Twinsie Tuesday: Color Blocking!

I'd like to preface this post by saying that I liked this mani WAY more before I looked at the pictures on my computer... Yeah.

So, this week, our TT challenge is color blocking! I thought I'd do something simple for this, though it definitely could have turned out better. I did a little funky french, freehanded. Tape doesn't work out with me very well haha. Anyway, I did a base of China Glaze Surfin for the Boys and did the tips with Nails Inc Baker Street. I adore orange and blue together! And I'm a big fan of the shimmer vs creme thing going on here.

Uneven tips...

I promise it looks better at an arms-length haha.

I seriously can't wait to see what colors my Twinsies have put together!

  1. What cute combination! The colours look great together, and I like the shimmer/creme contrast. Ooh, and I just noticed that it matches your blog too! ^_^

    Haha, I have so many days when I like my nails, and then I see the pictures, all up close in macro mode... ;)

  2. I love orange and blue, too - GO BRONCOS!!! ;-) (actually, I got an orange and blue tattoo like 18 years ago before I was ever a fan of them, omg I am old)

    Aaaanyway I think you did a great job! And that is awesome freehand - I could never get it that straight!

  3. I like this! I don't know why you think the computer photos aren't great.
