Bestie Twin Nails with Fashion Footing: Round 7!


Good morning everyone!  How are you all today?  I hope you all are having a great Sunday!  Tomorrow is Monday but we will try to forget about that for the time being.  Instead we can look at some nails!

Today I am sharing with you all Round 7 of Bestie Twin Nails with Amanda from Fashion Footing!  I'm really enjoying this monthly feature we've been doing!  Especially since Amanda has been wanting to do more intricate designs.

This month we are recreating this design by JaryNails on Instagram.  Amanda found the design early November and we decided on it.  I procrastinated on the design because I wasn't too sure about how it would look on my own nails.  I'm not the biggest fan of the manicure, but it wasn't the worst that I've ever done. 

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Gradient
    • Sinful Colors - Cool Grey
    • Pure Ice - Kiss Me Here
    • INM - Verbena
  • Silver Snow
    • Finger Paints - Glitz and Glam
The gradient is my favorite part of the manicure.  I really, really, REALLY loved the grey to purple transition.  Such a neat combination I never would have thought of if it weren't for the manicure we were recreating.

The silver wasn't cooperating with me and didn't show up how I wanted it too.  I think I needed a more opaque silver polish.  I wonder if it would have worked better with OPI This Crown Needs a Gown.  When Amanda's weren't showing up so well she added a matte top coat which made them start to pop.  



This photo you can see the snowflakes clearer.  I used a striper brush in the bottle of FingerPaints Glitz and Glam to get the silver flakes.  I've never used a striper brush in a regular polish bottle.  It was kind of difficult to do and it made me wonder if striper polishes are different formulas than regular nail painting polishes.  If that makes sense.

What do you think?  Liking this look?

Make sure to head over to Amanda's blog and check out her re-creation!

Until next time,< 3.
