Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Jewelry

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by jewelry. When I was younger, I used to wear this small sheep shaped jade stone as a necklace. The longer I wore it, the more green it turned when it once was a whitish green at first. So for the nail art, I wanted to try creating some jade like nails.

I used Essie Absolutely Shore on all the nails. I used the saran wrap method to apply on American Apparel Office, Essie Mojito Madness, and China Glaze Starboard. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I thought these turned out pretty great. It does remind of a Chinese jade so much that I'm thinking of recreating the design in various colors now. What do you think?

  2. Wow, this is awesome! It looks like real jade! I am also envious of your saran wrap technique-- I always feel like I blob too much on my nails when I do it!

    1. Thanks! I make sure to dab most of the excess off before I start dabbing on my nails.
