Welcome to another Twinsie Tuesday! This week our topic is "What's Your Sign?" and...and to be honest, I don't think I've ever been more conflicted about a manicure. See, I'm a Pisces, so I was thinking a sort of sparkly fish scale design would be cool, and running snugly alongside that idea is the thoroughly '70s vibe that goes along with asking that groovy question, "What's Your Sign?" Thus the story in my mind grapes went something like, "Shiny scales... the '70s... sparkle... disco... ZOMG, THIS." Yes, I would change the colours just a little to be a tiny bit more fish-like, and the result would be Disco Pisces win! Or possibly not.
I clearly have a lot to learn about how to place those little glequins to get the full, lush mermaid's tail effect, and honestly, the end result looks nothing like fish scales or a disco ball. So, while I was definitely inspired by the theme, I can't give myself a passing grade for actually conveying the theme. At all.
On the other hand...my nails are literally dazzling, a total glitter-palooza, and how could I not love that?!
My base colour here is China Glaze Below Deck, which I decorated with individually placed glequins in silver, lavender, rosy pink, and champagne gold, and before I do these again I seriously need to figure out how to light the room so that I can
see what I'm doing without blinding myself in the process. I'm thinking sunglasses might be involved. These nails were just throwing sparkle everywhere!
So, Pisces or astrology? Not even a little bit. But I really, really loved them! Definitely going to try this look again sometime soon. Hopefully my fellow Twinsies had more luck than I did with the actual assignment!
