Happy Easter


It's Thursday, and finally posting my MIM card!
Lizzie showed us how to use nail polish to create 
a marbling technique. The effects are never the same,
but can be drop dead gorgeous, after the initial learning mistakes.

Just look at what color combos can produce:


These are what I call 'successes'.
Honestly had to toss about 4 that I call practice.


I read from another blogger that the polish sometimes settled to the bottom, 
or formed a glaze on the top. I guess it just depends on the polish.
Sometimes, moving the bottle quickly back and forth, creates
lines that are marbled looking. Like I said, hard to stop seeing
what the next surprise will be!
I chose the softest 'Eastery Egg' result for the background of my card.


A couple of pinks, a coral and a platinum  made this happy accident.
Thanks to Lizzie, I found this technique addicting! Spent a happy 
afternoon trying all colors I had. Mostly colors I keep on hand
for mani pedi days with the granddaughters!

  2. Yes, I agree...definitely no two the same and some turn out not so nice. My polish sank to the bottom so, I lost that marblizing effect...came out more like blobs. And that was was fresh polish. Maybe I should have bought the $12 bottles. I don't wear polish (hate it) so buying a few bottles was just for this challenge. 😝
