I really wanted to do a water marble mani but the polishes just weren't cooperating. I was so disappointed. I have no idea what I was doing wrong this time. These are the same polished I used before and I even bought some more just for this cause and I had no success. I had to come up with something else. I was stumped then it hit me. Hey you live in the land of rivers and waterfalls. In Dominica as the Nature Island of the Caribbean we proudly boast three hundred and sixty five rivers/streams. For a tiny island, that's incredible. We also have an abundance of water falls, the 2nd Largest Boiling lake in the world, beautiful beaches and non stop rain. So we're blessed with water all around.

I can't say I'm jumping up and down over this mani but at least I tried. We are a green island so the green represents the trees which surround the Trafalgar Falls and at the tip I created a pool. The brown dots are supposed to represent rock because each pool of water has an arch of rocks at the end to help maintain the pool. I remember growing up as a girl actually putting rocks in place to create deep pools in the river where we'd spend our summer days. I wish I could come up with something better but that's all the brain would allow.
I drafted this post on Sunday and it is Tuesday and I've decided to give the water marble one last attempt. This is what I came up with. Both colours represent water. We have some real green pools here such as our emerald pool and the blue sky usually makes water appear blue.
