Happy Birthday Marble with... CDBNails!

36 comments

Hiya guys! Even though I am not over my allergies and am having a hard time with my eyes nothing keeps me away from polishing! Especially when it's for a special occasion. Today is my best friend Cheyenne's (from CDBNails) birthday and to celebrate we had to do bestie twin nails again! It's become sort of tradition now to do a marble so we figured we'd throw that in with some accent art.

I really love the way this turned out, it's a huge improvement over the variation we came up with last year. I have to admit the watermarble took me way longer than it probably should have. I think I did three attempts before I finally got it how I liked it. Well worth the effort though.

The polishes I used for this marble were the must-have 110 Degrees and On the List by Pipe Dream Polish. My white polish of choice is always from Salon Perfect and it's called Sugar Cube. The accent nail is done completely with acrylic paint and my detail brush from Whats Up Nails. And my topcoat of choice for this design is my ever trusty Seche Vite.

As you guys know, I do my watermarbles with the classic dipping in water method. I have to try out the decal method though because last night was a nightmare trying to do this. This marble was the result after three failed attempts and about two hours wasted. Now you see why I don't record my marbles, they are almost always a nightmare to try and complete.

But I am definitely glad I stuck to it because the end result was totally worth it. Cheyenne is a very dear friend of mine who has been an infinite source of inspiration and support. Happy birthday my sister from another mister, may your day be full of joy and happiness.

Catch you guys tomorrow!
