Twinsie Tuesday- Bubbles

Purchased by Me
Happy Twinsie Tuesday everyone! I had a bit of an emotional weekend, ending with our house officially being placed for sale on yesterday. Sigh....I am still very excited about our upcoming move to Massachusetts, but this is a very bittersweet time. This is the first home that we purchased for our family and I really love it. Anyway, we have so much to do, so I don't have much time to sit around and mope.

Today's theme called for bubbles. I have never done this particular manicure, so I had to use the mighty YouTube for a tutorial. The technique was quite simple, but I somehow still failed. 

I used a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (white) and added a gradient using Zoya Rebel on the middle and ring fingers. I then used orange, yellow, and teal acrylic paints to create try to create the bubbles.  To finish it off I added one light coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on each of the nails. I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top for topcoat. 

Like I said earlier, this was a fail. My bubbles look like dots. Clearly I need to practice this technique again. Oh well...I'm sure the other Twinsies have some fantastic bubble manis to show you.

  14. It looks gorgeous to me. I have not found a white that looks good on my nails. I must try the OPI.
