Twinsie Tuesday | Ordered by Another

In actuality, today's TT post should be ordered by our significant other.  My boyfriend, however, will only respond "blue" when I ask him anything nail related.  So I went to my other life partner, my best friend, who has become quite the nailphile over the past year or so, who immediately suggested I recreate this look from Pshiiit.  Best of luck to me to recreate something she did.

But I tried.  Pshiiit used Essie Buy Me a Cameo as a base with Color Club Gingerbread for the glitter sponging.  I don't have either of those so I had to find some alternatives.  I started with Sephora Formula X Alchemy, which is so stunning it blinded my camera (I'll have to swatch it alone so I can really show you how complex and magical it is).  I then sponged a mix of Sally Hansen Big Glitter Topcoat Dressed to Thrill and Nina Pro Ultra Holographic Topcoat to the tips.  

I think the complexity of Alchemy messed a little too well with the holographic, metallic glitter of the tips; coupled with the reflection from the sunlight and camera, the glitter sponging kind of disappeared in my photos.  I hope the macro I included helps to give a better idea of what this looked like in real life and is at least a worthy homage to Pshiiit!

  1. Ohhhh I like it! My husband is the same way: he responds "the one on the right". You, sir, are literally useless at this.

  2. Exactly! He doesn't even like blue polish but I'm convinced it's the only color he knows.

  3. Cute I love the sparkles/shimmer of both shades

  4. Life partner, it came out beautifully!

  5. This is pretty! I think you did a good job recreating her nails.

  6. Ohhh, I love this!! It's so sparkly!

  7. Love this color so much! Perfect for Xmas and New Years!!
