Twinsie Tuesday: Recreate a Manicure Seen on a Celebrity

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all today?  It is yet again another Tuesday which means it is time for Twinsie Tuesday!  This week we are re-creating manicures which we have seen on a celebrity.  I thought this would be easy, but in all honesty it was one of the most difficult manicures to come up with!

First reason this was difficult was because celebrities rarely post close up photographs of their nails!  Do you know how annoying it is to squint at celebrities nails which are positioned on their hip while they pose for a photo?  You can barely see the nails, let alone if there is any nail art.

Then I came across this Buzzfeed article with a bunch of manicures Lily Allen has had.  She is the queen of funky and crazy nails!  Sure, many of them are studded and completely impossible for me to re-create, but she does have some awesome polished manicures!  

I decided on re-creating this neon yellow manicure.  Please excuse the lobster hands.  Yellow plus pale skin in the winter = no good.

Colors Used:
  • Orly - Glowstick
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
I think we need to take a second and talk about how bright Orly Glowstick is!  I cheated and did a base of white, followed by two coats of Glowstick, but with four coats you can get the same result without a base of white.  I just didn't want to do 4 coats on all 10 nails.  Talk about time consuming  Anywho, it is the brightest most amazing neon polish I own!  Everyone needs to get this!

Not sure what I think of this manicure.  I only wore it for one day which is very rare for me.  I can't put my finger on why I disliked it.  My polka dots were awesome, the yellow is amazing.  I think maybe it's the chevron-ish nails.  Hmmm

What do you think?  Liking this neon yellow?
