Twinsie Tuesday: Pond Mani

Hey everyone! Twinsie Tuesday is starting up again. We all took a short break because of the holidays and such. I'm so excited to be starting again! I really haven't been doing much nail art because of all the swatching I was doing but I really want to start doing that this year. Check out what I did for this week's theme down below.

This year, we have added 3 new members: Amanda, Savannah, Beckie so make sure to check out their awesome blogs! They really do have some great nail art and swatches! This year's first theme is pond mani. I've only used this technique once before which you can look at here. I wasn't sure what to do so I decided on something simple, a skittle mani. 

I used OPI I'm Never Amberrassed (thumb), China Glaze Keepin' It Teal (pointer), OPI I Can Teal You Like Me (middle), OPI Don't Violet Me Down (ring), OPI Be Magentale With Me (pinky). 

I was surprised that out of over 1000 polishes in my collection, I don't have many jellies. So I had to use my OPI Sheer Tints, which was actually good though because they've been in my untried pile for a while. 

This was super easy to do. I first did 3 coats of each color, dotted white acrylic paint, and then added two more coats, except for the China Glaze. Yeah, that's a lot of coats, but the Sheer Tints are really really sheer, no wonder no one liked them. 

I hope you guys like what I did, make sure to check out what the rest of the girls did down below.
