Today I have the idea I tried originally about a week ago, then tried again, a different way Friday night. It looked pretty good, just not like I saw in my minds eye. I have 1 more way to try it, so I will show you then what my inspiration was.
For now here is what went down Friday.
I decided to do the base using water marbling. I started with my left hand using all China Glaze. Rich and Famous, Spontaneous, Turned Up Turquoise, and In the Lime Light. That wound up being too light, so I decided to try different colors on my right hand to see if it was closer to what I was aiming for. So for the right hand I used CG Caribbean Temptation, CG Spontaneous, CG Sexy in the City and Pure Ice Wild Thing. When I dripped the colors for my middle nail on my right hand the colors didn't dissipate as much as they had been, and the color came out almost perfect. I have watched the china glaze video on water marbling and my polish dissipates WAY WAY more then it does in the video. In the video it spreads but there's still a gap between the bowl and the polish edge, and the polish edge is much more uniform and dense. I have tried cool water, warm water, room temp water, bottled water, tap water, I don't know why mine wont work right.
But anyway. I then took M63 and stamped it in Black over the design.
The finished product reminds me of a cross between tie dye and old school comic books, because of the colors!
I also cant for the life of me, figure out why my Konad design streaked. I used the same bottle of Special Polish and the same bottle of Seche Vite I always use, and yet, STREAKS! grrrrrr!
Ok on to Zoya....So skip if you don't care :)
I got a call yesterday afternoon from a very sweet girl, saying she got my message online and was very concerned that my Zoya transaction had left me unhappy. I explained to her that when I had no shipping confirmation the day after the ship date I got concerned that maybe there was something wrong with the order, so I called and was told it would ship out within the next week. I explained that I totally understood that things happen, no biggie, but that I really had a problem when I discovered that evening that their website suddenly said "Ships 9/30", and because of that I felt I was lied to by the associate I spoke with. She apologized and said she had no idea why I was told that and explained that apparently their web design department had gotten their dates mixed up. 9/15 was the Zoya insider and Blogger early release date. Everyone else gets theirs shipped out 9/30. She also said that they hope to have them out before then, but it just depended on when the corrected green came in. I thanked her for the call and explained that that's all I really wanted in the first place and we hung up.
I was satisfied.
Then I got on Twitter today and Zoya had this update yesterday afternoon: "Just wanted to let everyone know that we are 10 days behind on shipping the Matte Winter shades. We know everyone is excited.....we are filling them as fast as we can. No ones account has been charged until the colors ship. Sorry for the delay."
Ok, so does that mean I was lied to yesterday and it really WAS supposed to be released on 9/15, or does that mean that the Bloggers and Insiders are having to wait (because Scrangie and others certainly have theirs already) or does that mean that us "average Joes" have to wait 10 more days past the 30th?
I'm so confused.
All I wanna know now is....
How do I get on their Blogger list???
I want stuff early!
Thanks for visiting, I hope everyone has a fantastic day!
