Twinsie Tuesday- Anti-Valentine's Day Manicure


PressSample
Hiyah there lovelies! It's Tuesday and today's Twinsie Tuesday prompt has set us on a mission to create anti-Valentine's Day manicures. As you all may know, I lack creativity and any real artistic abilities, so I perused the Interwebs to find inspiration for this manicure. Unfortunately, I was unable to find the original source to credit the artist for this idea, but I am providing the link for you to check it out where I found it. CLICK HERE!
I used multiple polishes to create this look including: KBShimmer Eclipse (black creme), KBShimmer Eyes White Open (white creme), Zoya Daisy (yellow), Zoya Eden (hot pink), Zoya Leslie (lavender), Zoya Lillian (pastel blue), and Zoya Tiana (pastel green).

I started by painting each of my nails with one of the five Zoya colors. Once it was dry, I used a heart cutout and KBShimmer Eclipse to create the black hearts. I added KBShimmer Clearly on Top and allowed it to dry while I completed the other nails. I added small dots to the pinky and index fingers using KBShimmer Eyes White Open and Eclipse.

After these steps were complete, I added the "not so sweetheart" messages to the center of each heart. I thought this was a super cute take on an anti-Valentine's Day theme, so I used "ew" and "no," which were used in the original manicure credited above. I added my own little twist (if you can even call it that) and wrote "Boy Bye" on the middle finger nail.

After everything was complete, I added topcoat and there you have it! I actually really like the way this came out. I think it's kind of fun to go against the grain since we are currently being flooded with all kinds of pinks and reds, hearts and flowers, and all that lovey dovey stuff. Anyway, I'm sure the super creative Twinsies will have some great manis to share with you today. Check out their looks by clicking on their links below.
