Twinsie Tuesday: Recreate a fellow Twinsie's mani you've loved

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is to recreate a fellow Twinsie's manicure that I loved. There is a lot of designs that I love but I decided to recreate a manicure by Bridget from A Painted Nail. I choose the manicure she created for the theme, Polish Received In A Swap. I didn't copy it exactly but I did my best at recreating it on my nails.

Orchid and Silver Chevron Nail Art

I used Essie Splash Of Grenadine on all the nails. I created the chevron strips by using tape and a pair of chevron craft scissors. I applied two of the chevron strips on the ring and middle nail. I painted Sally Hansen Celeb City on top of it and before the polish dried, I quickly peeled off the tape. For the rest of the nails, I dotted on two dots with a dotting tool using the same silver polish. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Its been ages since I've done a chevron manicure so these don't look all that great. Hopefully with more practice, my next one will turn out better. What do you think?

  9. Very nice - you did such neat zig zags. What tape do you use? Just Scotch tape - or do you have a secret tape weapon?

    1. Thanks Claire. I just used regular old scotch tape. It worked okay but not the best.
