Tutorial Tuesday!

Hey guys, sorry once again about my lack of posts. If you're on my blog's FB page you might have seen that I was sick. The old man and I had our 4 year anniversary on the 16th, so that weekend we were busy, then I got strep right after! Boo...so after I got a bit better we were busy finding our little man a preschool, phew!

But now things are starting to get a bit back to normal :) And today I have another group challenge with some other polish ladies/bloggers I'm friends with :)

Today is tutorial Tuesday, which isn't me giving a tutorial, but following one for today's mani :) There are SO many good videos, pictures etc all over the net (including a lot of the girls blogs that I follow!) but I happened to find a picture on Facebook on Tip Top Nails South Africa's page, they posted on my FB and asked that I check them out, so I did :)

So for this fun mani I used a base of Essence Nail Art Twin Romeo, then using the long skinny nail art brush I started with Wet N Wild Ink Well and did tiger type stripes over my nail leaving plenty of space between each one, I followed with OPI Lucerine-Tainly Look Marvelous, then Finger Paints Easel Come Easel Go, and ended using Catrice Birds Flying High (which I just got in a surprise swap from Denmark, yay!).

I did use way different colors than the tutorial, and for my blue I did switch it a little bit from the tutorial as well. But I am in love with the end result. I think these colors are fabulous together, and it for me brings it all together in a sophisticated color scheme that's sexy! BUT let's see what you guys think! :)

For those of you that didn't click on the link, this is the original picture below :)

What do you guys think?

Until next time! Happy painting!

Pin It!


  1. That silver is gorgeous! I think yours turned out even better than the sample.


I love to get feedback! Your comments are important to me, and I read every one :)
