really love peaches and corals. Love 'em. Seriously. I love this marble. Admit it. It's pretty. 

Not as pretty as a marble my friend did with the entire Halo Hues collection, but I never liked her anyway.

    4. She doesn't get a baby tiara until I get a full-sized one. Sheesh.

  2. Ahem! Yes I read it!!! And your "friend" is flattered that you liked her mani so much. This is absolutely stunning, btw.

  3. Lovely! I'd like to see nails against smatchy top/shoes whatever you're smatching with!

    1. I know I should do that but never do. And now it's off my fingers so I can't show it up against the shirt.
