Twinsie Tuesday: Regional

31 Jul

I think I say this almost every week, but this was a tough one for me.  A regional polish.  Something that either comes from your area or is only available in your area.  I did some light Googling and came up with nothing.  I also had a bit of a privacy dilemma.  I’m very grateful for all my readers, but didn’t feel the need to divulge where I live to everyone.  Sooo…

I picked five states in my general area and repre;sented each one on a nail.  I may or may not, live in one of these states, but will admit that I do live in this region of the United States.  Is that vague enough for you? 😉  On my thumb we have Wyoming, nicknamed the equality state.  My nail is split right up the middle; two equal parts.  The two polishes I used are OPI DS Classic and Opulence.  My index finger is representative of Utah, the beehive state.  I used Sinful Colors This Is It and Nirvana to create a honeycomb design.

My middle finger represents Idaho, the gem state.  I used multifaceted Orly Space Cadet and stuck on a few rhinestones to act as my gems.  My ring finger is representative of Arizona, the Grand Canyon state.  I did a multi-bordered design that got darker with each color to try to show depth, a hole.  I started with Jordana Chiffon, then Sinful Colors Nirvana, Finger Paints Sketchy Character and finally China Glaze Liquid Leather.  My pinkie was the easiest.  Nevada is the silver state.  I didn’t even try to get creative with it.  I simply brushed on a couple coats of OPI DS Radiance, a gorgeous silver foil.

This ended up being a fun theme because I had to get very creative and put a clever twist on it.  My favorite designs are Utah and Arizona.  I want to try Arizona in other colors sometime.
