Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Child In Your Life


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today??  It's Tuesday which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday.  I apologize for skipping last week.  I was a tad under the weather again and really didn't feel well enough to create a manicure.  I'm back though and feeling pretty well.  Okay, maybe I'm a tad stuffy and my sinuses are crappy, but what can you do?

Today for Twinsie Tuesday we are creating manicures which are inspired by a child in your life.  I don't have any children, but I do have two nephews and one little niece.  Last year I did this awesome superhero manicure inspired by my nephews, and was thinking of revisiting it but I wasn't really feeling it.

Then it hit me.  Years ago when I first started with my polish addiction I was so jealous of all these girls with their rainbow glitter polishes.  I went on the search and I found myself a bottle of Ulta Pinata Yada Yada.  I ran home and I used it on top of mint polish for a pedicure.  My oldest nephew saw my nails and pointed and said he liked them, to which I responded "it's Pinata Yada Yada".  For months and months later, every time he saw a glitter on my toes he'd point and ask "Is that Yada Yada??"  It was the cutest thing ever and it's one of those stories I'm never going to forget.

So I dug out my bottle of Pinata Yada Yada and created a manicure!




Colors Used:
  • Orly - Gumdrop
  • Orly - French White
  • Ulta - Pinata Yada Yada
I honestly had no idea what I was going to do when I sat down with that bottle of glitter.  Luckily, after staring into my Melmer, I found my trusty bottle of Orly Gumdrop which is a perfect color to match any glitter, especially a rainbow one!  Pinata Yada Yada is such a pretty polish with gold, blue, silver, pink, red, copper, you name it multi sized glitters.  It applies pretty well in one coat, but I did have to fill in a few blank spaces.  I need to start using it more!
 


Do you like my new bottle shot photos?  I'm leaning away from my trusty INM Out the Door bottle and trying to use the actual polishes I used in the manicure.  You can kind of see from this bottle of Gumdrop how old it really is.  Half filled, has some purple polish dripping down the side from when I used it for marbling.  The top is kind of crusted.  I need to get a back up!

What do you think?  Like this look?  Do you own Yada Yada? :)
