Bestie Twin Nails with Fashion Footing: Round 19!

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing??  I meant to have a post up yesterday but I felt really under the weather Thursday night when I planned on getting it all ready.  Then all day yesterday I felt like I was beat up from not feeling well the day before.  Ugh, just annoying.  I blame the weather.  This abnormal warmth then right down to 30 degrees the next needs to stop.

Today is Round 19 of Bestie Twin Naills with Fashion Footing!  This month we decided to do a festive Christmas manicure.  Amanda took a gander through my Christmas Nail Art Idea board on Pinterest and liked this Christmas tree manicure by Sensationails4U on Instagram.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Salon Perfect - He's With Me
  • China Glaze - Bring on the Bubbly
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Zoya - Chita
  • INM - Northern Lights
I wasn't too fond of this manicure at first, but now I'm really starting to love it, especially now after editing the photos!  The Christmas tree was a pain in the bootie to do, so that's why I really wasn't a fan of it.  I originally tried to paint the trees on using acrylic paint, but for the life of me I couldn't get the tree to look right.  This was very odd to me because I have never had a problem using acrylics to create art.

So I went to my polish drawers and found Chita.  I always have luck when it comes to using the Pixie Dust polishes for art.  They're easy to work with, maneuver around, and dry fast.  AKA perfect nail art polish!  After two tries, I was able to get my little tree!

I am absolutely in love with the red nails.  I'm not a huge fan of red, but He's With Me is just gorgeous!  As I said in a previous post, He's With Me is a dupe of China Glaze Ruby Pumps.  With an added top coat of INM Northern Lights, it is beyond gorgeous.  I almost can see myself doing all 10 nails like this.  Almost....

And I'm so happy to be holding a bottle of my favorite white - My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I hit the jackpot and found a beauty supply store which had 6 bottles for sale.  During Black Friday, this store ran a 3 for $16 deal on OPI polishes!  Soooo all 6 bottles became mine.  Well 3 are for Amanda, 3 are for me.  Added to my extra bottle I already have, I am now safe to use this polish again because of my back up of 4 bottles.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Like the tree??

Until next time, <3
