Mish Mash Challenge: Purple

Hi cupcakes!

So it's been a long while since I've joined a challenge... the last one I think was around Christmastime last year. The reason I never join challenges is because I don't always have a lot of time on my hands and I would hate to start a challenge and not finish it! BUT, I've finally joined a new one called the Mish Mash Challenge hosted by Kimber's Lacquer Korner. I joined because it only posts once a week and I figure I can keep up with that... hopefully ;) 

Anyways! Today is the kick off of the Mish Mash Challenge and the theme is purple. I knew immediately I wanted to incorporate Color Club Eternal Beauty, a purple holographic polish, because it's been one of my favorite polishes ever since I bought it! I also figured it was time to give water marbling another go, I heard somewhere around the polish community that the Color Club Halo Hues are really good for water marbling so hey, why not right? 

Alright, to start off this mani I did a base of Maybelline Color Show  Iced Queen on my thumb, middle, and ring finger. Then I used Maybelline Color Show Iced Queen and Color Club Eternal Beauty for the water marble on those fingers. On my pointer and pinky I just did two coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty. Seal it all in with some Poshe top coat and we're finished! 







yumm holo love!


These were super cool out in the sunshine I still get so amazed every time I see the Halo Hues outside in the sun because they are really quite stunning! Because both polishes were so good for marbling I ended up with really skinny lines I think it almost looks like a zebra print of sorts! And I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth water marbling went this time so expect to see some more in the future ;) 

Question for you guys: I've been thinking about starting some video tutorials.... not that I know how lol! But would anyone be interested in seeing a tutorial for a water marble like this?

Don't forget to check out all the ladies participating in the Inlinkz below! And if you want to join too then feel free to add your blog! 

Thanks guys :)

  14. Hi, Kristine!!!! So happy you joined the challenge!

    You did Eternal Beauty proud. This is outside-the-box, and outstanding.

    While you're reminded of zebra lines, I'm seeing leaves, shoots, bamboo...kind of an Asian vibe. Very cool how it's open to interpretation. I say this is one fabulous water marble!

    As for tutorials, I vote YES!!!! Yes, please!!!! :)

    Happy weekend, Kristine!
