Today is an exciting day for me! I start my training for the Red Cross disaster response team. It's like going back to school haha! In my area this means mostly responding to house fires, but also other traumas or events which affect the community. I've wanted to do this forever but a recent tradgedy in my community gave me the push I needed. My father was at the small local airport he is a part of the day Young Eagles were going on flights. There was a terrible accident and one of the pilots and his 15 year old passenger were killed. This has only ever happened twice in the history of the program. It was absolutely devastating and my dad said it was horrible to see all the kids and families learning about the accident when the plane had not returned. The Red Cross responded with support for the community and with my license I can provide that "psychological first aid." I love this type of work and can't wait to get out there!
Okay on to the lighter content (sorry, guys!). Today I have Hare Polish Dead Man's Bones, a gray jelly with black matte microglitters and white satin glitters. The jelly is really sheer so I layered two thin coats over KBShimmer My Life's Porpoise. I needed it more opaque to go with my accent nail inspired by the color palette--a water marble decal!

Is it watermarble or water marble? I don't know. I also can't remember who suggested this first, please tell me in your comments who it might have been! Now there are so many and google is just giving me nonsense now. I like to take nail art slow so I spent a few days just playing with polish and making the marbles. It was ridiculous amounts of fun. I tested the polishes I wanted to use first and then just laid the dry circles on a paper towel to air dry. For this marble I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and Maybelline Bare Escape. I streaked my decal a little while top-coating but all in all I am pleased! Water marbling is now attainable for the masses. Also: WATER MARBLE ALL THE THINGS. Who is with me?!
