Happy Friday! Counting today, I only have three more work days until vacation! I do want to go ahead and let everyone know that there will be a bit of radio silence as I will be on vacation the next two weeks, but I should be back with posts in late September or early October at the latest. I will still be keeping up with the #WNAC2015 prompts on Instagram, but won't blog about them until after the fact. I also have some more exciting news: I have been invited to join the Twinsie Tuesday group! Starting in October, I will now be posting weekly with the ladies of Twinsie Tuesday.
And now on to what you came here for - the mani! This week's #WNAC2015 prompt is dry marble. I have only done one semi-successful dry marble, and it was actually part of my Gator Nails for last year's game against Kentucky. This time I used two colors from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line: Combustealable and Too Haute.
For this mani, I started with a base of Too Haute, followed by a coat of Seche Vite. I then painted half the nail using Combustealable and the other half Too Haute, and swirled them together using a dotting tool. I really love how this turned out! It sort of has fan brush technique look to it. I really think have the base color already on the nail really helped so I wasn't scraping polish off with bare nail underneath, which has been my problem in the past.
Overall, this was a super easy mani and I love this look! I really want to try this with my orange and blue polishes since I really don't think an orange and blue gradient would look good and this could be an easy alternative. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I should have at least one post next week before I go on vacation!
