Twinsie Tuesday- Inspired by Your Hometown

Nothing to Disclose
Happy Twinsie Tuesday lovelies! I am truly on the countdown now! Two days until graduation! Yay! Excited doesn't even begin to describe the feelings I have right now. Anyway, the Twinsies are bringing you manciures inspired by our hometowns. I am a Southern girl and was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. To be honest, there isn't really that much that excites me about the city, so finding a source of inspiration was somewhat difficult. I went waaaaaay back to my high school. William Marion Raines Senior High. Yes, yes, and yes!!!! This school was pivotal in the community that I grew up in and anyone who knows anything about Raines can attest to the meaning of 'Viking Pride!' Unfortunately, the school has experienced some really rough times in the past decade or so and things aren't the same. Regardless, I love my school and the rich tradition that comes along with it.


Our school colors were Cardinal Red and Silver Grey. Yes...those are the official names. There was also a third accent color that was sometimes used in our sports uniforms and other things. The accent color is Royal Blue. I incorporated each of these colors into today's manicure using Enchanted Polish Mr. Burgundy (burgundy) and Presto Magic (blue) and Cirque Colors Sani (silver).


Each of these polishes had flawless application. I used Nail vinyls to create the 'V' accent nail. I decided to add the accent blue in a small amount, since that's how it was always used. I think the manicure came together well! If you can't tell, this is inspired by the tape and dot manis that Lakeisha is so great at doing! 

I'm really curious to see what the other Twinsies created based on their hometowns. Click the links below to find out!
