Happy Twinsies Tuesday lovelies!!! I know...I know! Long time, no post eh? Well, sometimes life gets in the way. One of the biggest things that took place recently, was my sweet Kendall had surgery to have her tonsils removed. :( Boy was that horrible! I hate the helpless feeling of knowing you are doing something that's in your child's best interest, yet it causes them pain. A LOT of pain. Pain that she is too young to understand and too young to have to endure. Anyway, we (she) made it through and she is back to herself! Thanks to everyone who saw my Instagram post and said a prayer for her.
**In other news.... I am wearing liquid gel over my natural nails, as they were horrible throughout the brutal winter here in New England. Also, a few diamonds were missing from my wedding ring (I guess it's really the engagement ring), so I am wearing my anniversary band with my wedding bands until they return from the jeweler.)**
Today's post calls for the Twinsies to share a manicure inspired by a favorite cup or mug. My choice shouldn't come as a surprise, as this particular Starbucks tumbler has been all over the place lately. I think I saw one blogger refer to it as "The Nail Blogger Cup" or something of that nature! I love collecting different mugs and tumblers from Starbucks, so I knew I had to have this when I first laid my eyes on it. It's a purple, teal, and blue colored duochrome metal tumbler. It's one of the pricier ones, but it is so worth it! Hehe!
To represent "The Nail Blogger Cup," I used KBShimmer Shade Shifter. According to KBShimmer, "Shade Shifter is a multi-chrome that changes depending on light and angle from cyan, to blue, to red orange, to purple, and more." In other words, perfection in a bottle! To make it even better, the formulas was great and went on without any issues in just three thin coats. I used one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for a quick drying and super shiny topcoat.
Ahhhhh....I just love polishes like this! I must say, I thought I was really doing it with my matching cup and nails at work! Haha! I did receive a lot of compliments, so....
Here are some shots of #MyNailsandMyCup...
Such a perfect match!
Anyway, I love how this polish appears to be the perfect representation of this tumbler. With the popularity of this particular tumbler at the moment, I would be surprised if another Twinsie didn't use this same one for their mani. Well, enough talking. Let's take a look at what they chose. Links below!
