NOTD: Red, Gold & White Christmas Water Marble + Tutorial

I actually meant to get this up yesterday, and didn't get around to it.  I had an excellent Christmas Eve as well as Christmas Day - my mom is really great at paying attention during the year when I mention liking something, then I get it for Christmas & I've forgotten all about it, so I'm totally shocked & happy =)  I got a Shiatsu foot massager & a jewelry box among many other great gifts.
 
This is the manicure I wore Thursday & Friday - my last successful Christmas mani I'll admit.  I thought I do foils for the big day - Jeez, what a huge FAIL.  But it will still get it's own post, I got some OK pics the 5 minutes they stayed looking good.
 
For this marble, I started with a base color of Finger Paints Spun Sugar, a creamy off-white,, then marbled SS, Finger Paints Butterscotch Cookie & Sally Hansen Perfect Match:
 

My favorites were my left pinky, ring & thumb, and my right thumb.  Here's the tutorial:
 
 
Did you get what you wanted from Santa?  I hope so =)  Thanks for reading.

  9. Oh Colette, it is magnificent... I want to ask you for something: you would like to look for me for the poliish Sequin Scandal de Sally Hansen and to send it to me in France. I would pay you the polish and the postal charges. By Paypal if you want. Thank you for saying to me Colette if you agree and if you finds it because even on internet I can't find him it. I join you my e-mail address cocolivier@voila.fr. Thank you in advance
