Twinsie Tuesday: Home Town Inspiration

29 Apr

Twinsie Tuesday
Another repost. :/ I know, I know. It’s pretty cruddy of me. I’m having some difficulty making time for manis when there is so much to be done at home. Nail polish has been pushed to the back burner. I don’t feel ready to call it quits yet though. I’m also struggling with today’s theme. I’m very private and haven’t even said where I live. I couldn’t easily come up with a mani that represented my home town that wouldn’t give too much away. I still live in the same county as the town where I grew up so I feel that I still need to keep that quiet.

The mani I’m reposting today is the regional one we did almost 2 years ago. I themed each nail after a different state in the region I live in. You can read the original post here.

Twinsie Tuesday: Matte, Gloss Combo

22 Apr

Twinsie TuesdayI have to admit that today’s mani is a repost. I generally do my manis the day before a post is due and yesterday was so busy I didn’t have time to paint my nails. I did however prime and paint some large shelves and spent almost three hours putting together a shoe cabinet from Ikea. That’s the last time I buy a piece of furniture from Ikea. Assemby is brutal.

Twinsie Tuesday: Gifted Polish

15 Apr

Twinsie TuesdayMy mother-in-law got me one of the fantastic Color Club Halo Hues for Christmas and yes, this is the first time I have used the polish. I don’t know why it took me so long. It’s beautiful! The problem is, there is no label on the bottle. I don’t know if this is Harp On It or Blue Heaven. These are my best guesses anyway.

Holo_jonqal (1) WLcopyI was too lazy to pull out my striping brushes, so I used one of my art polishes to make the jonqal design. It’s not quite as crisp as I would’ve liked it to be, but the black is still the perfect compliment to the blue holo.

Holo_jonqal (11) WLcopyIt’s crazy that the holo doesn’t even show up under incandescent light, but is a crazy rainbow in the sunlight. I wish it looked like that all the time. So pretty!

Twinsie Tuesday: Glitter Topper Polish

8 Apr

Twinsie TuesdayI’m not a huge glitter topper polish fan, so I really had to study my stash to find one that I wanted to feature. Way back in one of the corners of a drawer was Lynnderella Connect the Dots. Who doesn’t love this one?

ConnectTheDots_yellow_blue (3) WLcopyThe colors I chose to use were inspired by my house. With a yellow house and a bright blue door, I think it’s safe to say I live in the happiest house in the neighborhood. I’m sure when our house was being built the neighbors thought we were crazy.

The polishes I used were Julep Lexie and Dianna.

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Purse

1 Apr

Twinsie TuesdayA mani inspired by my purse would be a super boring mani. My purse is plain old white. No bling or anything fancy. I started out painting my nails white, but it was just too drab. I polished over it with OPI My Vampire is Buff then sponged on a gradient with Sinful Colors Hazard. It’s very springy. I think I could have stopped with the Buff though. It’s so creamy.
