Twinsie Tuesday: Grey and Gold



Twinsie Tuesday again! This week's prompt is "Grey and Gold." I really like how this prompt only specified colors and was otherwise open :) I decided to do some simple stamping for this mani. I really love the swirls and stars in this stamping image... it reminds me of a jewelry box I had when I was little!


My base color is from Cosmetic Arts but unfortunately is unlabeled :( I stamped with Color Club "Editorial" (I think... this one was unlabeled too!) and Pueen SE03B


My unlabeled Cosmetic Arts base is a nice dark charcoal grey. Formula was amazing... an easy one coater! If you come across this in a discount store I highly recommend it! Since these polishes didn't come with shade labels I decided to nickname them myself so I can remember them all instead of having 50+ unnamed polishes. I nicknamed this one "Stella." I'm really enjoying naming my polishes... I'm definitely less annoyed about them being unlabeled now haha. Please let me know if you can identify the polish!

Color Club Editorial is an olive green/gold duochrome similar to Chanel Peridot. The stamping isn't as visible as I would like. It is pretty though when the light hits it and you can see the stamping :) I could also see the duochrome shift in certain lighting but I wasn't able to capture it on camera :( Here's another picture with less glare so you can see the stamping more clearly. 



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

  12. I agree that it's a nice prompt when you just get a colour combination to go with. I think you chose a great grey to go with that gold.
