Twinsie Tuesday: Re-visit a Prompt!

Press Sample
Hello there everyone!  How are you all today?  It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another Twinsie Tuesday!  This week our prompt is to re-visit a past post we loved, hated, or had to miss.  Since I missed applique week a few weeks ago, I figured I should re-visit that prompt!  Perfect timing as well since I just received some appliques from the Incoco Metropolis collection for Summer 2014!

It was difficult for me to pick one applique from the five that I was sent because they all were so pretty!  For today's post, I decided to go with the City Girl appliques which are a light silver base with different black and grey designs and writing on them.  Totally a design I could never accomplish on my own with nail art brushes, so it really stuck out to me as a unique design!
Let's take a look!




Compared to my last experience with Incoco appliques, I found these to be much easier to use.  Maybe it's just me and practice is starting to make perfect.  Regardless, they were easy to use.  I really loved that not all the nails were the same in this pack.  There is one design which was too big for my nails which was a silver nail that said "Fashion" in a chevron pattern which was to be worn at the cuticle.  It looked really cool and I wish it would have fit my nails!

My only complaint regarding these appliques are that they are kind of sheer.  You can sort of see my nail line in a few of the photos.  If I were using a silver base, I typically use 2 to 3 coats because I dislike that "smile" line.  The designs are so busy though that you can't really tell, it was just something I noticed.


As you can see from looking at my pointer and middle finger, I still need a little more practice getting my appliques to lay flat.  Any tips on how to do so?  For some reason these are always the two nails I have the most trouble with.

Do you like the appliques?  Think they're a fun design you would  wear?

If you want your own pack of Incoco City Girl appliques, you can purchase them here for $8.99!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Metropolis collection while you're there!  I hope to have the rest of the appliques posted on the blog in the next week or so!

Don't forget to check out the other Twinsie's posts!  Can't wait to see what everyone revisited!
