Twinsie Tuesday Duo-Chrome

Good morning, dear readers! :D

Today is Twinsie Tuesday!

For today's theme, we were to use a duo-chrome polish.

I chose Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Purple Potion, which is a lovely purple with blue shimmer throughout it.  I love the colours and the name! :D  I put a coat of O.P.I's I Juggle... Men over-top, which added a touch of duo-chrome shimmer.  I then put some Essence Where is the Party? on a plastic bag, waited until it dried, then cut out strips.  I then peeled the strips off and stuck them to my nails, and added a top coat. :D

So I decided to clip and file my nails down yesterday, as they were getting to the length where they start to warp and grow downwards instead of outwards, and I kinda clipped off more than I meant to. XD  So that is why I am rocking some nubbin's right now.  Also, for some  reason my skin around my nails has been super peel-y and dry lately (you'd think with all the humidity we have been having around here my skin would be super hydrated), so I apologize for that.

Don't forget to check out these other awesome Twinsie Tuesday blogs!! :D

  16. Those nubbins look awesome! I know how you feel though..you feel naked without the girls at their full length!

  17. Very cool colour combo. There's something of a futuristic vibe to it, I think. I love Sally's Xtreme wear. Their clear base coat has been my clear polish of choice for at least a couple of years now.

    Thank you very, very much for your splendidly nice comment (compliment!) on my vintage outfit post this week, you've got me blushing like a rose over here! :)
