About Me

Roseau, Dominica
I love nails and everything nails. This blog will be mostly about nails but I will through in some of my other creative abilities as well. I am from the nature island of the Caribbean Dominica. I live in the city Roseau. I developed and interest in nails since about 12 or maybe even before and I have been into it ever since. I must confess that I took a long break from it for reasons I have no idea. I think I just got lazy for a bit and this is a huge regret I have. But I'll make up for it.

Four Elements Challenge - Water

Hi Guys So we're back with this week's task for the Four Elements Challenge. Water.

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 decided to attempt a Waterfall nail art. I got my inspiration from our Highest Waterfall, the Trafalgar falls which I have posted an image of. I've only been to this fall once about four or five years ago. Huge rocks to climb but it was worth it.

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.
