Marble vs. Saran Wrap ♥

Hello lovelies!

How was your weekend? ♥

I've spent mine relaxing and having a nice time home. The week had me so exhausted that I simply needed to take the weekend off and pretty much sleep it out. Sounds more extreme than it is, so don't be alarmed. I just needed the weekend badly. I'm still super hyped about school things, and it actually seems that everything is working out quite nicely even though few days ago I was sure things would collapse hard. I will have a super busy spring. so if I sometimes go off radar, I'm just working for school. But I will always come back for you. Or, for me, as I do love the blogging as a way to vent my thoughts - because I can think the lovely positive things in life when I write here.

Like today, when I have a couple of nail art designs to show you. Here I am trying two techniques that are both fairly new to me.

First up is a blue water marble - first water marble in a super long time actually. I was a bit scared to try that out as last ones had been such a fail, but I found great tips for doing it so I decided to give it a try. And it went okay. I still need to practice a lot to master the water marble, but now I have an idea what to do.

The polishes I used for the mani were by China Glaze: White On White (the base under the marbling), One Track Mind, Capacity To See Beyond and Five Rules. The rhinestones are from Born Pretty Store.

I really quite liked wearing the marble after such a long time, and I am confident I will be trying this again pretty soon. And then, I try not to dent the nails like I did here. I'll report back once I have the time to try this.

The other new thing I was trying this month was the saran wrap technique. For those who don't know, it's the technique where you use plastic wrap to create texture on your nails. It's very easy, and actually looks quite cool.

The polishes I used for these, were by China Glaze: Feel The Breeze, Escaping Reality and Float On. The black rhinestones are from Born Pretty Store.

I really loved the texture this technique gives, so I'm sure this is also something I will be doing more this spring. I think this would look amazing with green shades, so I think I will try that once I'm done with Valentine's Day nails next month.

So what do you guys think about these designs? Have you tried these techniques? Let me know in the comments below!

Now, I'm going to do my nails and catch up with my favorite series. And maybe read the latest Cosmopolitan (Finland) where I was lucky to be featured in with one photo. Thank you guys, that rocks! With that in mind, I will be able to pull through this week and then it's already February. So cool. I really can't wait for it to be spring already, I have so many outfit ideas for warmer weather.

Have a great start for the new week ♥

  1. I love them. Water marble seems way too complicated but I really do love how the plastic technique turned out!

    1. Thank you! Water marble can be such an opinion divider, whether it's about how it looks or about creating it. I personally like it, although as a technique it is a bit complicated and way messy (or maybe that's just me). :) ♥

  2. The marble one looks great. It's such a fun design. I did it once before and really want to do it on my nails again.
