I'm a Barbie Girl

Howdy! I have another favorite childhood things mani to share today. BARBIE!!!! I LOVED playing Barbie's when I was a little girl. I had tons of dolls and clothes. I loved playing with my best friend Becca, we would play for hours.

One of my favorite Barbies was "Totally Hair Barbie". She had on a cool mini dress and long, long hair. I loved playing with her.



Polishes used were Kleancolors white, China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic, Wet and Wild Tickled Pink, Sinful Colors Innocent, and an LA Colors teal with no name.



I tried water marbling because that's what her dress reminded me of but it was a fail every time so I gave up and did it by hand. I guess water marbling is just hit or miss for me. Speaking of fails, it also took me a few tries to be happy with my Barbie face. Thought it might be fun to share those too.



She just kept looking like Miss Piggy. Although, I really love the eye above, it turned out really pretty. Just didn't look like Barbie.



Sometimes it takes several tries to get it right. And then sometimes I just give up and take it off in a huff and do something else ;)

Did you play with Barbie's as a child? Did you have a favorite?
