Trying out a new, smaller watermark. What do you guys think?

Hello! I know I haven’t posted since my last twin post, but things got crazy again just as I thought they were settling down, but I promise that they’re for sure settling down this time.

For this month’s twin post, I was paired up with Jessica of Be Happy and Buy Polish, and we got chosen to do pastels.

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, so I did a very special mani for a very special little girl today.

I do have to make it known that this is not my story, but it is one near and dear to my heart. (I have gotten the mother’s permission to tell this story.)

MSMD Monday: Monochrome Mix ‘n’ Match

Hey guys! I’m back for another MSMD Monday post, and this time I was inspired by two lovely ladies on YouTube! I first saw a variation of this look on cutepolish’s channel, and then I saw it on Dearnatural62’s channel.

While neither look is at all similar to mine, that’s the point. The point is to do each nail in your own personal style, but the connection is in the colors: Use only black and white. So, I did.

Abstract Challenge Day 12: Water Marble

Point proven. Last minute again.

Okay, today, I was lazy. So instead of marbling all my hands, I did a marbled accent nail.

Painted all my fingers with Wet N Wild French White Crème, marbled with Zoya Pippa and Nina on the accent nail, painted the rest of my nails with just Pippa.

This mani proved to me I hate yellow on its own.

Next time on this challenge: Combo of two, and three more to go!

Black & White Challenge Day 9: Water Marble

Right hand action today because I hadn’t had time to do my left hand.

For today I had to do water marbling. I did a bit of a different technique this time, and it worked out really well.

I started with two coats of Wet N Wild French White Crème, then one coat of my Try it on Tuesday polish, Piggy Polish Frosty, which is a sheer shimmery white for some shine. I wanted to use Frosty on its own, but it’s much too sheer for that.

I then marbled with Shades of the Season Black and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Invisible, with a 3:1 ratio of black to clear. I marbled with black and clear instead of black and white because that way I didn’t have to worry about the black going gray when marbled with the white.

Tomorrow is stripes from the Abstract Challenge, and then Thursday is the last Black and White Challenge post, a mani of my choice.
