Twinsie Tuesday: Rainbow

18 Sep

On this episode of Twinsie Tuesday we’re sporting rainbows or yay-bows if you’re my two year old.  Being that we’re on the cusp of autumn and it’s not really rainbow season (if there is such a thing) I attempted to go with slightly more autumnal colors for my yaybow.

I’m not impressed with myself.  This looked so much better in my head.  I wish you could see the mental image I have.  This definitely does not live up to my expectations.  I sponged on some Sinful Colors Alpine Snow to act as a base behind my colors and to peek out as a cloud.  My rainbow is made up of OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window, Essie Alligator Purse, Zoya Petra with Sinful Colors Amethyst over the top because Petra was too dark, the unnamed yellow dollar store Color Craze polish and Revlon Chic.

Once I got all my stripes done and decided that it was a failure, but didn’t want to start over, I added some glitter to see if that would help.  I don’t know why.  I never do that.  I know glitter is not the way to resuscitate a dying mani.  Oh well.

    I appreciate where you were going with this and like the little bit of life saving glitter.

    While I am sorry this did not turn out how you pictured it in your head (I HATE that!!!), I still think this is interesting and fun. You always come up with creative designs that I realy enjoy 🙂

    I love the idea of an autumn rainbow! It may not have come out the way you wanted, but I love the originality and the inspiration. ^_^

    Great idea – and I think the glitter does lift the whole thing a bit. Nice thinking outside of the box, that’s awesome 🙂

    I;m sorry it wasn’t quite what you planned, but its still kinda cute ❤ I have used glitter to try and revive a fail before…it never seems to help, lol.

    I think this looks great! I hate it though when something doesn’t come out the way you envisioned it–frustrating!!

    I think this came out great!
