Twinsie Tuesday: Magazine Inspired

I had no idea how I wanted to polish this week's theme but I hope I did some sort of justice to the challenge! I wasn't sure if we were suppose to choose a mani that was featured in a magazine or an actual mani that looks like a magazine, but here is mine:

Can you tell which magazine this is from?

Did you guess it correct?

TIME Magazine!

Man! This mani was hard! I have never done the "frame" mani and I probably won't do it again because it's just too much free hand work and the lines aren't crisp enough for me to be content with it. I could've used the other method where I paint over the red, but oh well, I think it turned out not too shabby!

What do you think?

  1. I would never have guessed the magazine in fairness (we don't get it) but I love the mani

  2. I loved that you used Time for inspiration!

  3. I think you did a great job freehanding the edges. I have tried that once and only did one nail, but wow it takes some patience and a steady hand. I wondered if the method of painting the dark color first and then filling it it would be easier? My mind says no it would still take a careful and precise application to get the border look.

  4. beautiful manicure!
    good inspirational magazine.

  5. Very cute interpretation! I could never freehand a frame.

  6. I think this came out great! I probably could never get mine to look nearly as good.

  7. This looks amazing! I love the contrast of red and white.

  8. Love this interpretation! I have never attempted a frame mani--I know I would turn it into a disaster haha.

  9. Ah this is so clever! lol. I love it! :D

  10. What a creative idea for the theme.

  11. These are so awesome! I love this design!!

  12. This is such an incredibly fantastic idea! I haven't done a frame mani yet because I also worry about getting the lines crisp enough, but that's totally the kind of thing we all judge ourselves more harshly on, isn't it? I think these look great! ^_^

  13. Wow I love this! Such a good idea!
