Twinsie Tuesday: Copycat Take 2

5 Mar

A while back we did a copycat theme week. Today is take two.

SaranWrap_gradient (4) WLcopyI was given Chelsea’s Nailed Blog to find my inspiration this week. I chose to do her Saran Wrap Mani.

SaranWrap_gradient (7) WLcopyOf course I had to put my own twist on it and try it as a gradient. After doing my base color of CND Asphalt, I painted half of my nail with OPI Do You Lilac It and the other half with Sinful Colors Innocent. Then went to town with my Saran Wrap. It made for a cool effect. What do you think of this Saran wrap gradient?

Twinsie Tuesday: Ruffian

26 Feb

Twinsie Tuesday, so good to me.  In case you didn’t click on that link, you’re supposed to sing that line to the tune of Monday, Monday by The Mamas & The Papas.  I have no idea why that popped in to my head.  It’s a bit before my time.  Anyway, this week we are doing Ruffians.

Ruffian_purple (6) WLcopySometimes I just open up my drawers of polish and pick a color, then start building a manicure around that polish. My first pick was Color Club Fashion Addict and I decided to pair it up with Sinful Colors Amethyst. Both beautiful purples. Fashion Addict is a great holo to add to your collection if you can track it down.

Ruffian_purple (8) WLcopyOf course I can’t leave well enough alone and had to add a little viney florish in purple acrylic. I like that since it’s tone on tone, it blends in a bit and you just get a little peek of it here and there.

Twinsie Tuesday: Polka Dots or Stripes

19 Feb

This week’s theme is polka dots or stripes. Or why not both?  It looks very Easter egg-ish, yeah?  I’ve got spring on the brain.  And the fact that all the store are already putting out Easter candy isn’t helping.

StripedPolkaDots (3) WLcopyI used Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refresh-mint and Milani Pink Hottie along with white acrylic.

Twinsie Tuesday: Marching Orders

12 Feb

Happy Tuesday ladies!  This week’s theme is a fun one.  We were paired up and each had to give another Twinsie their orders for today’s mani.  Elizabeth from Did My Nails gave me my marching orders.  She wanted me to do something based on my favorite movie.FavoriteMovie (8) WLcopyI’m not going to tell you what movie this is.  I want to see if anyone can solve the riddle.  I’m not one to re-watch movies really, but I’ve seen this one many, many times.  Love it!

FavoriteMovie (11) WLcopyOn my thumb we have a cow print done with Sally Hansen White On and China Glaze Liquid Leather. On my index finger is a pineapple done with OPI The “It” Color, Sinful Colors Nirvana, Jordana Orangsicle, China Glaze Starboard and OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window. My middle finger is a tree done with Essie Borrowed and Blue, Sinful Colors Nirvana, China Glaze Starboard and OPI Uh-Oh Rolls Down the Window. My ring finger was a pain in the butt! I’ve done newsprint nails before and not had problems with them, but I had to redo it like four times. I used Julep Annette as my base color for the newsprint. And finally on my pinkie we have plain old Sally Hansen White On.

FavoriteMovie (20) WLcopyFirst one to guess the right movie gets a gold star! 🙂

**UPDATE: For those of you who didn’t solve the riddle and didn’t find the correct answer in the comments, the movie represented is 50 First Dates.

Twinsie Tuesday: School Colors

5 Feb

When I think of school spirit my mind immediately goes back to high school. But maybe that’s because my post high school education consists of graduating from a trade school that didn’t have a mascot and colors.

SchoolSpirit (10) WLcopyI was a T-Bird and as you can see, our school colors were orange, white and blue. According to our fight song the official colors were orange and white, but we got the blue worked in there somehow. Not very original school colors. I’d bed that there’s at least one of my fellow twinsies that is sporting the same colors.

SchoolSpirit (14) WLcopyI got brave and tried the explosion again. I think this is the third or fourth time I’ve attempted it. I used painters tape this time. The lines aren’t perfect, but it’s by far my best explosion yet.  Of course as soon my top coat started to set, I gouged my ring finger nail with my other hand.  AAARRRGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so mad!!  It was completely lifted and rolled up.  I attempted to unroll it with a toothpick then smooth it out with my wet finger.  It actually looks pretty good compared to what I started with.  I used Jordana Orangsicle and Smooth Blue and Sally Hansen White On.
