Twinsie Tuesday: Bubbles

So I'm late to the party with my Twinsie Tuesday mani this week, but here goes! As I mentioned in yesterday's post, this week's theme is bubbles. Honestly I was a bit stumped as to how to interpret this theme, but I gave it my best shot.

I started with a base of OPI Don't Burst My Bubble (because of course) and then did an accent nail with some beads from a Born Pretty kit, with the idea that they would look like little bubbles. Originally I tried using clear beads, since I figured they would look the most bubble-like, but they looked weirdly creepy over a nude polish. Instead of bubbles, they looked like some sort of lumpy growth on my nail bed and nobody wants that! (Sorry, I didn't think to snap a picture before I went to Plan B.) So off they came and I used some lavender beads instead!

So yeah, not the greatest mani ever and I don't know if it necessarily says "bubbles" but hey, I tried! I'm curious to see what everyone else did with this theme!
