Water Marble with A England Guinevere.

Someone mentioned something a few weeks ago that really stuck with me. They said that a certain color of polish was their palette cleanser and I immediately related to that.  Grey cremes were my palette cleanser.   It was what I went to when I had had enough of the glitter and the holo.  I love grey creme! And then I met Guinevere.  My friend, Emily, swapped her with me, and I immediately fell in love. I have already posted about her and haven't even had her for a month yet!  She is a beautiful dusty grey lavender creme. It is just what I need when I have had an overdose of glitter!
Of course, the need for a palette cleanser doesn't last long.  Just ask anyone who eats sushi and uses the ginger in between bites.  I quickly decided that I needed to make Guinevere more interesting, so I water marbled her!  I used SH White, Zoya Kelly, and Guinevere on my first hand.
Water marbling is what got me into nail polish and blogging in the first place. I was looking for nail art and stumbled across My Simple Little Pleasures' YouTube videos on water marbling.  I watched her tutorials for HOURS.  I was so hooked! To check them out, click HERE.
Sometimes, I have too many ideas in my head for the same polishes, so I will do my other hand differently.  This time, I did my left hand with just Guinevere and white.
Thumbs are never in my pictures, but when it comes to water marbling, every nail is different! Here is my thumb. :o)
 And another close-up of two of my fingers... I am sad to say that this manicure lasted less than 24 hours. I went plumbing the next day for the first time in 3 years, and the polish all peeled off. I am glad o say though, that I didn't lose any nails!

 Do you have a palette cleanser? And if so, is it a type of polish or is it a color? What are your thoughts on water marbling?

Water marbling got me hooked too! Along w/your blog ;-) I love water marbling because it's fun & the results are stunning and different every time. I just got polish-addicted in mid-Feb, so I haven't had need of a palette cleanser...I'm still having too much fun! :-D
