Sydney's Style Blue and Aqua Nail Art
Today I have a bit of a different post to share with you today. My daughter has decided that it's time to take over my blog again. It's been a few years since she's done this, in fact, the last time way back in January 2014 with her Laffy Taffy polish post. This time she tried her hand at a little nail art.
Sydney often comes into my office and asks if she can do watermarble designs. Typically she just makes the design in the water, removes it from the cup and starts another design. She's even starting her own collection of Sinful Colors polishes just so she can do this. Last month Sydney was hanging out in my office working on a watermarble design while I was putting together my red nail polish stamping comparison post and was inspired by my half black half white nails. Instantly the watermarble fun was forgotten and she wanted to do her nails in a similar way. This is what she came up with.
At 9 years old, Sydney is already a very independent little girl. I haven't been able to pick out her clothes since she was 5. (Thankfully I'm still the one that buys them so I have some say over what she wears.) She actually painted her nails all by herself and did her own cleanup. While we need to work a little bit more on her clean up and hand pose I'm pretty proud of what she came up with.
Both polishes used in this manicure are from Sinful Colors and are Ocean Side and Mint Apple. The blue stripe was done with a Striping polish I picked up from Sallys that had a little shimmer to it but otherwise was a pretty good match to Ocean Side.
Of course, she had to use my Ribbit Stix unicorn decals the moment she saw them. Which I had just received in the Addie May Charity box. To finish her look off Sydney added a few flower stickers that I picked up ages ago but can't quite remember from where.
I like the look that she ended up with and love that she wanted to photograph them and do a blog take over. She's come a long way with her painting skills since that first post and I hope it's not another 4 years before I can share her nails again. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
