#TheLacquerRing: Watermarble & #31DC2015: Inspired by a Book

It's another double prompt day and I think you all should be impressed that I managed to combine, once again, #TheLacquerRing and #31DC2015. The prompts included "water marble" (AGAIN, You've got to be Kidding Me!) and "Inspired by a Book."

So I've had this book, The Rainbow Goblins, since I was a kid. It was one of my favorites. Years ago when I first moved out on my own I was sad to find that my original copy was literally falling apart, which tells you how many times I read this thing. Not only is it a fun story (my Hubs disagrees, he thinks it's creepy) but the art is absolutely stunning. General gist of the story is that there are goblins who lasso rainbows and drink their colors, but the flowers foil them and you get some amazing (including water marbled) art. 

For this look, I attempted to create the cover with a lasso'd rainbow on two of my fingers. I tried (there was much cursing and restarting) to mimic the water marbles on a few fingers and on my thumb I attempted to paint the Red Goblin. 





And there you have it. My Rainbow Goblins nail art. If you are interesting in seeing some of the art from the book, you can do so here. Besides one more #StampingSaturday, this is the end of double prompts for me. Thank goodness. I can't wait till next month when we're back to normal. Tomorrow is inspired by fashion. I guess I'll have to spend my day looking at beautiful clothes. ;-)



I used mostly OPI for this look. The colors are in ROYGBIV My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours, Where Did Suzi's Man-go?, I Just Can't Cope-acabana, Jade is the New Black, Can't Find My Czechbook, Eurso...Euro, Do you Have this Color in Stock-holm?, French Quarter for Your Thoughts (grey). I also used Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Cirque Colors Memento Mori.


Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. Until I remembered this book, I was thinking I'd have to do two posts. Thank goodness for the Rainbow Goblins.

  2. I dunno how you did two challenges in one, I'm amazed. Your incorporating colored illustrations from the book into your water marble turned out great.

    1. This book was a god send because otherwise I'd have had to do two posts and that would have sucked. Yes they are!
