This is one of the new flake polishes from the Finger Paints Special Effects collection. This swatch is Twisted. It is my favorite because it looks like rainbows. I have three coats over black because I wanted it to be extra intense. Depending on how the sun catches it, the flakes sometimes looks completely green. They are available at Sally Beauty Supply for a limited time starting in January. I begged the associate to get them for me and she did.=]

I love marbling on nails. It's quick to do and you can't really mess it up. This is dry marbling, not water marbling, mind you! For these I painted a base of a pearly white by Sinful Colors called Tokyo Pearl. Then I put a blob of Zoya Ivanka near the cuticle, and then blobbed on Zoya Isla across the tips. Take a toothpick, needle, or marbling tool and make swirls through the polish.Clean any off that spills onto the sides. Wait a few minutes, put on a quick dry topcoat, and you are done!

So I tried my hand stamping again. I have a hard time with the full nail designs but most people don't notice my mistakes. I started with a white cream. Then I layered Essie Shine of the Times. It adds a subtle orange and green sparkle which is hard to see in photos. I used Kleancolor black for stamping and a Bundle Monster plate from their first set.
