Twinsie Tuesday: Tip Nail Art


So let me preface and say that today's Twinsie mani from me will be a dud.  Tip nail art?  Yeah, okay, sure.  So up my alley, right? 

I was speaking with Elizabeth about this week's challenge and as I bemoaned the task and whined that I would probably expend more energy trying to cheat my way through this week's challenge then actually complete it, she reminded me that I had dotting tools.  So having come to no good cheating conclusion, I grabbed three bottles of KBShimmer Spring 2014 cremes (review coming soon!) and when to town.

Index and ring is Sky Jinks, a rich medium sky blue.  Ring and pinky is My Life's Porpoise, a cool-toned soft dove grey.  I (messily) dotted Eclipse, a glossy black over the tips.  Not too exciting, but fulfill's the task.


I have a weird feeling that if Marisa had this base to work with, she'd work her magic and there would be some glittery accent that would bring this all together.  However, as this is my mani, this is all you got.  Sorry, ladies.

For what I imagine is infinitely more advanced and pretty tip nail art, make sure to check out my Twinsies' posts.

  1. These new KB's are amazing! I love the simple dots at the top though, sometimes less is more!

  3. Lol at Marisa working her glitter magic. I need to swatch the rest of the KBShimmer cremes. I was impressed with the formula of the first two I tried.

  8. Lol, thanks! And yes, I was so surprised to have received the second set of cremes, they're fabulous! I'm so happy with the ones I got, but to be honest, I was slightly lemming that yellow ;)
