Twinsie Tuesday - Pond Mani

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

Twinsie Tuesday is back for the new year!!  Today's theme is to create a pond mani.  What is a pond mani, you ask?  Essentially it's a design sandwiched between layers of jelly polishes, so it looks like the design is floating on the nails.  Here's what I came up with.

For this mani I used Pure Nail Lacquer Lucid, a gorgeous blue jelly, and Pure Nail Lacquer Break Out, a silver metallic polish for the design.  I started with two coats of Lucid, then used my dotting tool to create flower shapes.  I then topped it off with another coat of Lucid.

This is a really simple, but fun look.  I love seeing the design through the polish.

What do you guys think?  Have you ever tried this technique?
