Meat Marble

I wanted a rich "cozy Victorian library in a Georgian manse" feeling and instead I got meat.

Well, you'll see....

Instead of leather bound books, a crackling fireplace, and a glass of dry sherry, I get a really creepy look.

It's like decaying flesh.

Like the cadaver lab at a medical school. 

I think mattifying it, which I ended up doing here, made it less like "body found by the wetland behind the hunting lodge" and more presentable.

I didn't keep it on long after I photographed it. I'd only done 4 fingers and trying to water marble more of this monstrosity was too daunting. Remember, I hold the banner for craft challenged and the payoff wasn't twinkling my bell.

Here are the polishes I used:

I think a yellow or a yellow green would have smartened it all up.

This ended up more like a Murder Mystery Weekend on the Golden Girls (tell me you've seen that episode, right?)

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. *lol* Meat, indeed -- with connective tissue no less! But hey, at least you gave it a go, which is more than I've ever even contemplated doing when it comes to water marbling. A+ for effort and extra credit for humor!

    1. Thank you! It was pretty slimey until I mattified. Hehe. ;)
