Bestie Twin Nails with The Polished Perspective!


Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a bestie twin nails post to share with you. This time with my good friend - The Polished Perspective! Make sure you go check out her blog and Instagram - she is so talented! 

This is also my 100th blog post! Whaaaaa? I really couldn't have chosen a better post for the 100th, I can't believe I've come on here 100 times to write things. Thank you guys so much for reading and watching me grow as a nail blogger and nail artist over the last year plus. I have learned so much and hope to keep learning and growing as my blog grows! Anyway, let's jump right in, shall we? 


Bestie Twin Nails with The Polished Perspective 

We decided to do some watercolor nail art based on the image at the top there - found by TPP (The Polished Perspective). I tried to start out doing watercolor flowers but that was a fail so I did a watercolor base and drew some black floral outlines with acrylic paints instead!



I started with a base of Orly White Tips. Then I started blobbing Shinespark Pumped Pink, Psych'd Purple, and Yuppie Yellow on different areas of my nails. While the polish was still wet, I used a nail art brush and some pure acetone to thin out the small blobs and sort of smear them around on my nails until they had combined a little. I waited for all of that to dry and then used a striping brush to hand paint the floral details over the watercolor. Once the acrylic was dry, I topcoated everything with OPI Matte Topcoat.

I really love how these turned out! What do you think? 

Thanks for reading!
