I just had to follow up last night’s Itty Bitty Burgers with a Fingernail Friday to keep the fun going! I know I skipped a few weeks, but it’s for good reason: after months of doing my nails twice a week, the novelty wore off. I went and got a shellac manicure which lasted two weeks, then I was given a challenge. My students and friends started asking me when I was going to try that “water marble thing”.
Water marble is this seemingly simple concept: drip nail polish onto distilled water in a cup, marble with a toothpick, dip nails in and voila! Cool marbled nails.
Here’s a video of the concept:
I tried it time and time again, and all I got was a mess. But then I got motivated, and took about two hours on a snowy Friday night to actually get it right. And it was good!
Another thing I’ve really picked up is crocheting. My tutorial for a super-bulky scarf was extremely popular, so I started challenging myself to make amigurumi, or cute crocheted stuffed animals. Or rather, tiny stuffed crocheted food.
And, just for fun, a silly picture I found that made me laugh ridiculously hard because, to be honest, I’m a crazy cat lady.
Have a great weekend!
