30 Day Challenge Day 20 Water Marble Wilderness Marble!!

Hi loves, this is gonna be a quick one because I want to get this posted before midnight so I can have it show up for the challenge on the host blog.  Anyway, what a night....I locked myself out of the house...had to wait for about, hmmm, 2 hours for Tony to get here with the keys to let me in.  So what's a girl to do you say? Well there were bottles of water on the porch (we always keep an extra case on the porch cause they all don't fit in the fridge).  I had a bowl sitting out there that the kids had used for something and I had a few polishes in my bag, because I ALWAYS have polish with me.  You see where this is going don't you?  Yes, I managed to gather up enough things to water marble my nails on my back porch while waiting to be let into my house.  Dedication some may say, insanity other may think? I don't give a flying squirrel, I got my marble done and that's all that matter.  And I did this sheet on a back porch with 2 kids crawling up my butt....



 
 

 
 

 
 
 

Not bad huh?  Sorry I did not use any untrieds, I didn't have any with me but I hope I won't be crucified for that.  I DID A WATER MARBLE WITH BASICALLY TWIGS AND A CAT'S WATER DISH, work with me here people.  I used Zoya Lara, Zoya Shelby and Essie Licorice.  I used the same crusty toothpick and q tip the whole way through, what a mess it was.  Thank God no one was taping me, I must have looked like a crazy person.  (Pipe down people, no comments from the peanut gallery).  The dots were done with the bobby pin I wore in my hair to work today, not my best but Dot really wanted to be involved in the "Wilderness Water Marble".

Hope it was worth it, what do you guys think?

  8. You girls are giving me waaaay too much credit!! Nicole-I cleaned up with burger king napkins and the 3 q tips I had with me. Luckily I had my nail things (some of them) in my car from doing my friends nails the other day. Laziness of not taking them out of my car paid off. Haha thank u all for your sweet comments--and yes--Susan I did lick the bits off. I mean why not? Who knew how long my husband would be?! ;)
