Twinsie Tuesday | Holiday Special

Despite our month hiatus, the Twinsies are back today with a holiday special mani!

In theory, I wanted to do a mani that looked like a present.  Holiday-neutral, using the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel chrome foils which are perfect for this time of the year.  I started with a base of Sally Hansen Himalaya, a nude creme from last year's designer collaboration series.  Once dry, I used Born Pretty Store plaid pattern nail vinyls to create the gift wrapped look.  I've had pretty good luck with nail vinyls in the past, unfortunately, not all nail vinyls are created equal.  These both stuck too hard in places and pulled up the base mani color and stuck too loosely allowing the top color to bleed through (look at my ring finger...so upsetting).

What's not upsetting are the Miracle Gels, but that's no surprise as I'm a huge fan of this line.  The colors I used for the metallic look are Terra-Coppa (also the base for my index finger), a pink-toned copper with silver shimmer; Buffalo Nickel, a classic silver chrome with great shimmer; and Game of Chromes which also shares that delicate silver shimmer giving it a really light gold appearance that I love.  I accented my index with an OPI stud gifted to me by my Twinsie Chelsea.  Not sure what I was going for with that but it brings out the chrome from the rest of the nails so there's that.

While not my favorite mani I've ever done, I figured I'd show you the truth behind the nail vinyls in case anyone was interested in purchasing these.  Nevertheless, I highly recommend the Sally Hansen Miracle Gels.  These polishes last and the color range is insane for a gel polish line that comes off with basic remover and is sold in drugstores. 

Anyways, wishing everyone a happy and a healthy holiday season and a very happy new year!
