30 Day Challenge - Day 2 Orange (Water Marble Fun)

Well I made it through Day 1 with barely a scratch and only slight staining from that devilish red polish.  I am happy we are on to bigger and brighter things, nails, colors, oh ok, I'm glad we are done with that stinkin red polish!!  There I said it....*regains composure*.....and today we have the lovely and talented color Orange to play with!!

I normally don't wear much orange unless it is a cantaloup-ey (yes it's a word, just work with me here people).  I wanted to use a traditional orange so I knew I'd have to incorporate some nail art.  Indeed I did.  Of course I didn't know what so I just did 2 of my favorite things....marbling and flowers.  My untried for this challenge is Essie Orange It's Obvious.  I've had it forever and have never bothered to even crack open the bottle.  *I had to do Chloe's rubber band around the bottle trick*.

My white was China Glaze White on White and the green centers were done with a striping polish I have had for an eternity.  The color and brand name are rubbed off but I think it's a Sinful one.  The colors marbled together just swimmingly.  The Essie Orange It's Obvious is a very saturated creamy orange.  I don't wear much of this color but it would look amazing with a tan on a hot summer day!!

I'm loving seeing all of the great entries for this challenge!! Hope you guys enjoyed this one, I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

Happy Polishing and Happy Challenge!!!
