Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Car


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  I'm sitting here in shock that it is yet again another Tuesday.  Seriously people, where is the time going??  Didn't I just post a Twinsie Tuesday post yesterday!?  Sigh.

This week for Twinsie Tuesday we are sharing manicures which are inspired by our cars.  Now my car is "Magnetic Grey Metallic" which is a very pretty color.  I love it so much that it is definitely going to be the color of my next car.  Now, I even though I love my car and the color of it, I didn't really want to match my nails to it because my life is so busy that I do not have time to do swatching of plain polishes and I didn't want to have gray nails for 3 days.

So I went on Pinterest and I searched "Fun cars" and came across this pin.  You know me and my love of florals.  I would totally drive a daisy car around town, especially a blue one.  So I decided to match my nails to that pretty daisy vehicle.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Sally Hansen - Tidal Wave
  • Acrylics
Tidal Wave from Sally Hansen is from the Miracle Gel collection.  Goodness this polish is perfect.  Two coats and it was full coverage of the most gorgeous blue ever.  I love the brush in these bottles.  I only have to swipe twice to get full coverage across my nail.  Love love love.

Now, I kind of cheated and used my own quick dry top coat instead of the Miracle Gel Top Coat because I was in a hurry and wanted to go to bed.  Well that was a mistake because it kind of shrunk the tips.  I don't know if the quick dry topper is to blame or if I didn't let the base dry enough.  I literally slapped this manicure together in a matter of a half hour.


I love the little daisies.  The more I look at the photos, they kind of look like weird sunny side up eggs.  I swear they are daisies!

What do you think??  Like this look?  Think Tidal Wave is gorgeous?

Somewhere Amanda from Fashion Footing is shaking her head that I didn't match my nails to my own personal car and instead cheated and used a Pinterest car.  Oops.

Until next time, <3.
