Digit-al Dozen DOES Recreation Week - Hannah's Bubbles

Hi Goddesses

This week is the 3rd anniversary of the Digit-al Dozen, and to celebrate, we are celebrating EACH OTHER by re-creating each other's manis.

Now this sounds like a fun enterprise .... until you realise a few things - 

* I alone have done 175 DD manis, which means in total there are about 2500 manis to choose from!

* some of our ladies have serious skills.  Lindsey, as much as I love you, I just can't go there lol

* loving a mani and being able to replicate it are 2 entirely different things  .....

In choosing this week's manis I either went for manis which looked Crumpet-y or those which knocked me sideways with a "why didn't *I* think of that" wail.

Today's mani is a recreation of a mani Hannah from Dalai Lama's Nails did for childhood week, which I think I sat out as I was "on a break".    Hannah did this amazing blue mani to create bubbles, and I instantly feel in love with it.

Turns out recreating this was not as easy as I'd hoped!  I don't know whether it was my brand of acrylics, but I had real trouble getting my bubbles to a) sit still and b) develop an outer ring, like Hannah's.   It wasn't till I matte-d my red bubbles and then added some purple ones that I felt I got something workable.

I chose to keep mine matte, and whilst I love my colour combo, overall I prefer Hannah's - her bubbles have a depth and a life to them that mine lack.

This is going to be a really fun week, so make sure you check out what everybody else has done.
