Twinsie Thursday: Puzzles!


Hello lovelies!

Today I have a mani that is part of the Twin Nails Collaboration! This month's theme is colours and me and my Twin-for-the-month Gemma from My Adventures In Nail Art are doing Primary Colours. We decided to throw in a puzzle pattern too, for it is still Autism Awareness Month, so all that turned into this:

I used Essence "Fame Fatale" for the red, NYC "Lexington Yellow" for the, well, DUH, and HEMA no. 23 for the blue. The silver is Rimmel "Shooting Star". 
I started out by painting the different colours. Then I outlined them. With a dotting tool, I placed dots where the connecting bits are. Then I placed a slightly smaller dot of white in the middle of that, and then I painted that with the matching colour. I topped it all off with SV.

    1. Aww thank you! Did you take pics of yours? Oh and the first time I did them, they looked awful, so I had to redo them. So just do them again and they'll be better, for sure!

  4. You both did such a great job! I love how you guys paired the bright primary colors with a pop of silver sparkle, very interesting :)

  5. Both of you did an amazing job with this one. I also adore how the silver puzzle piece shines through.

    I've seen a bunch of Autism Awareness manicures pop up over the past month, but I think what you did is one of my favorites <3
