Twinsie Tuesday - Copycat Mani Take 2!!

Hi everyone!!  Hope your week is off to a good start!  I was off yesterday and I'm off today also because it's my birthday and I refuse to ever work on my birthday.  No plans to do anything, just relax.  That's the way I like it ;0).

This week's Twinsie Tuesday challenge is for us to copy one of our twinsies.  I had to copy Rachel and I have to admit, I had a mini panic attack.  Rachel does the most amazing nail art and very well!!  So after I relaxed a little, I searched her blog for something I thought I could replicate.  I saw this one not too long ago and thought maybe this is something I could try.

You can see the details of Rachel's mani in the link above.  For my manicure, I started with two coats of Revlon Gray Suede as a base.  I then created the spots with OPI Bronzed to Perfection and used a dotting tool for the black with Nicka K Noir.  I then free handed the brown over it with Aldo Chocolate Factory.  I finished the mani off with Beauty Secrets top coat.

While the mani came out pretty close, Rachel's was much neater.  I ended getting too close to the cuticle with the brown, so I tried to cover it up with my watermark :-/.  It still turned out to be a really cool look though.

What do you guys think of this manicure?

Make sure you visit all the twinsies to see their copies of each other!  This is going to be fun!

  2. Haha! I love your sneaky watermark cover. I'd have never noticed! This looks awesome. :) I have yet to try freehand leopard print. It looks so intimidating to me! Also ---- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I totally agree with your don't work on the birthday rule.

  3. I think this looks stunning. Something about the natural brown leopard/cheetah print that is so classic.
