Neon and Black Water Marble

I love neon polish more than any other polish! Even though it's winter I wanted to try out something I saw on youtube a while back. Sometimes when I can't sleep I watch nail polish related videos lol! I started watching water marbling videos and came across someone using neon colors with black. I don't remember the channel so I'm not sure who it was or I'd link to her video. I loved her design so much that I've been meaning to try it out for months now. I finally decided to just try it and see if I could get a good result. I'm excited to say that this is my best water marbling attempt so far! I love the colors I used and how they turned out. Of course there are some weird designs and a bit of bubbling here and there but I still love these nails. I really think I'm getting better at this :)

Red to Baby Pink Ombre

I've been seeing lots of pictures of ombre nails lately. I like how they look and that you get to use five different polishes at the same time :) So I decided to give it a try. I started off with red and ended up at light pink. I liked how it turned out a lot! My camera, on the other hand, got confused a bit.

This picture gives a good view of each color with the exception of the ring finger, which is more accurate in the photo below.

The flash on my camera makes the middle, ring, and pinky look slightly different from each other but the colors aren't that close. I posted this photo to show the true color of the ring finger, which looks a bit in between a bright red and dark pink.

Random Design

Hello!!! I haven't posted in a while :/ I've been thinking/ planning out some nail art series I might try out. I'm hoping to start on those very soon! But for today I just have a very random design to show you. I was playing around with some new polish from the China Glaze Electropop collection and ending up with the design below. I'm not a big animal print person but I decided to try some freehand leopard print. It turned out a little messy but it's good enough for a random design :)
