Glam Polish Margaritaville: Water Marbling Take Two!

Heya Guys!

It has been really sunny and almost warm outside the past few day, and it has sent me flying into full spring fever mode! I have been going outside in nothing but a light jacket, even if it isn't quite warm enough yet, wearing shoes, despite the melting snow everywhere, and of course, putting fun bright eye popping colours on my nails! Today's mani I want to share with you, is no exception.







Let me just start by saying, I love everything about this mani, from the bright eye popping colours, to the fun glitters,  even the far from perfect water marble I did! Although, as this is my second attempt, I can already see a major improvement from the last one

 I used Glam Polish Margaritaville for my pointer, ring and thumb (not shown). As you can see, it is almost  a neon, coral like orange shade, with gorgeous purple, pink and yellow matte glitters in it. It applies amazing, and barely needs any manipulation to get onto the nail. I do recommend turning the bottle upside down before application however, since the large pink hex glitters do settle to the bottom.  I applied two coats of this wonderfully gorgeous polish, (which is sadly a newly discontinued shade, so if you see it, make sure to grab it up!) over Where Did Suzi's Mango? by OPI. Which is a similar orange/coral creme from their new OPI Brazil collection.

To make the colours really pop on the gradient and water marble, I used a white base of My Boyfriend Scales Walls by OPI. Then, using the same 4 colours for both accent nails, I applied a gradient to my pinky, and a water marble to my middle finger. The polishes used for the accent nails were I Just Can't Copa-Cabana by OPI (yellow) Where Did Suzi's Mango? by OPI (orange) Micky by Zoya (pink) and Grape Pop by China Glaze (purple) I then added a bit of Fairy Dust by China Glaze to make it sparkle. It is all topped off with my trusty HK Girl top coat.

I really think that this entire look just screams sunshine, and warmer weather. With my spring frenzy currently in full swing, I feel like I could wear this forever! Are any of you craving the warmer weather too? Have you done any spring/summer nails to reflect your need for spring to hurry up and get here? Let me know in the comments! Till next time Kittens! <3
