Twinsie Tuesday: Go To Nail Design

11 Mar

Twinsie TuesdayI had a hard time thinking of a go to polish because I don’t really have one. I finally decided that one of the polishes I grab for the most is Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refresh-mint. Beautiful color, beautiful application. I kicked it up a notch by showcasing my go to nail design as well. I haven’t done leopard in a while (that I can remember), but it’s almost always one of the first designs that comes to mind when I’m brainstorming. Although I did blatantly copy this design from Eeeek! Nail Polish!

For this go to nail design I used the aforementioned Wet ‘n Wild I Need a Refrsh-mint and OPI My Vampire is Buff along with pink and brown acrylics.

Twinsie Tuesday: Grunge Nail Design

4 Mar

Twinsie TuesdayI kept thinking, haven’t we already done a grunge nail design theme? But then I remembered, that’s what I did for our Sweet Sixteen post. I have to admit that I quite enjoyed the grunge era. I laugh at the pictures of myself from back then. What were we all thinking? Oy.

For this look I copied the technique Sarah from Chalkboard Nails used here. I like her color choices better, but I just built upon what I was already wearing which was Julep Alma, a mustard yellow creme.

This was a whole Julep mani for me. Just because. On top of Alma, I used Julep Heather, Annie, Fiona, Ingrid and Brandt. I’d forgotten how many great Julep colors I have. I need to play with them more.

Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Nail Polish Brand

25 Feb

Twinsie TuesdayI can’t really say that I have a favorite nail polish brand, but I have the most OPIs, so I guess that means it’s my favorite. Right? That’s how I chose to interpret it.

OPI_mani (7) WLcopyFor this design I started with OPI My Vampire is Buff, did some polka dots with OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, sponged on a little OPI Outback Aphrodisiac (which was crusted shut and was really, really difficult to open!) Although it’s not the original, I recently picked up some OPI My Private Jet and used that as an accent color. It’s pretty and gives a hint at how amazing the original must have been. This mani was so easy I decided to do all 10 digits. I didn’t use a base coat so we’ll see how long it lasts.

Twinsie Tuesday: Valentine’s Day Nails

11 Feb

Twinsie TuesdayI feel like I got a little carried away with these Valentine’s Day nails. I should’ve stopped at the pinkie and ring fingers. I like all of the aspects of this mani, just maybe not all together? I don’t know. Whatever.

Valentine's Day Nails
For this design I used OPI My Vampire is Buff, OPI Pink Friday, Sinful Colors Nirvana, OPI DS Reserve and Radiance, Sally Hansen Black Out and a few acrylics.

A couple hours later…

Valentine's Day Nails
Ahhh… That’s much better. I just couldn’t stand the crazy business that was happening. I like this so much better! It feels retro to me. Do you agree that the retake is better?

Twinsie Tuesday: Go Red for Women Nails

4 Feb

Twinsie TuesdayFebruary is women’s heart disease awareness month, so today we’re doing Go Red for Women nails. February 7 is also National Wear Red Day to help raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. You can get more info here.

Go Red for Women NailsI did Valentine manis on my mom and three of my sisters during the Superbowl, so that very much got me in the Valentine mani mood. These were time consuming because of the black outline (which I did on all 10 fingers), but I’m hoping I can wear this design for the rest of the week to make up for the time I spent doing it.

Go Red for Women NailsMy red polish was Sinful Colors GoGo Girl, the black and white were acrylics and I topped it off with Chill Zone top coat.
