Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is "Inspired by Art." I'm not very good at freehand so I decided to try and re-create this circular splatter art by Corbin Henry
I started with two coats of Emperor's New Clothes from the Deborah Lippmann Her Majesty Holiday 2016 collection. This is a 9 piece collection that only came in minis I believe. I only have 2 unfortunately (re-gifted from a friend but I never say no to free polish!)
Formula and coverage were pretty good. You can see a bit of my nail line on my ring and pinky but this wasn't noticeable in real life. The mini brush was better than I was expecting! This shade is a bit too dark for my skin tone though so I'll probably only use this as a base for nail art. Shown here without top coat.
To mimic this look, I tried the sugar spun technique (basically put a few drops of polish out, wait for it to start to dry and thicken, and then stretch the strings of polish across the nails) but instead of stretching the strings horizontally across the nails I tried to go in circles. I think my thumb turned out a lot better than my other nails. I guess maybe I should have let it dry longer? I left this without top coat to maintain the texture. EDIT: I forgot to mention, black is Avon Rapid Black
