Blue Braided Mani

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Morning all and happy Wednesday! Who is happy that we are already half way thru the work week!?! I think my mind is still in vacation mode since I have been feeling uninspired lately. I decided that I haven't done a braid mani in a long time so I would bring it out of the vault and whip one up.


Color Club: Blue Heaven and Take me To Your Chateau
L'oreal: Jet set to Paris


I totally forgot how easy these braid mani's are and you end up with a gorgeous look! Also this L'oreal blue is plain out gorgeous, I almost never wear blue but I LOVE this one. Hope you all enjoy your hump day!!

Blue Fishtail/Braid Nails

I have a fun new nail art design to share today. The tutorial for how to do this design can be found at Lucy's Stash. The fistail/braid design has been shown around some blogs and Pinterest so I decided to try it out. It is a pretty easy design as well.
Base coat is Color Club: Take me to Your Chateau. The colors for the braid is Color Club: Otherworldy, Take me to Your Chateau, Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep, and Glitter Gal: Silver 3D Holo. Once completed I used Out the Door for Top Coat.
This design was so easy I was able to do it on both hands, and I may even like the left hand better :) I was also able to use two of my new polishes again, Take me to Your Chateau is the perfect light blue creme! You could easily get away with one thicker coat and it dries so fast! I decided to put Glitter Gal over Silver Sweep to add the holo effect that Otherworldy has, but it Otherworldy doesn't show much of the holo glitters, I am excited to see how it will look on its own.
Have you tried this nail art yet? What do you think of it?

Gradients

Today I have the Gradient that I did for my review for Into the Blue.
Sorry for the blurriness
For the green gradients I used China Glaze: Re-fresh Mint and Zoya: Wednesday. Than for the blue gradients I used China Glaze: Shower Together and Color Club: Take me to Your Chateau. Top coat of Out the Door.
I love the pastel colors and green and blue together so cute! Into the Blue by Pretty Polish looked great over it as well, make sure to check out that post here.

Blue Water Marble

This is by far my best water marble to date, love the shapes I was able to create and it turned out great on both hands! It is always so hard for me to get my left hand good, being left handed, but I got it this time :D

To start I did 3 coats of Wet n Wild Megalast: Break the Ice, I didn't use plain white cause last time it showed thru in spots and I hated it. For my marbling colors I did. China Glaze: Shower Together, Blue Iguana, and Studio M: Whose that Girl. Top coat of Out the Door. It is actually hard to see the three colors cause Blue Iguana is Glittery but blends in with Shower Together. Next time I will have to remember to change the order so it is separated from Shower Together.
I choose blue colors because its my Sisters prom tomorrow and that is the color of her dress! I wish she was letting me do this on her nail,  but of course she wants a french mani done with her fake nails :P Instead of using the petroleum jelly like last time I used tape and defiantly will continue with this method.
When you water marble do you start with your good hand first? I think next time I will be switching it up.
