Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Day 4 - Monochrome

Hello darlings!

How is everyone's week going so far? I've already pulled one all-nighter this week so I'm exhausted! BUT the nails must go on! I'm back again with day 4 of the Nail-Art-A-Go-Go challenge!

Let's get into the nails!

I told you I would water marble again! Not well, but I like how it looks!

Here's what I used:

I can't even tell you how many hours I spent watching My Simple Little Pleasures' youtube videos on how to water marble! I couldn't get any of the cool patterns to come out in the water so I just decided to go a messy swirly design. I love the outcome of these though!

These nails started off as 2 coats of OPI's Did You Hear About Van Gogh? and a layer of top coat. I then taped off my nails (my cuticles still look gross though), created my bullseye in the water and made crazy patterns! I then dipped each finger one by one.

Water marbles take so much time and effort but I always love the outcome, so I guess I can overlook it haha!

Here are the upcoming themes:

Thanks for reading everyone! I'll be back later with another nail art post for you all!
