Twinsie Tuesday: Bubbles

When I saw this week's theme on the list I immediately heard that electric swooshing noise, followed by, "Sugar! Spice! And everything nice!" and knew that my "Bubbles" nails were going to be a flashback to The Powerpuff Girls.

OPI Can't Find My Czechbook was my pick for Bubbles' signature blue. Over that I added two coats of Sation Most Hue-Nique, a gift from Maribeth, which I thought would be a good match for Czechbook's colour...and yeah, it definitely that, because the blue glitters practically blend right in! It also has some purple glitter and gold micro-glitter in a lightly blue-tinted base, and in all honesty, I love it. There's bars and different sizes and contrast, and it makes me think of teeny-tiny confetti, but it also has a subdued and understated side. Thank you so much, MB! ^_^

My Bubbles nail started with OPI My Very First Knockwurst, and her features are acrylic paint (except for the pupils, which I dotted with polish because I'd pressed my "drawing an actual circle" luck quite hard enough at that point). I thought about adding the rest of her pigtails to my index and ring finger nails, but Husband wisely counseled restraint. Still kinda wish I'd done them, but after living with my nail and nail art obsession for almost...OMIGOSH, it's been over 2 years now!...he can be relied upon to provide some incredibly accurate risk vs. reward assessments. So, Bubbles, blue, and some sparkling, effervencent--even bubbly!--glitter to go with, and then I finished off with butter LONDON matte top coat.

Wow, what with travel and all, I missed my site's 2nd anniversary...and I'm kinda bummed that I missed it...but then I'm also psyched because dag, does time fly, and I'm so excited that I'm still enjoying this "little hobby" so much after over two years! Oh, and on the subject of anniversaries? I did today's nails yesterday because Husband and I are stepping out tonight for our anniversary!

I predict champagne. Which has those delightful bubbles, and we're back on topic... Please visit some of my fellow Twinsies to see what sort of Bubbles they chose for this week's theme!
