CYNA 12 Days of Christmas, Day 12 – Freestyle

The final prompt of the challenge!  I’m two days late posting, but I’m glad to get it done at all.  To be honest, I wasn’t sure what I could possibly do for this prompt.  I didn’t want to freehand anything, but I also didn’t want to do dots or stripes or anything I would typically do on my nails.

Then I spotted ellagee’s bright blue Lickety Split latex barrier sitting amongst my polishes and thought…watermarble?

Yeah, bad idea.  Watermarbles never turn out the way they should for me.  I struggled with this for way too long for a pretty average end result.  I even tried slightly different patterns, but nothing worked well enough for my tastes.  On the plus side, the polishes I used–Peita’s Polish Triwizard, SquareHue Bird Fling, and Nvr Enuff HHC Festivus–all worked nicely and look good together.  It was just my own skills that were lacking. 😛

But for all that I don’t quite like how each individual nail looks, the overall mani looks pretty okay.  The ring and pinky nails look good at the very least.  So not a bad way to end the challenge!
