Twinsie Tuesday- Pinterest Inspiration

PurchasedbyMe

PressSample
Hi there lovelies! I hope you are all doing well and having a much better/easier go at life right now. Unfortunately, I am dealing with a lot right now in my personal life. The most pressing issue is the looming death of my paternal grandmother. She is currently in hospice and expected to pass away at any given moment. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. 

Today's Twinsie Tuesday prompt is to create a manicure inspired by Pinterest. Honestly, this is one of the easiest prompts, as most of my nail art manicures are pinned to or found in Pinterest. For this manicure, I was inspired by this look by Lakeisha of Refined & Polished. Ironically, she created this mani for a TT post when we did grunge manicures. She was inspired by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails and she actually linked Sarah's review in her original post. Anyway, I pinned this mani to my Inspiration & Ideas board back when Keish first created it because I really love the colors she used. *Side note: could her nails and cuticles be anymore flawless? Ugh...

For my recreation, I decided to use my favorite color...purple! DUH! ;) Anyway, I used two easy coats of OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini from the Hawaii Collection (full review coming soon). I think this is such a pretty purple and the formula is great! I applied the purple to my thumb, index, and pinky fingers.

For the brushstroke accent nails, I used different colored cremes from multiple brands (sorry forgot to write them down). I decided to go with the same overall color scheme she used, but added in my purple. I really like these colors together.

The brushstroke technique wasn't difficult at all. Unfortunately, I still couldn't execute it as I would've liked. LOL! I really love how the colors came out in Keish's design, but I feel like mine aren't balanced. Does that make sense? Anwway, I wish both nails had come out more like the ring finger.

Overall, I like this look and I will try it again with more colors and hopefully it will come out better. This isn't a total fail, so I can definitely be proud of that. LOL!
