My Little Mermaid

Hey everyone!!  Tomorrow, little Dixie will be competing in another doggy costume contest!  She won first place last year, so now she has to defend her title!!!

*Update: Dixie won!!!!*

Since she'll be dressed as a mermaid, I wanted to be sure to have a matching mani!!  I almost grabbed my stamping plates for this one, but then I thought about how much fun a water marble would be for this!!

I started off with two coats of Sinful Colors Be Happy, a medium aqua creme - which I forgot to take a picture of because I got so excited about it I apparently got a little ahead of myself!  

The formula for Be Happy is a little on the thick but streaky side.  To wear this one it's own, I probably would have needed three coats for a clean look.

For the marbling, I continued with Be Happy and added Zoya Mira, a medium purple creme.

To go with Dixie's sparkly sequins, I added one coat of China Glaze Wireless Holographic Top Coat, and finished with one coat of SV.

And again, I almost went for a scaled stamp over this, but I was so happy with the way the marbling turned out, I couldn't bring myself to cover it with anything!

Doesn't Dixie look super cute?!  She'll have her game face on tomorrow!  She may not be too bright, bless her heart, but she was born for this!!!

I hope you enjoy this one!!  I know I did!

Happy Painting!
