Twinsie Tuesday: Composite Mani

This week's TT theme is an open one, a week for us to revisit a past theme we especially enjoyed or maybe catch up on one we might have missed. Fortunately I haven't had to miss very many weeks, but I decided to take this opportunity to "officially" make up the combination manicure I missed last August when I was on the road. Here goes!

For my composite manicure (aka combo, mish-mash, skittle, etc.) I picked Bandi Jade Blue for my highlight colour. It's a bright shade that flirts with minty territory, and I thought it'd be a good contrast for the greyscale elements I chose to go with it. Dotted flowers and OPI It's Frosty Outside, a Liquid Sand from the OPI Mariah Carey 2013 Holiday Collection, and then teeny, white studs over Sinful Colors Black on Black.

Didn't quite get the flowers looking the way I wanted them to, but at arm's length I reallyreally like this manicure. And now, to see what my fellow Twinsies decided to do for this week's open theme!
