Twinsie Tuesday: Thanksgiving


It's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, so I bet you could guess what this week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is, right?  Thanksgiving!  I really had no idea what I wanted to do for this theme. I finally decided on 'Apple Pie', because, honestly-that (and stuffing) is my favorite part of Thanksgiving ;) I am a reformed carb addict, but clearly Thanksgiving is the time to splurge a little!  I think that pumpkin pie is usually the more popular choice on this holiday,but I don't like pumpkin (gasp!), and I LOVE apple!

Moving onward, here are the polishes I used:


I started with 2 layers of China Glaze "Desert Sun". As soon as I tried this polish over the summer, I knew I would used it for Fall- it just screams "Autumn" to me:
Then, I added one layer of "I'm Not Lion" on top. This reminds me so much of cinnamon and sugar, which is what inspired me to go with the apple pie theme:


 And then, I did some lattice "crust" with Essie "Brooch The Subject".  I'm not totally in love with this, but it does make me want apple pie:


Don't forget to see what the other Twinsies did for their Thanksgiving manicures:
