Twinsie Tuesday: Classic

9:00:00 AM

Happy Tuesday polished world!  How are you all today?  It is time for yet another Twinsie Tuesday!  Our theme this week is "classic".  When I saw that this was our theme, the first thing that  came to mind were french tip manicures.  That to me is the most classic form of nail art.

Well, since I'm not a fan of the french tip on my own nails, I decided to go the classic of classic routes.  In my mind that was a swatch.  The first ever manicure wasn't crazy nail art, it was just a swatch....right?  Maybe?

The idea sounded good in my head at the time.  To make my swatch post less boring, I'm including two swatches of my current favorite polishes.

Let's start with China Glaze - Capacity to See Beyond.  I apologize for the crappy photos.  My lightbox is currently being repaired and these photos were taken in my room using a pillow case as a back drop and my lamp as the light.

Capacity to See Beyond is a brilliant blue polish which applies smoothly in two coats.  This is the polish I have been searching ages for and now am so happy to finally own.  I haven't been impressed with China Glaze in the longest time, but this polish really has put them back on my radar, especially because of the awesome formula.  I love it.

The next polish is Orly Frolic.  Again, crappy photos, I apologize.

I've had Frolic on my toes for two weeks now without a single chip.  This polish is just amazing.  Swatched above is two perfectly smooth coats.  My favorite purple pink polish I own.  I have some nail art coming up with this one later this week or early next.  Not sure yet since it's involved with my Bestie Twin Nails with Fashion Footing again.

What do you think of my swatches?  I probably should have picked a classic red.....

Don't forget to check out the other Twinsie's posts!  I can't wait to see how they interpreted the theme!
