Marble & French Mani

Hello lovelies! How are you today? ♥ I've just today realized it's already July, and that I haven't gotten enough summer looks to the blog. I will try to start correcting that tomorrow by having my hubby take some outfit photos of the daily office look (which you always can see on Instagram even if they don't make it to the blog all the time), taken that it's not storming outside or anything the whole day.

Today, I thought it would be fun to share some nail art before getting back to the travel posts - so that there would be enough content for everyone, even for those who don't care about F1 that much. So below, you can see the designs I have for you this time:

marble mani

The first design is this cute marble stone kind of mani, done with water spotting technique. For those who are new to nail art, water spotting means a technique where you start off like you would with a water marbling - have filtered water in a cup, add drops of nail polish on top. You use only one color, and try to fill up the water surface with the polish. Then, before the polish dries up, you make it rip with any spray liquid that has alcohol in it. The alcohol makes the polish "rip", causing these patterns you see here. The more generous you are with the spray, the more sparse the design becomes. When you get the perfect pattern, just dip the nail in like you would with the water marble.

For this, I did one layer of black design and then a layer of gold pattern over the turquoise polish.

I really loved these nails, making them was so fun even though it is pretty messy - like with all designs that include having water in the making.

The polishes I used for these nails were Rimmel London Roll In The Grass, China Glaze Liquid Leather and Goldie But Goodie.

The second mani is a super simple French mani with bit of a twist. Instead of making the tips traditional white, I switched them up to black.

I liked this simple design for a change, since I usually can go quite elaborate with my nails. This is something classy and simple, but also easy to modify for different outfits and occasions by changing up the colors.

For this design I used two polishes, and those were Essie Muchi Muchi and China Glaze Liquid Leather.

What do you think about these two designs? Let me know in the comments below!

That's all I have for you today, and in the next post, I will be talking more about our trip to Montreal. So stay tuned for that, and for more updates, follow me on social media (especially Instagram), where I post all sorts of things daily. Now, however, it's time for me to go get some sleep and rest for tomorrow's work day. See you soon with another post!

Have a fabulous day ♥
