Recently, I watched a video tutorial by Sammy at The Nailasaurus. In her video, Sammy recreated a beautiful marble effect manicure. She did a fantastic job using her own method. The tutorial was simple, and she made it look so easy to do. Sooooo, why couldn't I do it?!? Ok, in all honesty, I have a hard time following instructions. I always want to go off the beaten path. For this reason I can't do simple things like cook, since it requires you to follow a recipe or at least repeat what you did the last time. For me, most wins are a one time only, because I don't follow instructions.
I need to work on that...
Anyway, although I didn't recreate Sammy's look, I did come up with my own (probably one time only) marble look mani. I think it turned out pretty nice, but when I attempted to do the other hand, my one time only thing kicked in and it turned out a complete mess. No photo of that. I don't want to destroy my reputation and have you guys thinking I need to go back to kindergarten (I'm still searching for kindergarten art classes for adults. If you hear of one in the DC area, let me know.)
I think I'll give this marble thing another try...one day.
Now, I'm going to go find another tutorial to ruin.
