Have You Picked Your Colour Scheme?

White, Green and Black Nail Marble

So, because I have no intent on marbling my nails for the big day at the end of this month…I thought it would be fun to do up the “wedding colours” for the upcoming bridal shower this weekend.  People ask us about our wedding colours all the time.  It seems to be a question in the top three…

You’re getting married?  Congratulations!

When is the big day?

Have you picked your colour scheme?

That seems crazy to me.  That people inquire about colours before anything else.  It’s funny, because we never even picked colours at all.  But with it being brought up so early in conversation, it seems like it must be important…I guess we missed something with planning our wedding.  I guess I thought people would be more interested in the location, the bridal party, the vows.  Something?!

Peppermint Nails

Candycane Nails

Today I felt like nail marbling and although I wasn’t trying to create what I will fondly refer to here on out as “Peppermint Nails” I sort of stumbled upon this look by accident. Because “Heart of Africa” and “Watermelon Rind” nail polishes work so nice in the water, I decided I’d put them together and because I just picked up “Swing Baby” I wanted to include it. As soon as I saw the first nail come out, I couldn’t think about anything other than “that looks like a candy cane – perfect!” So here we are.

Heart of Africa, Swing Baby, Watermelon Rind

To note:  I did not use the white base coat on my nails.  This wasn’t because I thought it would look better, but simply out of sheer laziness.  It was already late and I wanted to save a step.  I have no doubt that the white base coat would make these Peppermint Nails really pop.
