It’s my birthday and Independence Day! This water marble MANicure is a present from my Husband, Mr. FLBN, who actually did my nails! Mr. FLBN, an artist & hobby painter himself, was watching a youtube video of guitars being water marbled in 80’s colors and wanted to give it a try in red, white & blue. I have the greatest husband ever! Seriously.
Cleanup took over 2 hours, you can see why!
Took a mulligan on my index finger

I heart nail art and polish! If only I could remind myself of that, I started biting my nails again and my thumb took the hit. I’ve been biting my nails since I was a toddler and it’s a life long habit I’m trying to break. I think bringing a nail file with me at all times might help.

I have a stash list to reference so I don’t buy duplicates. However, I was certain I knew my inventory which is how I ended up with 2 bottles of Zoya’s Julieanne. 🙂 I smudged my purple paint then took out my stamps and slapped on some white. I figure if I mess up, and I do often, why should I scrap it? I’ll just chalk it up to practice.
Stamping kicked my butt however, the dots were salvageable so I added some silver holo to the tips to cover my flaws. Glitter has always been my autocorrect and I’m thankful for it!
