Happy Sunday polished world! Hope you all are doing well today! It is officially one week until Easter, which means I'm going to try to squeeze in as many Easter manicures as I can this week! I'm off to a great start today with one, and already have one scheduled for Twinsie Tuesday!!!
Today I am doing some Bestie Twin Nails with Sarah from 25 SweetPeas! I bet you all were expecting me to say that I'm doing them with Amanda from Fashion Footing, but not today. In a few weeks we are going to be having our monthly collaboration. We already picked out our design, and it's going to be awesome!
After I featured Sarah on the blog as the March Nail Artist of the Month, I suggested that we do a Bestie Twin Nails post together, and she agreed! Since Easter is right around the corner, it was only fitting to do an Easter design! We recreated this design which I found on Pinterest.
Let's take a look!
- NYC New York Color - Jacaranda Flower
- Funky Fingers - Mrs. Mint
- FingerPaints - Silver Bells
- FingerPaints - Sterling Sculpture
- White acrylic
I cheated, I used white acrylic paint for my bunny and dots. It was late, I was sleepy, and it was the easiest away to create a design that was somewhat perfect. I love using acrylics, but when I've found when they are at the base of the nail and if you do not wrap the end enough with top coat, it will chip off very quickly. I probably could have gotten a full three days out of this manicure if it weren't for the chipping white and the chipping Mrs. Mint. Love that polish, but hate how fast it starts to wear!
My silver nail wore like steel. FingerPaints has hit a home run with their glitters. Silver Bells was part of their winter collection and is a fine micro glitter. In two coats, I have full coverage which does not want to come off. I added a top coat of Sterling Sculpture which added the larger flecks to the nail. Loved the combo and will have to do it again soon!
Jacaranda Flower is one of my favorite purples. I used it for the daisy manicure I currently have as my default photo on Facebook and Twitter. It's a perfect purple which applies evenly in two coats. I'm sad that it was part of a limited edition collection so I cannot snag another bottle. Hopefully I will find a dupe of it soon. I'll probably head on over to Sarah's blog to see what she used for her purple because it looks pretty close!
