Water marble!

I made a second attempt at making you guys a tutorial video!

This time, the camera was much better… I’m not sure the educational part was as good since it was my first time water marbling, but hopefully you’ll learn something, even if its how not to? 🙂

The first try was not a success, so I learned something myself… but my second time came out pretty cool! Next time I should be able to do it for a real manicure.

(The polishes I use here are hard candy sky, entity brown plum, color club vintage couture, eyeko pastel, zoya shimmer, and maybelline pink halo.)

3 Baby Pinks

I wanted to try 2 other baby pinks that seemed a lot like Color Club Vintage Couture. So I got Nubar’s Hotel Baby Pink and their Baby Pink.

Sorry about the horrible quality of swatches I get at night, I have to learn how to handle the lighting in here!

This is Color Club Vintage Couture on the left 2 and Nubar Hotel Baby Pink on the right two:

I can’t tell them apart at all. If I look really really closely, the Vintage Couture looks a tiny bit pinker and the Nubar a tiny bit whiter, but its not noticeable at all. You could walk around with these 2 different colors and no one would be able to tell!

Then on my middle two fingers, I tried the Nubar Baby Pink, which is a little more of a peach-ish tone. I still left the Vintage Couture on the pinky and the Hotel Baby Pink on the index finger.

The more I tried to correct the light in this picture, the more it made them look the same, so I just left this one as-is, so you can at least see the color difference…

What do you girls do when you swatch at night? How do you handle the lighting and your camera throwing off the colors?

Color Club – Vintage Couture

I’m so excited to find a baby pink that looks good on my skin tone! Color Club Vintage Couture!

I guess although I love the brighter pinks, they just don’t look as good on me as these grayer baby pinks do. This one is definitely a keeper for me.

I got my new XL stamping plate today, and some of the other ones that the Chez Delaney store had, so I’m going to use one today.
