Twinsie Tuesday: Marching Orders Take 3

Happy Twinsie Tuesday! This week we were assigned a marching order by a fellow twinsie to create a manicure based on their order. The lovely Elizabeth from Did My Nails gave me the following orders: "Make it a mix of stripes and solids, glitter and gradient, stamped or studded...anything you'd like to do--in any colors you want--but no more than 2 of your nails can be the same." It almost sounds like a riddle, right? I had fun with this order and here is what came of it:


Thumb and ring finger: Revlon Top Speed in Metallic and Shimmer Jenny
Pointer: Maybelline Color Show Onyx Rush and studs
Middle: Lime Crimes Once in A Blue Mousse and Lavendairy
Pinky: Lime Crime Lavendairy and Silver Metallic Sharpie

This week we are welcoming three new talented twinsies, Amber from Nails Like LaceHeather from Peace, Love, & Polish, and Róisín from Cuti-CLUE-les. Welcome!!
