Twinsie Tuesday- Interlocking Design

Press Sample
Happy Twinsie Tuesday lovelies!!! The Jordans have ONE MORE DAY left in Florida before our big move to New England. OMG.... I cannot believe the time has finally come! I'm truly excited! Today, the Twinsies are showing off some interlocking nail art designs. I recently began a blogger relationship with Milani Cosmetics and my first press samples consist of their entire newly revamped nail polish line, the Color Statement Collection.  Since there are over 30 polishes in the collection, I will be breaking them over time. This post gives me a chance to feature two of the shades and the quick dry topcoat.

Let's begin by looking at the polishes alone. First, we have Mint Crush. This is a mint green creme with some blueish undertones. It applied easily in just two coats. It seemed to dry fairly quickly on its own as well. I added one coat of the Milani Color Statement Quick Dry Topcoat.

The second polish I am showing you today is Imperial Purple. Yes, please!! This one is a beautiful soft dusty purple creme with an absolutely PERFECT formula! It is a one coater, but two coats and the quick dry topcoat were used here. There is literally nothing bad to say about this polish. I love it!

When looking at tutorials for the interlocking design (yes, I needed a tutorial), I realized there are so many options for colors and methods. I quickly realized that these two polishes would compliment one another perfectly for this look. I began with two coats of Mint Crush. Then I tape of a diagonal section of the nails and added one coat of Imperial Purple

To make the interlocking design, I used the large end of a dotting tool and applied dots in the opposite colors, overlapping the split. I used a smaller end of the dotting tool to add a small dot to the center of the larger ones. One coat of the Milani Quick Dry Topcoat was used to seal the deal.

The new quick dry topcoat had a really good formula and a slightly thick consistency,which I love in a topcoat. The topcoat leaves your nails super shiny and it seems to dry in a decent amount of time. Another bonus is that it did not smear the nail art design when applied. #winning

So what do you think of my first attempt at an interlocking design manicure? Have you had the chance to try any of the new Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquers?
