Every once in a while we need to step out of our comfort zone, right? Thankfully we have things such as mani swaps and Bestie Twin Nails to help us try new things we wouldn't otherwise think to do. Today I have a mani that was a result of Bestie Twin Nails. I really enjoyed doing them! Read on for more info and pics!

Nothing to disclose
So I started out with my usual base of Qtica and OPI Nail Envy. I've had some peeling on my Cindy hand middle finger (eff you, middle finger!!) so I needed to file it down pretty far. I think using Qtica helps to keep my nails growing nicely. That damn middle finger though...

I used two coats of Color Club Cosmic Fate on my index and pinky fingers, and two coats of Essie Sugar Daddy on my middle two fingers. I love Sugar Daddy for a negative space mani. It is so sheer but adds that little bit of pink that makes for lovely negative space. I stamped over them all using MPolish Fresh Perspective and Uber Chic Beauty plate 1-02. I then topped it all with KBShimmer Clearly on Top quick dry topcoat.

I used straight nail vinyls by GlamMyMani to block off the middle parts of my nail, and to create the edge for the design on my index and pinky fingers. I then used Colors by Llarowe Obsessed with Marilyn and Color Club Cosmic Fate on the outside of the vinyls.

|Oh, hey, I have a thumb! ;-)|
|Cindy hand, look at that stubby middle fingernail!!|
It's not exactly like our inspiration pic, but I think it's pretty close! I enjoyed stepping out of my usual mani mind and trying something different. Loved the end result!
|Macro shots are fun!|

And because holographic goodness, I couldn't pass up a sun shot!
