For the longest time Misfit and I have been talking about doing “twin nails” which seems to be the latest craze in the nail art community. I have always shied away from it. Nobody wants to be directly compared to a pro when they feel like a novice themselves, you know? I finally decided to ditch my hangups about not feeling good enough and do something I love with someone who taught me to love this! Enough about my self esteem issues, onto the nails!
We took turns picking the polishes and tools that we would both use for our manis. We only discussed this and no specifics about what we would be doing. This post is a big reveal for both of us. I have no idea what Misfit has done and visa versa. This is what we chose:
- Sinful Colors I Love You
- Tip Top Armour Plate
- Right hand image on PUEEN 44
- Clear or purple rhinestones of any shape
I started off with my usual base of Tip Top Miraculous Results. I painted 2 coats of Tip Top Armour Plate on my thumb and pinky nails. I painted 2 coats of Sinful Colors I Love You on my index, middle and ring nails. Once that was dry I stamped with Tip Top Armour Plate and the right hand image on my PUEEN 44 plate onto my middle and ring nails. On my index nail I used a clear heart rhinestone that I found in a nail wheel I bought from Planet Nails. I thought a heart rhinestone would fit nicely with a polish named ‘I Love You’ 🙂 I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite. The result:
I didn’t know how to feel about this mani. I think I love it. Somehow the stamping looks blurry in all the pics I took, but I think it has to do with the glitter underneath and the way the light is reflecting off the silver stamping rather than a problem with the camera focusing, everything else is clear. Or the camera was really confused by all the sparkly 😉 I Love You is simply gorgeous! I used a beautiful little compact mirror I got in a China Glaze gift set as my prop for this image. I was really in need of a nice mirror and now I have one! You might see it again in future 😉
