Bright Water Marble Mani with OPI and Sinful Colors

So I'm still sick, which means another bright mani for cheering up. This time I decided to give water marbling another chance (I've never had much luck with it, I don't normally have the patience needed) and lo and behold I was successful! I wasn't going for any particular coherency with my design, but love the pattern that ended up on my ring finger the most. :)

As you can see in my Instagram pic for this mani, I chose these colours based on this month's Real Simple magazine cover because they really popped for me. Unfortunately, Fly turned out a lot more blue and less turquoise than I remember, so my colour matching wasn't perfect. :(

Two-Toned Leopard Print Stamping Mani with China Glaze's Under the Boardwalk!

Ahhhh, it's been so long!! My apologies to anyone who noticed me missing, I was away on vacation and when I got back I got hit by a cold. :( I'm still actually pretty sick, but while sitting on the couch feeling blah today I decided painting my nails my cheer me up and speed up the healing process a bit (self-care!). So I pulled out my stamps and played around on my nails. The design I ended up with isn't my favourite, but the bright pink sure did brighten my day. What do you think?
