'Tinkerbell' Mani

Today I bring you what I have dubbed 'The Tinkerbell Mani'! I thought My light, metallic green, Cherish, from the China Glaze Romantiques collection would make for a nice base with a green fairy stamped over it. But then I was struck with a wonderful idea: Marble Cherish to get a swirly-shimmery, more fairy-esque base. So I did! I used Cherish, Devotion and Passion and tried another round of water marbling. Here's my right thumb:
Perfect. The colors are all soft and blend together without having a strong contrast like a did in my water marbling post. This works well for my fairy-land base.
Next, I used Konad special polish in green and plate M35 to get my fairy. She is sprinkling what looks like little flowers, and they look just like the little flowers on plate M3, so I added one more to the thumb and a bunch of random ones all over the other nails:

And that's the Tinkerbell Mani! Happy Monday!


  1. I love that! The colors are great together. I tried water marbling once and it didn't turn out so well! Lots of pitted bubbles, etc. Maybe I'll try again, yours look so nice :)

  2. Thanks Mary! Water marbling is new to me and its hard sometimes. I've gotten bubbles too, but keep trying! It's so fun to swirl the colors to gether, and it's extra exciting when it gets on the nail right! Try not to submerge the nail too deep and practice it!

  3. That is so sweet! Tiny Tinkerbell. :)
