Twinsie Tuesday - Tip Nail Art

Good morning polished world!  As I write this post, it's midnight and I'm not in the greatest of moods.  I had the cutest idea for a manicure that crashed and burned.  I spent close to an hour and a half trying to get it to work and it just was a waste.  So now I am attempting to paint at least a base coat on my nails because my nails are peeling thanks to this awful weather and they can't be naked.  Hopefully by the time this post goes live I will be well rested and not as upset over my disasticure.

I for sure am not upset over the manicure I am posting now for Twinsie Tuesday.  The prompt for today is Tip Nail Art.  I interpreted this as nail art that is only at the tip of the nail.  Originally I was going to do some sort of French Tip design with art around it, but I think my nails look weird with a French Tip because of  how short they are.  So, I kind of went crazy.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Sinful Colors - Mad About Hue
  • Sinful Colors - Bright Lucite
  • INM - Northern Lights
  • Orly Instant Artist Black
Kind of awesome looking right?  You can never go wrong with a gradient, glitter, or a leopard print.  I started off with a base coat of white polish, then created a gradient using Mad About Hue, a pastel purple, and Bright Lucite, a baby blue.  To even out my gradient, I used INM Northern Lights which is just amazing.  Love the little holo pieces.  Then with my nail art brush, I used my Orly Instant Artist Polish and drew on the leopard outline.  Finished with a top coat and love.

I just love this manicure.  I have not one single complaint.  It's one of the best gradient's I've done and my leopard print is looking pretty dang good.  I don't know but it's making me feel a tad better looking at it after the horrible mess up tonight. Sometimes after I mess up a manicure I feel like I should give up and that I really don't know what I'm doing, but successes such as this one bring me back to my nail art loving center.

What do you think?  Liking the look?
