Red swirls over pink.  Here are some red swirly tips over pink.  An interesting twist on a french perhaps?

Red swirls.  Just playing around and made some red swirls on my nails.  Not the best execution, but I like the idea of it.

Pink swirls.  Freehanded pink swirls over a bare nail.  I like how from far away it almost looks like solid color - but not quite.

Half swirls in orange and purple.  Here are some swirls that take up half the nail and have a black line to define them.  Please excuse my cuticles as I was gardening this weekend!

Water marbling with swirls of green.  I love water marbling.  Yes, it is messy and can be unpredictable, but that is part of the fun, no?  This time, I used a teal green, light green, grey, black, and some fabulous sparkly pink.  To mix it up, I exchanged the pink for the gold on the ring fingers. 
You all know I find it so difficult and awkward to photograph my right hand, but because it looked so different (and awesome!) here it is:

I love how the ring finger came out on the left and the middle on the right.
Polish used: American Apparel Malibu, Office, and Echo Park, Zoya Roxy, Wet n Wild Black, and Mattese Elite Cream Dream (on the ring fingers)

Green swirls for St. Patrick’s Day.  After this I put some gold glitter near my cuticles but it didn’t photograph well.

Pink and silver swirly swirls.  I was going to do something to the tips so I left that area swirl-less but I kind of liked how that looked so I left it as is.  Maybe next time…

Pucci-esque water marbling take two.  This is the right hand and is just as swirly and neat as the left.
Nail polish used (same as the left): American Apparel Mac Arthur Park and California Trooper, Mattese NYC Neon Fury, and Wet N Wild Black.  All this on a base of Wet N Wild white polish (to help the colors pop).  Party.
