Twinsie Tuesday ~ Inspired by a Blogger

Purchased by Me

Hey dolls! As soon as I saw the Twinsie Tuesday theme for this week, I knew exactly what I was going to do. The theme was to create a mani inspired by another blogger. A few weeks ago, Lucy from Lucy’s Stash posted on how to create the speckled polish look using jellies and Nubar Black Polka Dot. I immediately ordered Black Polka Dot from Amazon (I’m not sure why I didn’t already have this in my stash) to recreate this look. As with most ideas we bloggers have, other reviews and manis came and went before I got around to trying it. During the spring, Loreal released a collection of jellies and I picked up the purple and green shades. I knew that I wanted to pair one of them with Black Polka Dot and I must say that I’m extremely pleased with how it turned out.

I started with a base of Loreal Creme de Mint, a light green jelly. I have a lot of jellies, but none quite this shade of green! The formula was easy to use and thin (as with most jellies). Three coats were used below. There is still some visible nail line at that point, but I wasn’t concerned because I knew I would be adding a fourth coat to complete the jelly sandwich.

Next, I added two coats of Nubar Black Polka Dot, which consists of black hex glitter and microglitter in a clear base. I used two coats to get the desired amount of black hexes on each nail. The formula was not thick at all and easy to use. I didn’t have any issues with gooping or dragging as I added on layers. Finally, I added one more coat of Creme de Mint to complete the jelly sandwich.

I absolutely adore the way this turned out! I no longer need any of those speckled polishes from other brands because I can make my own. This shade of green is super pretty and the black gives it an edgy look. Although I’m going to say I can’t wait to try this speckled look with other colors, in reality I know that I more than likely won’t do it anytime soon. Oh the life of a nail blogger; too many polishes, too little time. Be sure to take a look at what the other ladies have created!
