Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired By the Season

Not Sponsored/No Samples

Hi!


This week, our Twinsie Tuesday prompt was "Inspired by the Season". I thought about doing Autumnal leaves, but I decided to stick to the Halloween theme and try some Jack Skellington-inspired ones.

Unfortunately, I painted my nails arseways - I was supposed to paint them all white except the ring finger (black), but I did it the other way round. So I improvised and remembered the Jack nail from Sammy's latest Halloween nail art wheel - phew!


My stripes aren't perfect (especially on that middle nail, ew) but I have a couple of other polishes to swatch and we aren't really getting much daylight at the moment so I didn't get the chance to redo it. Everything looks so much worse on camera! It's not as noticeable in reality (I promise).

I used Rimmel White Hot Love and Black is Back then whacked a coat of Essie Matte About You on top. I used striping tape for the stripes and a dotting tool for Jack's face.


I can't wait to see what the others did! They put me to shame every week with their amazing skills, please do check out the links below to have a look at some great nail art.

Until next week! (wait for it.......it's either going to be epic or an epic fail........)

  1. I love your inspiration and the way this came out :) Ya cameras aren't very forgiving especially with nail art haha... And I've definitely painted my nails the wrong base color before too!

    1. Thank you! It's a nuisance, isn't it? I had them all painted and dry when I though......how am I going to paint a white face on a white nail :D x

  2. Photos are such a pain - many times my nails look just perfect, but then in high res on a computer monitor, I am horrified! I've decided that "arm's length" is just fine!

    1. It's shocking, everything looks okay in reality and then when I sit down to edit it's like......uh-oh... :D x

  3. I didn't even realize that the Jack face was inverted in color until you pointed it out! I immediately recognized him! :)
