Red, White and Blue Striped Nails | Twinsie Tuesday

This week’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt calls for us to recreate a manicure from another of the Twinsie Tuesday participants. I chose a pretty red, white and blue striped manicure.

This week’s Twinsie Tuesday prompt is vampy. To me, vampy is all about dark red, so I did a burgundy and red needle drag manicure.

The two prompts for this 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge were tie dye and fugly. I didn’t have many ideas about what to do, and I’ve just returned from holiday, meaning I am really busy catching up with things. So I took the easy option and created a tie dye accent nail which I […] Read more
