MANI MONDAY: End Of Summer Blues Smoosh Marble

by - September 03, 2018

Hey guys! Since it's the last long weekend of the summer and I would much rather be doing a little bit of relaxing outside than hanging out at my computer, I'm going to make this one a little bit brief. With the #CBBxManiMonday theme being The End Of Summer, I really had to wrack my brains to see what I wanted to put together... and then it hit me! The changing of seasons is always a little bit of a struggle for me - anxiety :( - but the end of summer always comes with its own sort of mourning for the long, hot days and balmy nights and the best way I could think of to communicate that was... blue!

I absolutely love a smoosh marble, which I feel is always cool and interesting when you choose the right colours. For the mani, I started with a one coat base of Pure Ice's Bikini, which is a really, really light ashy blue shade. For the smoosh, I added dots of Bikini, as well as Ceramic Glaze's Pure, Rimmel's Bestival Blue, and essence's Royal Blue. I was careful not too add too much of the white or the deepest blue so that they didn't take over the mani and I got a good blend of all four blue shades. I smooshed it directly onto the nails several times until I got the blend that I wanted and then cleaned up first with a dotting tool to remove excess polish and then a clean up brush with acetone. To finish, I added a coat of China Glaze's Fairy Dust and a nice thick coat of essence Gel Top Coat and voila!

Are you guys feeling the end of summer blues too?
