Twinsie Tuesday | Flag Inspired

Aaaand we're back!

After a month hiatus, the Twinsies are back with more Tuesday nail prompts to keep you entertained on a weekly basis.  To start September off, we manis inspired by flags.  I thought I was sooo clever riffing the American stars and stripes in a purple motif.  I can do lines, thought I, I can place stars, thought I.  I thought so very wrong.

I began with a mani of Madam Glam Lilac Madness (review coming soon!), a dusty lavendar perfect for fall.  I think placed striping tape down over my middle finger and layered Sally Hansen Boho a-Go-Go, a deep plum from their fall Miracle Gel line (full swatch coming soon too!).  I then attempted to place some neon purple stars on my ring finger in diagonal lines.  And that's when the shizz hit the fan.

Those stars just weren't having it and refused to be set diagonally.  I tried resetting them but that only disturbed the base mani so once I gave up I just put a top coat on to smooth everything over and ended up with what appears to be nail warts under a glaze. 

Somehow, instead of a purple representation of the American flag, I ended up with a laminated futuristic nail ailment.  It's all very odd.

And on that lovely note, welcome back!
