Twinsie Friday ~ Gradient Nails

Hola Hola Polish Lovers....

I have a special post today, my basically TWIN Maria from Nails Made Simple and I decided to do twin posts!! YAY sounds like fun huh? We were having one of our late night text conversations and decided that it would be fun to do these twin posts! Give us some motivation or inspiration for manis :)

Our first twin post is a Gradient Mani.... Maria picked Blue and said I should pick a color .. of course I couldn't just pick one and make it simple I picked pink and purple ( I did this because I'm trying to use as many polishes from my October bag as possible) shhhhhhh Don't tell Maria that!!!

Anyways, it was fun doing this mani, eventhough I was not feeling it as I was working on it, but after looking at it for a while it grew on me! I had lunch with a friend of mine and her boyfriend, she couldn't stop looking at my nails and didn't understand how it was done. I told her it was just a sponge and mixing colors..then her boyfriend said yeah like painting a car you mix the color to get special effect WTF hahahah

Anyways... sorry for the long story.. on to the pics!!!



I used China Glaze Ahoy!, Orly Velvet Rope & Royal Navy.. I also added some Cover Girl Godess top coat!!

Don't forgot to check out my twin Maria's page Nails Made Simple and see what she has in store for us today :)  We will have another twin post next week :) don't miss out!


Til next time...

  6. Love this gradient mani and the colours you both picked! Funny to read what a man thinks about it as well, ROFL. Is that the Revlon quick drying top coat that you're using? I've tried it bt it just doesn't work for me :(

  11. AHA!!! no wonder you picked two colors!! LOL LOL LOL i told you i already know what color i want .. and im sure it wasn't a surprise i picked blue & then you text back with TWO colors.. hahah i was like hmm okay!! hahahhaha i love what you did! remember i told you i took my mani off? well thats because it looked something like this! LOL LOL but instead i had used blue as a base color. hahha and then it went down hill from there! that would of been funny though ..hahhaa i totally love your gradient better than mine! & you know what else i also have a picture holding the Revlon top coat but i didnt want to add too many so i didnt put it up.. now i think i should so we can be twins on that too!
