Experimental Rocket by Varnish Vixen

One thing I love about Etsy is the fact that I can find great indie nail polishes that become one of my favorites which is exactly what happened with Experimental Rocket by Varnish Vixen. However the sad news is that I can no longer find Varnish Vixen's Etsy page where she used to sell Experimental Rocket along with other nail polishes as well. This is extremely sad because I absolutely love Experimental Rocket and I think it is a great base coat for when you are doing galaxy nails because of the black holographic aspect of the polish.

Pictures just don't seem to do this nail polish justice! And let me tell you, it always looks a lot cooler in the sunlight!

Water Marble: Zoya "Song" & Pure Ice "Silver Mercedes"

My first statement with this post must be "For once water marbling worked for me!" There has been a long, long period of water marbling absolutely hating me and never wanting to work on more than 1 nail. So this time I was glad it worked! It might just be the temperature of the room that I was in but I've been using a room temperature bottle of water and a Dixie bathroom cup. I had three nail polishes picked out but one didn't seem to want to cooperate so I decided to just go with "Song" by Zoya and "Silver Mercedes" by Pure Ice. I don't feel like this is one of my best water marble designs that I've done so far in my nail polish life but I do hope to learn more designs and get better!
