A quote from Shakespeare's MacBeth on my thumbnail, two of the three witches on my index, on my middle finger doth the cauldron boil and bubble, the third witch on my ring finger, and some of the ingredients for their potion (toe of frog, eye of newt, and finger of a birth-strangled babe - I know, ewwww!) on my pinkie.
I did the marble nail on my middle finger. I haven't done water marbling in a while, so this kind of sucks. Oh well.
It cleans up nice though. And to further hide my failure at water marbling, I turned it into a cauldron. :-)
Then I added the witches. Honestly, they are too cute. They needed to be a bit more creepy. The only one I really liked was the round faced one on my index finger. And she is still too cute.
I added some facial features next and their little witchy robes.
And here are the finished nails before topcoat. I like the pinkie with the disgusting ingredients on it, but overall, I was not as happy with these nails. I imagined something different than how they actually turned out.
And I must've been distracted, because I totally forgot to put the polishes I used for marbling in this photo. Doh! Or as Shakespeare would say, "Forsooth!" Polished used in this manicure: Essie All In One basecoat, Sinful Colors Seaweed, Seche Vite topcoat, and not pictured: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Expres-so Yellow, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety Split-Lime, and NYC New York Color Flat Iron Green.
So there you have my geek-tastic MacBeth nails. I actually wrote a script for a pep rally my senior year in high school that was a riff on the Three Witches scene from MacBeth. Yes, that is how big of a nerd I am.
Tomorrow: nails inspired by a Color. What color will it be??!
