Twinsie Tuesday - Words

I wasn't quite sure what to for this prompt.  Then I remembered I had some water decals from a Fingr's nail art set I picked up several years ago.  I wasn't sure if they would still be any good, but they did work well enough to create this mani!  I previously used these water decals in a "love letter" Valentine's Day nail design from two years.

I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff.  I then used the dry brush technique to add the sparkly gold of China Glaze Mingle with Kringle.  I then applied the water decals to each nail.

My goal with this mani was to create an aged look to the "paper" the words were written on.  I also wanted to finish the look with matte topcoat, but cannot find my matte topcoat anywhere!  I reorganized a lot of my polish during the holidays, and now I can't find anything.  Be sure to check out the other Twinsie's looks below.

  1. I couldn't find my favourite topcoat after cleaning up either! This looks fantastic, love how it looks like pages from an old book.

    1. Thanks Sharon! I am constantly misplacing nail art supplies, but I at least can find things better BEFORE I organize!

  2. I just love the old rusted look to these nails.

  3. I love the aged look :) the addition of the gold really makes this mani! Haha I have trouble finding stuff after I reorganize too!

  4. These look awesome! The base that you created is really beautiful!

  5. You achieved the aged look really well - well done :)
