OPI Gliterally the Best Silver Ever and some past water marbles

Today I chose to use one of the ULTA OPI summer collection exclusives. This one is called Glitterally the Best Silver Ever.
This is a very unique polish in my collection. I have heard that the Nicole by OPI Gossip Girl collection pretty much has identical shades to the ULTA OPI Summer collection, but I don't own any of them. This is three coats. The base is a really sheer silver so I needed three to completely cover up the nail. This was VERY hard to photograph without just looking gray. The photos don't do it justice. I have a feeling that I will be using foil and acetone to remove this one. Every time I use glitters, no matter how much I clean up, I always end up with random pieces of glitter on my hands.
No flash

A reader asked if I have ever tried water marbling. I have twice and unfortunately both times were before I had a decent camera, so these are iPhone pictures.

First attempt MESSY MESSY MESSY. The thumb was the one that turned out the best, and of course you can barely see it.

I did this one when the Steelers went to the Superbowl. This one was amazing and I didn't want to take it off. My second attempt was much better than the first. Perhaps when I have more time, I'll work on perfecting it.

I am thinking about doing a small giveaway when I reach 50 followers *hint hint*. It won't be anything too lavish, since I am unemployed and spend more money than I probably should on nail polish. I'll figure out what it will be when I get closer to that number of followers, so refer your friends!
