May I present one of Marie’s more intricate gelicures. Don’t be fooled by the demure color palette; this is still pretty wild.

Subtle at first glance... but look close, and the genius is there.

First of all, the glitter. So cool! It’s sort of mathematical to me. Index with right half, middle is full, ring finger’s left half, pinky is none. It’s well-balanced. I like, I like.

For those of you who’ve ventured into DIY nail art, you can imagine how tricky the design on her thumb is. Dare I even try it?

I know what you’re thinking. You’re remembering my sorry first attempt at Water Marbling. Yeah, me too. :) Maybe I should stick to simpler paint jobs. ;)

I think one of you with some real artsy talent should try to do Marie’s dessert-y marble look. Imagine a tiramisu-themed mani! Did you know sugary sweet nail art is actually kind of a thing? Observe:

Cupcake French Manicure. It also reminds me of froyo. Hmm... mmm.

And these remind me of... I mean, really — how does one describe such things. I once had a My Little Pony Ice Cream Shoppe in my youth*, and if you magically transformed that toy cafe into nailz, I think this is exactly what it would look like. And do not mistake me. These are not nails, these are NAILZ.

Lovely in Lacquer has a great tutorial. Learn how to make these donut nailz!

Now THESE are some dessert-y nailz I can fully support. Makes me miss my Dunkin' Donuts days.

ciaociao, GLOSS

P.S. Couldn’t resist. I found pictures (Google images to the rescue) of the MLP Ice Cream Shoppe, shaped like a shoe nonetheless.
