Twinsie Tuesday- Fandom

Happy Twinsie Tuesday Polished Babes!! Today the Twinsies bring you fandom manicures. Umm...so, I'll just assume you're like me and have absolutely no idea what that means. After asking my sister Twinsies, they told me that it is basically a television show, movie series, books, or things of that nature that you absolutely LOVE. You know how it is when you see the Harry Potter and Dr. Who fans? Well...that. Anyway, I am not a big "fandom" person, but I absolutely LOVE the show Scandal, which starts my girl Kerry Washington.  My manicure was created based on a dress worn by the lovely Olivia Pope in one of the episodes. Here's a pic...

I started off the mani using two coats of Zoya Willa, an "onyx black creme" from the Wishes Winter 2014 Collection. This baby was super pigmented and needed only one coat to become completely opaque. As always, I still used two. LOL! I used Willa on my pinky and index fingers and added topcoat (KBShimmer Clearly on Top). For the ring and middle finger accents nails, I used two coats of Polish My Life's Nude Lace (a nude creme). As always with her polishes, the formula was excellent. For the lace part of Olivia's dress, I added a small section of a lace water decal from the Born Pretty Store.

After placing the lace water decal on the nails, I gently wiped away the excess water and applied topcoat. Again, I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I think this mani represents the simple sophistication of the dress shown above. What do you think?
