Twinsie Tuesday: Bubbles

Hi there polish friends, welcome to Tuesday, where we are just glad it isn't Monday.  I didn't sleep on Sunday night so I'm dragging a bit today.  I am excited however for a few reasons.  I filmed a bunch of videos last night, I have a crapton of new polish to swatch that I got in the mail yesterday, and I found part of the newest Essie collection, Haute in the Heat, early at Kohls of all places so I picked up three of those colors yesterday.  I also have the OPI Neons, my Zoya Earth Day Haul, and nine harder to find OPIs that I found on vacation.  I'm going to need a major swatch fest this weekend :)
Onto the theme for today's Twinsie Tuesday, bubbles.  I looked at the prompt of "bubbles" on Saturday and honestly thought what the heck am I going to do?  I wouldn't have thought that I couldn't come up with a nail design but this one was a tough one.  However, I do love what I came up with.

This look was super simple to create!  I started with a base of Julep Jules which is a pretty light pink cream that I received in my Julep box this month.  I then used Lac Attack Imagine and dug out some polish and put it on a paper plate.  With a tiny nail art brush I placed the glitter on the nail in a gradient pattern.  I liked this because I thought it combined classic bubble colors like blue and white with more whimsical colors of bubbles (think pink bubbles of the Good Witch in the Wizard of Oz).  I then finished with one coat of topcoat.

I'd love to know what you think of my bubble interpretation.  Don't forget to check out the other Twinsies below.  Have a great Tuesday everyone!
