Twinsie Tuesday- Inspired by Your BFF


NothingtoDisclose

Happy Twinsie Tuesday lovelies! Today the Twinsies have returned and we are welcoming some new members to the crew! I would like to welcome Marisa at A Beauty in the Business, Sara at The Call of Beauty, Sharon at Behind Green Eyes, and Steph at Lovestruck Lacquer. Welcome ladies....so glad to have you join! 

Today's theme is "Inspired by Your BFF." I decided to do this mani based on my BFF Athanasia. I've talked about her a few times on the blog, but she's my girl! Since she and I share a lot of common interests, including a love for makeup, nail polish (especially holos), and favorite colors, creating this post was fairly easy! I began with a base of two coats of OPI DS Extravagance. This is a beautiful berry colored scattered holographic polish with an amazing formula. People have read about this polish forever, but this was my first time using it. I absolutely love this color and it's perfect for the fall.

She usually goes for pretty simple skittlette type manis and loves to mix stripes, dots, and chevrons. I simply added vertical stripes on my middle finger and polka dots on my ring finger. I used one of my favorite black policies, Orly Liquid Vinyl for the black. I don't think you could ever go wrong with a simple mani with accents!

 I can't wait to see what the other ladies created for today's theme. Also, don't forget to stop by and visit our new Twinsies and welcome them to the group!

Twinsie Tuesday- Ocean Inspired


PressSample
Hey there everyone! It's been a long, long time since I have made an appearance on P2P. I know, I know.... I've thought about making a separate post to "announce" my return to blogging multiple times. However, I decided against doing so, as it's just not me. I didn't feel like an announcement was fitting, as it sometimes (IMO) comes off to be somewhat self-serving, "woe is me," and vain. Again, these are just my feelings, so please don't take me wrong. I just didn't want to be all like... "Hey, I'm back!" And y'all are all like... "Umm...and?" Hopefully you get my drift. At the end of the day, time away from P2P was needed for multiple reasons. Aaaanyywaay...on to the post....

I am back here today and excited to share a post with the Twinsie Tuesday Group. As a refresher, the fabulous group of bloggers create weekly (Tuesdays...duh!) themed posts and share them with our readers. This week's theme is "Ocean Inspired." To be honest, there hasn't been a lot of polish wearing in my life recently, but I have been drawn to certain colors more than others. Recently, that "magical" color has been blue. Literally...all shades of blue. Since the ocean is the theme, blue is a very logical and safe choice. 
Ocean-Inspired-Manicure

I used KBShimmer Low & Be Bold for this mani. This blue is one of my favorite polishes! Two easy coats leaves you with perfectly bold cobalt blue nails. I mean...who doesn't love a pretty blue polish? 
Ocean-Inspired-Manicure

I wanted something simple, so I decided to create some negative space stripes on my middle and ring fingers while adding seashell studs for the touch of ocean inspiration.  If you know anything about me (yes...you will have to think pretty far back), you know that I really love to create nail art looks with double accent nails, so I am really happy with how these turned out. What do you think? Do you have any other ideas for an ocean inspired manicure? 

Make sure you check out the Ocean Inspired manicures from the other Twinsies! Toodles!
