Summer Challenge--Pink and Blue

Hi Readers!  Now don't lie but tell me what's the first thing you think of when you see or hear pink and blue? For me it's babies.  Yep babies.  I see or pink and blue and BAM my mind goes to babies.  So with the challenge today being pink and blue I really wanted to think outside the box.  I'm a huge blue fan but pink not so much.  I'd just done and tape mani so I said hmmmm what haven't you done in a while.  NEEDLE MARBLE!  Yep needle marble it is Readers with pink and blue
This one's pretty easy and straight forward.  I used a base of OPI Alpine White then used Cult Nails Time Traveler and Jesse's Girl Breathless for the needle marbling
I actually love how the ring finger turned out best BUT I actually re-did it lol!  I think I like it better using small dots instead of large ones like I did with the other fingers
Have you needle marbled yet Readers?  I was doing this before I got into stamping!  So easy and it looks really cool.  The key is wet polish, do one finger at a time AND don't use fast drying polishes!
I think this could look really cool using red, white and blue for the upcoming 4th of July.  We'll see if I give it a whirl!


Lots of ladies doing the Summer Challenge, be sure to check them out!

  5. Oh I'm so jealous, your needle marbling worked out so well... I tried it a week or so ago and it was an epic fail... I think I used too big of dots. I will definitely have to give it another try.

    1. Kelsie I like the smaller dots better! I had too big of dots on the ring finger then took it off and went smaller and looks a zillion times better! Try smaller dots I bet you'll like it!
