Twinsie Tuesday: Funky French

Twinsie Tuesday, ladies!


I knew our challenge this week would confound me.  As I am completely unable to do anything but polish my nails, I knew that a Funky French mani would not end well.


Let's start with my color choice, which I can readily admit was not good.  Since I literally waited until the last minute to get this done, I was limited in my options since I was away for the weekend.  Using my mani I had on Saturday (Essie Coat Azure, swatches forthcoming), I found a random bottle of dark pink polish at my grandmother's house that I thought might go well.  It did not.


And the technique, was, well...more funky than French.  I personally don't like the look of a French manicure and have minimal practice with it so my lines were kinda wonky.  My apologies in advance.


My only saving grace is that next week's challenge is waaaay more Amanda-friendly.


Check out my other Twinsies for what I imagine are worlds better Funky Frenches.
