Twinsie Tuesday: Mani Order From Your Significant Other/BFF/Family Member

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is a mani order from another person. I asked my sister what manicure she wanted me to create and she said an ikat design. Its one nail art design I haven't done yet and she's always heard me talk about not doing one. I got help to create these nails by this post, Nail Art Tutorial - Ikat Nails from Nails by Kayla Shevonne.

Grey and Green Ikat Print Nail Art

I used OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam! on all the nails. For the ikat design, I used a white striper from Born Pretty Store, Essie Mojito Madness, and a black striper from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

For my first try at them, I think my ikat design turned out great. The tutorial really helped me out too. What do you think?
