Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by your Pet

https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif


Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your child or pet. Since I don't have kids I went with my fur baby Molly. I adopted Molly from the SPCA so I'm not sure what breed she is exactly since the SPCA wasn't sure either. She's probably a poodle / shih tzu / Maltese mix. 




She spends most of her time sleeping...


For my mani I was inspired by her fur. It is mostly dark grey mottled with bits of black and white. I used the saran wrap technique to represent the curly, poofy texture of her fur.

I started with one coat of China Glaze Stone Cold as my base. Then I used the saran wrap technique with white polish (Layla No. 23). And then the saran wrap technique again with black polish (Sally Hansen Black Heart). I ended up with too much black on a few nails and went in with white again. Here it is cleaned up before adding top coat.





The top coat really smoothes out the design! The end result reminds me of Black Milk leggings :) I like the contrast although I think there's maybe too much white here... More white than Molly actually has. But then again if the whole mani was dark grey/black it would be hard to see the design.


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

    1. Thanks! Hehe she looks warm but she's always cold... She hates going outside in the winter and she'll try to hide when it's walk time

  11. I can't believe a manicure has just made me Google "Black Milk leggings". They're probably really well known in Australia, but it was a phrase I have never heard!
