NOTD: Red & Gold Swirl Wate Marble + Tutorial

I meant to post this on Monday.  I've been totally tired & lazy & non-creative all week ... after I took this marble off I have in fact had the same plain silver on my nails for 3 days.  I'm not sick, I'm just ... easily distracted.  I read an entire book on Tuesday LOL, couldn't put it down, Wednesday I just vegetated in front of the TV & somehow still was not in bed early, even though I didn't do a post or redo my nails ...
Well.  Anyway ... some nails for all you wonderful patient people =)  This was my Valentine's mani, although it wasn't overly filled with hearts or pink like some of my other manis.  I started off with Milani Good Morning Sunshine as my base color, then marbled with GMS & Revlon Ruby Ribbon - which marbled not too bad for a matte polish:
Here are my favorite nails - left pinky, right ring, middle & index:

And here is the tutorial:
I'll try to get the silver posted tomorrow - plain but gorgeous =)  Tomorrow evening or maybe on Saturday I will be marbling my mom's nails for her birthday, and I'm considering doing another drag marble for myself, but I'm being reeeaaally indecisive on colors, so I don't know.  We'll see.
Thanks for reading.
