Twinsie Tuesday: Recreate a fellow Twinsie's mani



Today's Twinsie Tuesday prompt is to recreate a fellow Twinsie's mani. I decided to recreate Amber / Nails Like Lace's mani inspired by her Jord wood watch. I've actually been eyeing this Jord watch I really love the prominent and irregular wood grain of the Zebrawood! 

What I Used:

Index: Avon Moonbeam (2-3 coats) + China Glaze Fairy Dust
Middle - Pinky: Color Club - Overboard (2 coats) + Born Pretty Store Studs





I haven't used any charms on my nails in a while... I should use them more often. It's a really easy way to add interest to an otherwise plain mani! The back of these square gems was flat, but since they are so small I didn't have any issues with them sticking up. I lost the gem on my right middle finger on the second day. The other 5 stayed on for 4 days though before I removed this mani. The gems come in a pack with other charms and are good value. Don't forget to use my code SL10K31 for 10% off!

To stick on the studs I applied top coat, waited until it was about half dry, and then stuck on the studs. I found it easiest to pick up the studs with my finger (like you would pick up a contact lens) and then touch my semi-wet nail to the stud (to avoid accidentally dropping the stud in the wrong spot). Since the back is flat you can slide it around a bit if you need to adjust though. I finished by applying another coat of top coat seal in the gems. 




Don't forget to show the other Twinsies some love!

  8. You've just had me rooting through all my studs and gems to see if I have clear square rhinestones like this. And I don't! So, of course, now I need some!

  10. Honestly just adding a stud or a rhinestone in the spot is always my clutch nail art! It's so easy to do but looks so polished. Love this ruby red polish.
