Today is Twinsie Tuesday! (I would have liked to schedule this post for 9:00 a.m., but whenever I try to do that the posts don't post! :( So since my sleeping schedule is all screwy, I'm posting this now in order to make it on time!)
For today's post, we entered our names in Elfster, which randomly (and secretly) drew another Twinsie's name. We were then to pick a manicure they had done in the past, and emulate it. :D
I got two Twinsie's names, so I have two manicures to show you. :D
First up: Tara!! (Today is her birthday, so don't forget to stop by her blog and send her some birthday wishes!! :D HAPPY BIRTHDAY TARA!!! ^_^)
I really liked the fire manicure she did for the Hunger Games (here), and so I did my own version of it, giving a nod to her design. While I did not have the same polish she had, I used a similar glitter by Color Club. I used black paint to freehand the design.
Next up: Elizabeth!! :D
I thought that her dandelion manicure (here) was really(!!) adorable, and so I had to do one too!! :D Unfortunately I am not happy with how mine turned out, but you live and you learn. XD
I used China Glaze Sea Spray for the base, and white and black acrylic paint for the dandelions.
The flowers didn't turn out the way I wanted, my top coat bubbled and it also streaked the paint. Sigh!! Thankfully I used a glue basecoat and was able to peel this manicure off really fast (and easily!:D).
On a brighter note, don't forget to check out these awesome blogs for more Twinsie Tuesday posts, and please check out the original posts which have the designs I emulated! :D
