Twinsie Tuesday: First Polish Swatched

For this week's Twinsie Tuesday the theme is the first polish that we swatched on our blogs. For me that was China Glaze Liquid Leather, and sweet, fancy Moses, mine definitely looked like Baby's First Swatch. Clearly, clean-up was, back then, something that happened to other people. The polish itself is a great one, though, and I've been wearing it for the past couple of days as the star of this monochrome, composite manicure.

My thumbs are straight up China Glaze Liquid Leather black. The index fingers are Liquid Leather stamped over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (using Konad plate m83). Next came Bandi Metallic Silver, and then Liquid Leather again, with dotted flowers in China Glaze White On White and China Glaze Recycle...which I used on the pinky nails under a dense, saran wrap application of--guess what!--Liquid Leather.

This was actually my first full composite manicure, and I was really happy with the results! Of course, having a nice, basic black polish like China Glaze Liquid Leather as my starting point probably made it much easier to plan what to do with each nail, but this is definitely something I'm going to be doing again!

Fellow Twinsies, I'm looking foward to seeing y'all's first-swatch polishes!
