Nail-aween Nail Art Challenge - Day 1: Water Marble

I LOVE Halloween!  When I found this challenge hosted by Sassy Nails, I couldn't resist, especially since this challenge is done at your own pace!  It's perfect for a full-time working mom of 2 young boyos, who also likes to read & knit & sew!

As you can see, today is Day 1, and I actually did a water marble!  Only bummer is that I can't wear it to work tomorrow since we've got an audit going, and I have some other professional-like things to do. Boo! 

I used all Sinful Colors for this one:
L to R: Clementine, Black on Black, Innocent, Amethyst

I painted on a coat of white (Sinful Colors "Snow Me White), and went to town:

I love the colors in this!  I wanted to use a darker green, but it wasn't working in the water marbling wouldn't spread and it dried too fast :-(  My ring finger is just purple & green marble topped with my own little Halloween franken.  Overall, I'm happy with this one, except for the thumb, which I accidentally bumped :-/

These are the other cool peeps participating in the challenge.  Check 'em out!


  1. This challenge looks fun! Love your marbling.

  2. Omg! So much awesome!!! Love the colours, I've never used more than three in marbling but this inspires me to try more!

  3. You did an amazing marbling job! Wow I love all the colors that you used!

  4. That's to bad that you couldn't wear this to work. It is so beautiful. :-)

  5. Beautiful water marble! I really like it :)

  6. This color combo is amazing! Your water marble turned out amazing - I'm a little, make that a lot, jealous!
