Guest Post Saturday! Smashley Sparkles with an amazing green water marble!

It's Guest Post Saturday again!! I have quite the treat for you today! Ashley from Smashley Sparkles is one of the best at water marbling that I have ever seen. She does one every Wednesday on her blog and I am always in awe at how good she is. I was so happy when she agreed to do one for this guest post, and even happier when she made it all green!! *grin* I highly recommend you check out and follow her if you don't already, you will not be disappointed! 

Hello fellow Polish Addicts!  I am so happy to bring you this very special guest post today.  When Ashley asked me if I would be interested in doing one of these, I said "HECK YES!"  No one has asked me to guest post for them before, and I'm excited for my first one to be on a good friend's blog.

I didn't have to think very hard to come up with my mani for this post... I know that Ashley is an avid green polish lover (as do most people who know her, I think!) and she also often tells me how much she loves the water marbles that I do.  So I almost immediately decided to do an all green water marble!  This was my first monochromatic water marble, and I am really happy with how it turned out.

It took me a few tries to find greens that were complementary with each other and also spread in the water.  I ended up using 4 different polishes.  I prepped my nails with base coat and then one coat of China Glaze Paper Chasing.  I built my bulls-eye withOPI Mermaid's TearsChina Glaze Paper ChasingOzotic 507, and China Glaze Glittering Garland.

I did a sort of stripey pattern, following the method show in Colette's (My Simple Little Pleasures) Bumble Bee tutorial.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and thank you so much to my dear friend Ashley for inviting me to be here!


  1. I still have yet to try water marbling, but I think I may try my hand at his combo when I do. I have both ChG polishes & Sinful's version of Mermaid's Tears (which will hopefully work for water marbling), so once I get the the Ozotic dupe from OPI's Spider Man collection, which I was planning on doing, I should be able to give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. super awesome - this looks amazing x
