Rubber Ducky, You're the One

12:51:00 AM

I sat down to paint my nails, looked at the clock, and realized it was about 12:15am.  As much as I would love to paint them right now, I am beyond exhausted and don't want to wait for them to dry.  The other night though, I somehow got a second wind and decided I had to paint my nails.  I sat down around this same time and started starring at all my polishes.

I wanted something blue on my nails, I knew that much for sure.  I grabbed my bottle of Color Club Blue Light and attempted to open it, and again, had no luck.  I have a feeling that bottle is forever stuck closed which is depressing because it is the prettiest sky blue ever.  I really need to find one of those rubber bottle opener things.  I then grabbed the next best thing, which was Funky Fingers Zeppelin which is a foil baby blue.

Once I had the pretty metallicy blue on my nails, I had no clue what to do.  On my thumb I started to do a cloud, hated it, took it off and again was back to square one.  Then I remembered this video from CutePolish's youtube page.  A cute rubber ducky nail that I wanted to do awhile ago.  So at 12:30am, I began putting little ducks on my nails.  And here is what I came up with.....

Cute right?  Instead of exactly copying cutepolish and putting ducks on just one nail, I went all out.

Colors Used:
  • Funky Fingers Zeppelin - foil blue base
  • Sinful Colors Let's Meet - duckies bodies!
  • Zoya Lianne - orange beaks
  • Sinful Colors Black On Black - eyes
  • Marbled Dots
    • Sinful Colors Snow Me White
    • Sinful Colors Love Nails
    • Sinful Colors Midnight Blue
  • New York Color White Lights Glitter - a little glitter added to the bubbles
I beyond loved this manicure.  The marbled dots were so easy to do.  I copied what cutepolish did and put a dot of each color on a paper plate.  I then took my dotting tool and dunked it into each of the polishes.  I was skeptical it would work but it did amazingly!

I love Zeppelin, the base, for two reasons.  One, the color.  Two, it is an EXACT match to Color Club's Luminscient from the 2011 Foil Collection.  Funky Fingers is manufacturer by Forsythe Cosmetics.  Since I do not own the Color Club polish, I googled some pictures for you all to be the judge.

Side by side when you see them at the store they are the same.

This manicure has given me an idea for an Easter manicure.  Instead of duckies, I think I may attempt little Peeps.  What do you think?? good idea? bad??  Stay tuned to see if I actually go through with it! :)
