Twinsie Tuesday: Sideways French

I have seen some "sideways french" manicures that are all smexy and sleek, and just thinking about how cute these can look makes me even sadder at how mine came out this week. First attempt, pitiful. Second attempt, anger and recriminations. Third attempt, resignation. I call it "interpretive watermelon."

The players are Sally Hansen Presto Pink with side-swooshes of butter LONDON Jack the Lad and dots of vaguely seed-like black. I think it was actually a pretty good idea, but I didn't really do it justice, what with "roughing it" and all while I'm still on the road. Eh, can't win 'em all. Looking forward to seeing what my fellow Twinsies made of the side-french mani!
