Hola mis amigos!!  Welcome to another combined mani post - inspired by a flag for the 31 Day Challenge and Water Marble for The Lazy 15!!

Some of you may remember from my 25 Random Things about Me, that I'm Chilean, Finnish, Italian and Irish.  It's quite the mix and I'm glad I didn't have to think too hard about what flag I wanted to be inspired by.  I decided to pay homage to the country of my dad's birth by doing a water marbled mani inspired by the Chilean flag.  I ended up doing a literal flag instead and the water marble didn't turn out quite as I hoped, but it's there if you look real close - I water marbled the red and the blue, which you can't see very well!!  CHI-CHI-CHI-LE-LE-LE-VIVA-CHILE!!!

This is another one of those, used too many colors to keep track of - it doesn't look like it, but I did :)

  6. I love it! I can totally see your water marble, that had to be a pain in the ass to do it that way too!

    1. Thanks girl!! It was actually a lot easier for me to do than doing my whe nail, no pressure to get cool patterns on such a big surface, this way was smaller so who cares if I can get the whole pattern....
