Good Morning Polished Peeps! Yes, you are reading the title of this post correctly, it is a Twinsie Tuesday post. No, it is not Tuesday, you are 100% accurate that your Friday is here and your long work or school week is finally over!
The reason for the special Twinsie Tuesday post is because today marks the second anniversary of the Twinsie's appearance in the blog world! It's neat to think that when I was starting my blog, this group was being created. Now, here I am, part of a group that I never dreamed of being apart of! It's kind of amazing!
To celebrate this second anniversary, each of us created manicures that are inspired by other Twinsie's first posts. My manicure today is inspired by the lovely Traci from DrinkCitra. Now if you follow both mine and Traci's blog, then you know both of us have very different nail shapes. Traci has some really awesome long nails, while I have nubbins. Therefore, I was kind of scared to be inspired by one of her manicures because it can be hard fitting designs on these little nails sometimes! Her first manicure was this awesome fishtail manicure, which is a design I have never done. I have done a cloud design on my nubs, so I figured I could fit a fishtail.
Sure enough, I was! Let's take a look!
- Sally Hansen - Breezy Blue
- Color Club - Over the Moon
- Sinful Colors - Rain Storm
Cute look, right? I am so happy with how it turned out! I originally was going to copy Traci's purple color scheme since I love that color more than anything, but I decided to switch it up and use some of my blue polishes. I also switched it up by adding dots instead of using loose glitter like Traci. I decided to not place individual pieces of glitter because I do not have the patience for it. I love how it looks, but seriously, I give Traci and all other bloggers who have sat and placed each piece of glitter so much credit! I can paint a SpiderMan on my nails, but when it comes to glitter placement, that's it's own art which no lie would take me 19831907 days to do.
I really love the fishtail design and the dots! I'm so happy I went with the blue. I really loved the color of my base, which was Sally Hansen Breezy Blue. It was such a unique baby blue polish, which was a bit sheer but built up nicely in three coats. It had teeny tiny bit of shimmer in it which I really liked. What I didn't like was it's dry time. Oh my goodness, it took forever for each coat to dry! In the end, it was worth it!
What do you think? Liking the blue?
