A Sexy Little Water Marble (and a Side of Psychosis)

Hi all, I've missed you guys this week.  Things have been cray cray (my new favorite phrase by the way) lately.  But I did manage to get a hot little mani done for you all.  I did this a few days ago, but I'm just getting around to posting.  Hopefully it was worth the wait. 

So usually when I water marble I use a white base...no matter what color's I am using for the marble.  But I was inspired by my friend Jeanette over at The Swatchaholic.  If you haven't checked out her blog, (which I'm sure you have, she is amazing and I am such a fan girl, high pitched shrieking as if I'm 10 and just met Justin Bieber obsessed with her but not in that I want to stalk you sort of way, more in that I think you are so talented and we should be BFF's sort of way) phew, then you definitely should!  She did a water marble (one of her first and it was devine, so unfair but I'm happy for her cause like I said, obsessed) and she used black underwear instead of white.  It turned out so pretty and I thought to myself, girl get out of those white granny panties and throw on these sexy black ones.  So that is exactly what I did and boy am I glad I did!


 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 
Sorry the pics are not the greatest, I am really annoyed with my phone, I hate having to use it for photos.  My camera crapped out and I am saving for a new one.  Bear with me for a little, the new camera is coming soon! 
 
I used the China Glaze Bohemian Collection for this marble.  They are so so so good for water marbling.  I used them once before with no base and I was really happy with how it turned out.  I am much more thrilled with this sexy number!  I never thought about using black as a base but it works really well, at least for these shimmery somewhat duochrome-y polishes.  I'll have to give it a shot with regular polish and see how it goes. 
 
 
Hope you guys enjoyed this one and a huge thanks to Jeanette for being my inspiration!
 
Happy Polishing Loves!
