Twinsie Tuesday: Floral Mani

You know what day of the week it is! That's right! Twinsie Tuesday! And this weeks theme is: floral mani.

Alright. I'm not much of a nail artist but I do enjoy doing it. So hopefully, my mani will be as awesome as my Twinsies'!


Red poppies. Yay or nay?

For the base I used Essie Looking for Love. It's the perfect jelly grey with lots of blue undertones, so technically it's bley, if you know what I mean! However, I LOVE it! It was a bit streaky with 2 coats but the 3 one covered it perfectly! Looking for Love is actually my first time using and I was really impressed with this one. As you may or may not know, Essie is one brand that I am not too fond of.

For the stems, flowers and buds I used acrylic paint. As you can tell, I almost always use acrylic paint to avoid any smearing and/or smudging.

So what do you think?

  2. Totally seconding Amanda--these are so, so pretty!! Beautiful job and the colours are perfect. I'm pleasantly surprised by that Essie too! Pale Essies are so often a nightmare to apply, but I'll definitely be on the lookout for this one. It looks fabulous!

    I actually toyed with the idea of doing some poppies on white, and now I'm so glad I didn't--they would have looked all kinds of ridiculous in comparison. >_<
