It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Mythical Creatures! Remember how I mentioned on Monday that dragons are always the first mythical creature that come to mind for me? Well, phoenix are rarely far behind. I love the whole concept of the phoenix, from its flaming body to its ability to resurrect. So today, I have done a phoenix-inspired drip marble.
To get this look, I drip marbled using Zoya Cam and Darcy, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Color Club Over the Moon, Tip Top Gold Digger, Darling Diva The Alpha, and the appropriately named Indigo Bananas Color of the Fire. I’m really happy with the ratios of red/yellow/blue/white I managed to get, and the flakies that peek through in a couple of places! Although I could have done with the flakies showing up a tiny bit more, I think they are enough.
I can just imagine the rippling flames of the phoenix’s wing or flank looking like this!
A couple of other Digital Dozen members have already shared their phoenix-inspired looks as well, it seems to have been a popular choice for this theme (along with mermaids and unicorns!)
I am so happy with how this drip marble came out. I had to show you 3 different macros just because each nail is so different and yet each is perfect!
I must confess that I think I’ve skewed all of my best nail art to the first half of the week with this theme. I’ve loved all 3 looks I’ve shared so far; I’m less sure about the 2 that remain for the week! But for now, check out the other Digital Dozen posts for today:
