Purple Crumpet Spring Challenge - Spring Stripes

Oops, I didn't get this blogged yesterday! I thought I had it scheduled, sorry! Anyway, I was inspired by Colette at My Simple Little Pleasures again for this one. She posted a bumblebee watermarble tutorial, and I thought I'd give it a go, but with different colours. And it actually worked! Not as awesome or neat as Colette's version of course, but I was happy with the result. I used Models Own polishes for this: Pink Blush and Lemon Meringue. They worked really well, didn't dry too quickly and the colours stayed vibrant. I'll definitely be looking at more Models Own with watermarbling in mind.

If you watch Colette's tutorial you'll see that to get this design you use several drops of the first colour (yellow in this case) and then 2 or 3 of the second colour (pink) when making your bulls eye. On the pointer finger I decided to do it the other way around and I got these really thin stripes. I rocked it as an accent nail but it wasn't intentional, and I prefer it the other way around. The day I wore this I had to take my son to a speech therapy appointment and the lady couldn't stop looking at them! She said she was going to try it so I bet she'll be cursing me next time we go! Watermarbling is HARD!
