Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Hobby


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It's Tuesday which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday!  Today we are sharing manicures inspired by our hobby other than nail polish.  Now it is no secret that nail polish is a huge part of my life and my main hobby, so thinking of something other than nail polish started to become quite the challenge.

Then, it hit me...crochet!  A month or so ago some of the residents at work showed me how to do a little chain when we were playing with yarn and I now am hooked.  So much so that I decided that I'm going to make myself an afghan.  If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen my little project's progress!

This weekend actually I posted that I added the green onto the purple portion of my afghan.  I'm so proud of myself that I've taught myself how to do most of this!  It's exciting.

So for today's design, I decided to do a weave design using two colors which are similar to my afghan.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Chalk it Up
  • China Glaze - Lotus Begin
  • Orly Instant Artist - Black
Cute, right?  I started off with a base coat of white polish, and then sponged the purple and green on.  When that was dry, I used my Orly Instant Artist and drew on the painted/weave design on the top.  To me, the weave kind of looked like a braided crochet look...maybe?



I think it looks like crochet...kind of.  Make sure to head on over to my Instagram to see my little project and it's progress!  I'm sharing photos every week or so!  

What do you think?  Do you crochet?
