Twinsie Tuesday: 3-D

This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is a manicure with a 3-D feature like stones, studs, or fimo slices. I went with studs, which I really think I need to wear more often because I'm crazy about the effect!

I decided to do a composite (another look that I am fast falling in love with!), combining floral nail art, a full-cover glitter, and a couple of corresponding cremes under the studs. I wasn't sure I'd be as into gold, since I'm usually a much bigger fan of silver, so I chose these colours specifically to compliment the gold-coloured studs. I think the combination works!

The golden glitter is China Glaze Angel Wings. Next to that I chose OPI Don't Talk Bach to Me as my base for the acrylic paint flowers (a combo I've done a time or two before), and the index and pinky are Essie Mojito Madness and OPI Suzi Likes Cowboys. Eep, sorry, a quick double-check, and I'm reminded that she in fact loves them. It's more than like. OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys.

Can't wait to see what the others chose for their 3-D accents, and I'm super psyched this week to welcome Cordia of Seriously Swatched back to Twinsie Tuesday--we missed you, girl!
