Twinsie Tuesday ~ Grunge Mani

Hey dolls! The theme for today’s Twinsie Tuesday was to do a “grunge” mani. I decided to go with the Chalkboard Nails grunge tutorial for this look. I started with a base of Cult Nails Party Time, a bright blue creme. For the double accent nail, I applied one coat of Cult Nails Tempest, a white creme. The shades chosen for the grunge effect were Cult Nails Devious Nature (pink creme), Riot (turquoise creme), Party Time, and Fetish (black matte creme). I applied the lighter colors first and ended with black as done in the tutorial. Here’s the final look:



I really like the way this turned out. The colors go together nicely and the black is a great contrast. Initially I thought I would pull out my black crackle for this look, but the tutorial was easy enough as is. The final look is edgy, abstract, and pretty cool. Be sure to check out how the other Twinsies interpreted this theme down below.

    This looks amazing, perfect execution!

  • So so pretty!! I have party time and it stained my nails super bad. Does it stain yours?? If not what base coat did you use?? I thought about applying it over white to possibly help it not stain because it is beautiful!

    • Thanks love! I’ve worn Party Time once before and it didn’t stain. I use Sally Hansen Double Duty as my base coat.
