I have the death, so look at these pretty tests...

I am working on a stamped gradient right now. Unfortunately, I seem to have caught a little bug. In other words, I'm sick as a dog, and can barely stay awake to crop pictures and write. I'm planning to have the tutorial up tomorrow, if all goes well. Until then, look  at these lovely marbled tests I did.

Sinful Colors polishes- Dream On (purple), Love Nails (blue), and Happy Ending (green), plus a bit of Art Deco white. These were applied in lines then swirled together.

I was stunned at how well this came out. In person, it looks almost like the inside of a shell, with the nacreous Mother of Pearl lining swirled inside. There is so much shimmer in these that getting a good photo was difficult, as you can see by the photo on the right.

Same colors again, minus the white. Harder to see, and harder to photograph. Still, it's sweet. I like them!

So yea, I'm going to bed now.


  1. feel better sweets, those marble blobs are perty!

  2. Haha, what Jen said! Those ARE gorgeous.

  3. So pretty! Hope you recover quickly--death is no fun!

  4. Jen- thanks! I could do these on my nails, if I had the time to let them dry. :D

    Nicole- thanks! I was surprised how well they came out! Apparently a mix of creme and shimmer blend well. :D

    KarenD- aww, thank you! I think I'm starting to feel a bit better, at least some of the day.
