The One With the Marbling for Twinsie Tuesday

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  Can you believe it is March 1st?!  Where has this year gone already!?  Soon it will be summer, then fall, and back to winter.  I'm jumping too far ahead of myself.

For now it is Tuesday which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday.  This weeks theme is marbling, which honestly I wasn't angry about.  If you've been a long time follower of The Little Canvas, then you would know how much I hated marbling anything.  Water marble was my arch nemesis  I never could get it to work, I hated attempting it, and I thought it was a huge waste of polish.

In the past few months though, I decided to reattempt it.  Practice makes perfect, right?  Well it slowly is for me.  And I may or may not be loving water marble!

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Super Cute in Pink
  • OPI - My Pal Joey
  • OPI - This Crown Needs a Gown
  • OPI - In True Stefani Fashion
  • INM - Northern Lights
My oh my how lovely are these polishes from OPI.  Also, I'm kind of loving that my collection is growing so large that I'm starting to be able to use one brand for one manicure.  Amanda from Fashion Footing always does this and I thought she was crazy, but there's something satisfying about being able to use one brand.  Seriously, this polish collection thing is a huge addiction.

Anyways, the polishes from the Hello Kitty collection are kind of perfect.  My Pal Joey is a gorgeous cobalt blue shade which many have said is a dupe to the original Sally Hansen Pacific Blue.  I honestly can't tell you if this is true or not because I'm probably the only nail blogger who does not own Pacific Blue.  I know, I'm awful.  Regardless, My Pal Joey covers completely in two coats.  I added a top coat of INM Northern Lights because I couldn't resist.  I'm thrilled I did.

The marble came out rather well too.  Super Cute in Pink sadly didn't spread as nicely as My Pal Joey because it was more of a crelly formula.  I have to swatch it still, but I have a feeling that it would take about 2-3 coats to be full coverage.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Think I'm getting better at this whole marbling thing??
