Twinsie Tuesday: Animal Inspired



It's Twinsie Tuesday again!



This week's theme is "Animal Inspired".  My first inclination was to do leopard print again because, well-I'm obsessed with leopard print, especially on nails. I decided to push myself to try something else.  I have seen many people do a "buzzing bee" manicure and decided to give it a shot.



I used Julep Robin as my base and topped my ring finger only with CND Silver Sparkle.  Then I did the bee, the "dots" and the close up flower on my thumb freehand with some teeny nail art brushes:
My bee is very chubby.


It never fails that I don't wait enough time between doing the nail art and putting the topcoat on- I always smudge something! I am too impatient. Besides that little mistake, I was happy with my bee nails!

I can't wait to see what the other Twinsies have up their sleeve for our animal inspired theme. Check them out with me:

  4. Aw, this is sooo cute! And I love that you did a bumblebee mani without a yellow base, which most people do. The blue is 10x better!
