Twinsie Tuesday: Twinsie Revisited


Morning, all.

For today's Twinsie theme, we can revisit any TT challenge we particular enjoyed.  I had a difficult time deciding what to choose, but in the end I wanted to use this as a do over for a Twinsie fail.  Almost exactly a year ago, one of our challenges was to post a holographic polish; I used Kiko 255, a deep purple with the most ridiculously hidden holographic glitter I think I have ever used.  A real holo disappointment.

To make up for that, I present you with a really lovely mani I wore for a number of days last week and that I completely fell in love with.  Behold Bondi Botanical Beauty with one layer of Savina Fairy Dust holo topcoat.





This mani was so girly and spring-like, I really hated taking it off.  While Botanical Beauty is a rich, purply pink pastel creme, it absolutely comes alive with that little bit of Fairy Dust, that twinkles ever so subtly and delicately.  The scattered holo effect is somewhat stronger than the pictures (both with and without flash) allow, but didn't detract for the soft pastel base.  I have a feeling I will be using my new Savina topcoat a lot in the upcoming weeks.
