Water Marble or Dots, I can't Decide?!

Hi loves, what a busy week! Hope everyone is having a good week so far. We are so busy getting ready for back to school time, so sad to see summer go, but so glad to get my little heathens back in their routine.

So I wanted to try something different that I hadn't tried before but I was on a serious time crunch,  so I went with a good ol' water marble. I decided to change it up a little bit and do some dots with the marble just to see how it would look. I really like the contrast and the way it turned out. Someone on Instagram said it reminded them of candy, and I think that describes it perfectly!

For the marble I used OPI Cajun Shrimp and OPI Do You Lilac It? Yes, believe it or not I only used 2 colors. When I did the swirl it made it look as if there was a darker purple in there. That's what I think is so great about marbling. You never know how it's going to look. This can be a blessing or a curse at times. Thankfully for me, this time it was a blessing.  When I started I wasn't sure I liked these 2 colors together. I mean red and purple, really? But they actually played very well together. I've been getting much better at trying new color combinations and not sticking to my old favorites. 

Here's a shot of my elusive and very shy right hand. She never wants to have her picture taken. I think she is jealous because her sister gets all the love.

What do you think? Do you like the 2 designs together? I still have my water marble video tutorial coming soon. I am going to try to get it finished up tonight so hopefully that will be tomorrow's blog post. Fingers crossed....I really want to get it done for you all to see, it's just a little difficult finding time during the busy work week. 

On a side note, please pray for my friend, also named Nicole of Polish Me Please.  Her sister in law just had major brain surgery. I know what she is going through, my husband had a stroke and an aneurysm at age 32 for no apparent reason. He was so close to death, and to this day doesn't have use of his left arm. It is so hard to see someone you love fighting for their life.  Please keep her in your thoughts, her family really could use the love right now!

Have a great day guys and as always....Happy Polishing!!
