Twinsie Tuesday: Swap

23 Oct

Today’s theme is a polish from your first swap.  I have a confession to make.  I have yet to sew up a swap.  That made today difficult for me.  There’s really no other way to interpret the theme either.  Sooo…

I decided to play with the first polishes that I bought from a blog sale.  A bit of a stretch, I know.  I considered flat out lying and making something up, but I have morals.  Thou shalt not lie people.  🙂

Anywho.  I’m sporting Julep Molly (red) and Julep Annette here.  I love Molly!  I can’t really say how it’s different from the other classic reds I have, but for some reason it is.  It’s beautiful.  I decided to play with these a bit and try to give the illusion that my nails are filed to a point (rather than the actual square shape) by freehanding in Annette over the top.  Did I achieve my goal?  Do they look pointy?  Hmm… I’m not convinced, but like the design nonetheless.  This color combo reminds me of way back in the day when I used to work the jewelery counter at Target.  We had to wear red shirts and khaki pants.  That’s where I met the hubs by the way.

    This is cute!! It’s a stretch, but it totally makes sense to use polishes from a blog sale.

    Excellent alternate plan, and wow, this really is a gorgeous red! Like you said, there are tons of similar ones out there, but when you hit on the right one for your taste and skin tone it just stands out. 🙂

    Nice twist on the theme. And I’m happy to fix that swap problem for you. 🙂

    Target is one of my former jobs. Great alternative to use a polish bought in a blog sale.
