Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by Your BFF

Hi!


Twinsie Tuesday is a collaboration between several amazing nail bloggers. It has been running for a while, and I've always loved following Róisín's posts to see what she comes up with, so when the opportunity cropped up to join the group, I applied and was over the moon to be accepted.

This has all taught me one thing - my nail art skills are SO RUSTY. Like, rusty nail in rusty toolbox in rusty iron shed rusty. I could just about remember how to use striping tape here. I'd love to be one of those people who keeps everything glam and classy, but alas - I am all about that tack, so for this theme I wanted something fun.

I don't really have a BFF - my husband is my best friend but I wasn't going to start attempting beer or tractors on my nails, so I totally cheated on my first week and went for a famous pair of BFFs instead.

Behold, Bert and Ernie. And the duck.


Why does everything look so awful on camera!! I promise this isn't as bad in reality, my stripes ran slightly after I applied Essie's Matte About You topcoat. It looks much better if you squint.


If you want to see some ACTUAL skills, please do check out the other ladies in the group. They all do much, much more presentable things than this. Hopefully my nail art will improve as the weeks go on!

  3. Ah those are brilliant! It's so colourful! Fun nails are way more interesting than "glamourous" ones. It's a great mood-lifter too :) .xx

  14. Oh my god I love this! I can barely paint a single shade, let alone attempt nail art. I leave all my manicures to the professionals :-)
