My Aunt showed up in a tank top so I snapped a photo to later replicate the design on my nails. The vice is one of my many hacks, if it’s metal and I can reface it I often do. The vice was cobalt blue before I attacked it with flamingo pink spray paint. 🙂
Envy is a dark army green but it’s showing up as black

It’s my birthday and Independence Day! This water marble MANicure is a present from my Husband, Mr. FLBN, who actually did my nails! Mr. FLBN, an artist & hobby painter himself, was watching a youtube video of guitars being water marbled in 80’s colors and wanted to give it a try in red, white & blue. I have the greatest husband ever! Seriously.
Cleanup took over 2 hours, you can see why!
Took a mulligan on my index finger

Blogger – Finally, my first Picture Polish! The name alone sells it! I swatched a quarter of my nail wheel trying to figure out the most complimentary polish for this glitter. Ultimately, I settled on grey.
Picture Polish – Blogger
Zoya – Carey
Blueberry Fizz – Julie G. I’m loving this polish! It’s textured but doesn’t catch and snag on clothing like glitter normally does.

I took inspiration from the polish name for this design. Sun of a Peach, which seemed much brighter in person, with a topcoat of flakies. Nuclear Energy in purple with a peach on top.

Here’s a baby Sun Conure! The other nails were blended to capture the orange, yellow & green of the parrot. I made a nail sticker this time instead of trying to paint everything upside down and cut him out with cuticle scissors. It’s not lost on me that I put the bird on the bird, sorry, it was unintentional. It wasn’t fitting on my ring finger and I had already painted my index. I based him off the picture I took below of this 2 month old my husband is holding:
He’s sleeping with his mouth open.
