Happy Thanksgiving!!!

To those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving today, I want to wish you a very happy one! I am thankful to have the day off from work and to spend it with my family. I'm thankful for my family and friends who are always there for me, to support and encourage me or knock some sense into me when I need it. I will try to refrain from making this a sappy post of all the things I'm thankful for and instead show you the manicure I'm wearing today. Yes, this is one of those rare occasions when what is on the blog is actually what is on my nails...


I started out the manicure with a base of Barielle Gotta Have Fate, a lovely coral orange cream. If I hadn't been so excited to start applying the water marble, I would have remember to take new swatch photos of it, but maybe next time...


For the water marble itself I used four Barielle shades in Unraveled RustGotta Have FateGreenwich Village at Dawn and Sunshine. The colors worked really well together and I'm beyond thrilled with how this turned out...


I wanted to use Barielle shades this Thanksgiving to remind me all the things I have to be thankful for. Barielle along with so many other business and people were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and are now slowly recovering. Looking at my nails today reminds me that I'm thankful to have a roof over my head, warm water and electricity. The things we often take for granted until they are gone. I'm also thankful that my family in NY whose homes and cars were damaged are themselves safe and sound...



I love adding little accents such as dots to my water marbles and I couldn't resist doing it again. I added metallic gold and orange dots using KleanColor Metallic Yellow and Metallic Orange. They added just the right amount of sparkle and made it special...


Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
What are you thankful for?

Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)

  1. Wow, this is an AWESOME water marble! You should do a tutorial on how you get those designs *hint, hint*. Did you pull "out" from the circle of polish instead of pulling in? Does that make sense?
