Twinsie Tuesday: Fall to Winter Transitional

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  Its unseasonably warm here lately.  I almost think we might skip winter.  Usually we have snow by now, but so far nothing and it's in the 50s.  I'm not complaining.  I was able to put all my Christmas lights up on the house without wearing gloves and  winter coat.  It was quite pleasant.

It's Tuesday which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday.  This week we are sharing manicures using a Fall to Winter transition polish.  Since the weather here isn't seeming like it's transitioning, I haven't really been thinking much about winter manicures or winter polishes.  So I started looking around Pinterest and Instagram for ideas.  I started to see dozens of navy blue manicures and I thought that navy is a perfect transition color.  I always correlate all shades of blue with winter, and anything dark for Fall.  Therefore, I think navy is  perfect transition polish.  Right?  Maybe?

Today's manicure is inspired by this awesome dry marble by JustJan26 on Instagram.  I've been loving all the dry marble manicures I've seen, but I never had the guts to try them myself.  After seeing this one I decided to give it a try.  Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Sailor
  • Orly - Mirrorball
  • Orly - French White
  • INM - Northern Lights
I love Zoya Sailor.  It's such a pretty, rich, navy blue polish which applies perfectly in two coats.  The added top coat of INM Northern Lights really adds a new dimension to an already gorgeous polish!  I was a little hesitant on adding the Northern Lights but I am so happy that I did.

I am super pleased with how my dry marble turned out as well!  I started off with a base of white polish.  While my second coat of the white was still wet, I dripped a few drips of Sailor and Mirrorball on the nail.  I then very quickly used a toothpick and swirled the colors together.  I wish I had a little more Mirrorball, but it still looks great.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Have you tried to dry marble??
